oooh, that's going to be interesting... But on the other hand, I've promised myself not to listen to any track of JMJs new album until the full album is out. Choices, choices....

Stand our part of last nights doc and evidence that there's quality still to come

Shame they couldn't have started with this track instead of Dricos gay barn dance on acid

I'm hoping for a single release for the song, but that might be a PSB single-overload

haha

Not at all. I sincerely hope they release this track as a single. Its properly amazing even in this clip format, musically and lyrically.

Its restored in these 50 seconds.... my belief that there could be (one more) pot of gold still on the horizon.

These 50 seconds... rain all over anything from Super...

IMHO of course

More of a gay stomp on a cider farm.

"Neil would never sing about a levy going dry" is the PSB quote of the decade incidentally...

Wait, where are you hearing this?

From the sample, it sounds like something that could be on Super, not especially better. But I've only heard the snippet.

The synths are straight from The Final Countdown by Europe.

Just listened to the excerpt on the Radio 2 documentary. Yeah, it sounds great. To me it sounds like it would sit very well alongside Sad robot world and The dictator decides. A sort of moody electronic piece. I really hope their next album builds on this style as I think it it's a rich vein for them.
I'm always waiting...

Jarre tends to add bits and pieces from previous into his Electronica collaborations, a little bit like easter eggs,
or maybe just to amuse himself. In Brick England's case I think he has re-worked a 1988 track from the Revolutions album.

I think this maybe a bit better quality of the snippet:

The first album had a 12" of the Tangerine Dream track, so there is a possibility of a release
