He was talking to a lady who asked a question...mentioned that he recognised her from the ROH DVD he had seen. She appears in it three times.

Could be wrong but I think he went on to mention it was a great video...
you could say conventional ... and I could claim intentional

Someone on Quietus' Facebook page mentioned rumours of PSB being involved in 2020 celebrations of Beethoven's 250th anniversary. Now just how cool would be that?
"It was a dark and stormy night."
"You know what's wrong with your stories? They lack subtlety."
"It was a sort of dark and kind of stormy night."

I believe The Quietus intend to make the stream available again in full soon, however if you are impatient, I have uploaded what was broadcast live here:

Sorry, this is going to sound really thick - I had the impression that Neil was going to do a book signing too last night. - Did he? Also, no one has mentioned Neil's book. Is it any good etc? :?: I should have said to those who went - I hope you had a lovely time.

This is the poem, as I've heard it

every day it passes by
the day one year on which I'll die
the date is not revealed to me
it keeps its secret patiently

Please correct me, since line 2 is confusing me.

''The Night I Fell in Love'' is included !!!!........They clearly didn't see the memo with that song featuring quite prominently on the Boys' 'Worst Songs' thread a few months back.

So............. let's play 'Guess the 100' !

Here's my shot:

West End girls
Love comes quickly
Later tonight
A man could get arrested
Jack the lad
It's a sin
Shopping
Rent
It couldn't happen here
Kings Cross
I get excited, you get excited too
Left to my own devices
Your funny uncle
Nothing has been proved
I want you now
If there was love
So sorry I said
Being boring
This must be the place I waited years to leave
Only the wind
My October symphony
The end of the world
Jealousy
It must be obvious
Miserablism
Can you forgive her?
I wouldn't normally do this kind of thing
Dreaming of the Queen
Yesterday when I was mad
The theatre
To speak is a sin
Hey, Headmaster
Shameless
Too many people
Decadence
Metamorphosis
It always comes as a surprise
Red letter day
Up against it
The survivors
To step aside
The truck-driver and his mate
Delusions of grandeur
The view from your balcony
The calm before the storm
Happiness is an option
You only tell me you love me when you're drunk
Boy strange
Silver age
Home and dry
I get along
Birthday boy
London
Email
Love is a catastrophe
The night I fell in love
You choose
Always
Between two islands
Searching for the face of Jesus
Psychological
The Sodom and Gomorrah Show
I made my excuses and left
Minimal
Luna Park
I'm with stupid
Casanova in Hell
Twentieth Century
Indefinite leave to remain
Integral
Girls don't cry
The Resurrectionist
Bright young things
Love etc.
All over the world
Building a wall
King of Rome
The way it used to be
Legacy
We're all criminals now
The former enfant terrible
After the event
Leaving
Invisible
Your early stuff
Breathing space
Ego music
Hold on
Memory of the future
Everything means something
Requiem in denim and leopard skin
Love is a bourgeois construct
Flourescent
Inside a dream
Odd man out
The pop kids
Twenty something
The dictator decides
Sad robot world
Weidersehen
Gunpoint has a firm voice

I was expecting "Vocal", to be honest. It's like a minimal stream of thought, really lovely.
