I'd say there was definitely something afoot.

There’s something on the way for sure. A book? A Polaroid collection?

Three pics in a week - all thematically titled "Polaroid from photo session..."

I don't believe there's nothing to see here...definitely something going on in the PSB camp.

A proper exhibition would be fab. Something V&A style, though they're a bit more ICA in attitude.

Yes! I really do think that might be it. Of course there have been comparable things with David Bowie at the V&A, and the Rolling Stones I think. There was one for The Jam a while back, and that's when I thought, well surely PSB will do that at some point. I also remember going to what might turn out to be a "mini version" at the National Portrait Gallery to go with the release of Catalogue.

^^^^ As had been said elsewhere on these forums, if Kylie can merit an exhibition at the V&A then so can these Boys. She had what.....those gold hot pants and that white hood dress thingy that required a LOT of boob tape. Here's hoping they're getting an exhibition.

Absolutely not. What do we know 'till now?

1) all three images are Polaroid
2) all three pet texts cite the photographer who took the picture
3) all three the pictures are form late '80s, one for year (In case you're questioning, yes: 1990 is the last year of the eighties*)

Now everybody could elaborate an own theory...

*EDIT: to my great surprise some sources states that a decade is from year 0 to 9: 1980-1989. It's not the same as a century or a millennium. The debate is open.

I have a more delusional idea, actually a dream. IMPERIAL, a serie of 3 shows playing PLEASE, ACTUALLY & INTROSPECTIVE in full.
But I think the exhibition theory is more likely to happen.

And another point to your decade discussion I think once Chris said that the 90s started in 1987, with the arrival of the acid house scene.

Anyway, keep on dreaming folks

Blimey! Not seen that much 'slap' on a face since the good old days of Alexis Colby vs Krystle Carrington. *wipes tear from heavily mascara-ed eye*

They've posted a #PetText with a photo from 1996 „The Ant & Dec Show“.
