So anyway it’s not really a PSB observation but the guy who plays Omar in the new production is handsome as f***.

Great to read about Hit Music, one of the few neglected tracks from the imperial phase. And yes, that little bit in the video sounds very good. I still believe they should release a Laundrette EP in october or november to fill the gap between Dreamland and second single/240120. It'd definitely make 2019 the "EP year" in their history.
A Laundrette EP.

I'd give that a spin or two....
I bet it's a great song cycle! :D
Very good...
I reckon they're keeping their powder dry for the new album though.

They may wash their hands of the whole thing - just spin a yarn or two about it in the future.

Saw it in Leeds last night. Very enjoyable. Great staging. The PSB music sounds awesome played loud. A mix of new incidental music, snippets of the old 80s tracks, and the two new tracks, one at the end of each half. A traditional Asian music influence to some but but not all. The incidental music and 80s snippets are in the main very brief, with fade outs before the vocals. The intros to the likes of I Get Excited and Hit Music sound brilliant though. One piece of new incidental music reprises the lost riff from the Bobby O version of I Get Excited. Opportunities is used in a club scene... The end section of Paninaro is used to soundtrack a fight sequence and both sound brilliant. Later Tonight is on the song list but wasn’t used, to my ears anyway.

Angelic Thug is a quirky oddity and definitely not an album contender. No Boundaries is fairly lightweight pop but lovely nonetheless.

The actor is also called Omar! He looks good in all the publicity stuff. I haven’t seen the new production. But he is remarkable.

Google ‘Omar Malik actor’ 👍🏻
