Request: Posting advertisements of PSB singles in Smash Hits, NME and Melody Maker

#1 Post by psbfannyc » Thu 08 Aug 2019, 7:39 pm

Hi everyone!

Could someone please scan and post some old PSB "advertisements" that announced upcoming at the time PSB singles that appeared in at least Smash Hits, NME and Melody Maker? Please post them here. If there is a website that exists that houses some of those old advertisements, please let me know. THANKS in advance!

Shame none of it’s readable. Why weren’t they scanned in at a higher resolution? Would have been a great archive then!
Its taken me all of my life to find you

It's no "metamorfoze" standard (a standard we use here in the Netherlands), but resolution is 2000x2650 px and perfectly readable.

Fantastic post, wow, by the way I have no trouble reading these, a fine opportunity to stroll down memory lane.

Thank you for posting

What a great archive there, thanks a LOT! I´m downloading and reading non-stop!

I just can´t find the Suburbia ad...do it exists on Smash Hits??
A shame that it ends on 1989...if you know a place with scans form 1990 onwards..please let me know!! ;)

In the 1986 issue with the Boys on the cover Neil is already comparing themselves to Lennon/McCartney.

A little bit arrogant I'd suggest so early on in their career but by gosh have they earned that comparison in spades since then.

Neil the visionary clearly knew they had the creativity to match these legends even in 1986.
