Anyone seen this?

Yes I posted the link earlier in this thread. I visit the site compulsively every day. I think it's too early to panic that PSB are ditching the CD single. They probably see BtH as a light release.

Hello guys. I am from Argentina and I am having serious trouble to order this 7" from the official page. I keep getting a message that I need to contact my bank first to authorize the payment but my bank says they are not getting any payment order, so I am in a damn loop.

Does anybody know any other site I can order from? or can you let me know as soon as you discover any? pleaseeeee

thanks in advance!
I am from Argentina too. The problem is not the official page, Visa and Master credit cards are having that problems in ALL internet pages on this last days, I hope it´ll solved soon. Anyway, the 7" will be available all around (amazon, juno records as an example) so we can buy it from that sites too, even cheaper than on the official site! But not on pre-order..we can buy it once it´s released on December 13th ;)
Thanks for the reply. I had a friend from the USA order ir for me in the end.

A light release it might be, but the inclusion of a proper b-side track makes it a valid single release in my eyes.
And a B-side not released on CD, that's something. But then again: Euroboy was cassette-single only, iirc.

Just as long as they keep supplying B-sides in any sort of format I am totally happy. my favorite ones are when they include 2 new songs on them

Neil’s delivery is so good on this one.

I know someone mentioned auto tuner but he does really seem to hold those notes well

you could say conventional ... and I could claim intentional

Yeah, I think that was a bit of fake news from Super Deluxe Edition there.

I suspect the boys are thinking of this as "the indie single"... Bernard Butler on guitars, first played and announced on Radio 6, not conducive to the full remix treatment etc. - so it's out on 7". After all, how many "indie singles" come out on 12" nowadays, let alone CD single?

SDE did realize though that their format choices are "fit for purpose" - like how they tried to land a hit with Thursday, so the CD was actually chart compliant.

If the Monkey Business description is apt, I'm predicting several remixes and a return to the CD single and 12" format.

Retro. :)

Like it now, it's grown on me in a "Night Song" ''Boys Don't Cry'' kind of way, not that any of these are better than eachother
