  1. PSB vs PSB

    Which is the better PSB? The old, washed up Pet Shop Boys, whose greatest trick was convincing the world that Hallo Spaceboy was a load of old cobblers and not Bowie's best song of the 90s. West End Girls was good, but that was a very, very long time ago. Or Public Service Broadcasting, a concept band who have managed to transcend their seemingly limited premise with great melodies, atmospheric samples and awe inspiring arrangements. Move over boys, there's a new PSB in town!
  2. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    Fucking hell, this is the first time I've played "guess the announcement" several hours after it's happened!
  3. NFR NFC - to tide you over the fallow year

    Yeah, the bass is great!
  4. 2017 New Music Thread

    Wow, you've got a proper record out, not just some Soundcloud tracks, congratulations! I like it, Future is the stand out track and I'm also pretty keen on Panic, it took me a minute to realise the synth in the background was a stylised air raid siren. Nice one!
  5. PSB vs PSB

    That would be ideal, thinking about it.
  6. PSB vs PSB

    Where do we think PSB would place, if they turned up in 2019? They're obviously bigger than The Glade now, but I'm not sure where they would go these days. Are they headlining JPT/subbing WH level?
  7. PSB vs PSB

    Yeah, was a good do. He seemed genuinely impressed with the crowd for a Monday night. The drumming was really impressive on the new album tracks, very musical and inventive. And the percussion was good too. And of course, the dancing spacemen were great!

    That's the one! I was googling images. Will-o’-the-wisp? No. The Magic Roundabout? No... Parsley the Lion? Yes!

    Don't worry, once will be enough.

    This all over. Noel's song is upbeat and catchy. Liam's album is as grey sounding as Beady Eye and latter day Oasis.

    I was in my mid-twenties at the time and thought I was in his target age range. Dry Your Eyes always made me cry.
  12. Radiohead Headlining 2017

    I saw it when Jonny shared it on Twitter. It's so bang on, I particularly like Hail To The Thief.
  13. 2019 Headliners

    It probably doesn't matter so much, just interesting there seems to be some underrepresentation, but it's a pretty small sample, so probably doesn't meet much. And I forgot Stipe.

    Also at the risk of drawing up arbitrary rules of who is "a proper gay" I wouldn't call Bowie in 2000 an openly gay act, more an act who was open about bisexuality in his past. If you did count him, then you could have Jagger in 2011, Bowie's most famous gay, or Skin from Skunk Anansie the previous year, who actually has a same sex partner. Not great representation is it?

  16. it was ticketday last year today ......

    Everyone else checked this morning just to be sure, I take it?
  17. Liam Gallagher

    Off topic, but you've reminded me of the disaster for recorded music that is the Roses reformation. We would have have two albums of Brown solo stuff by now, with miles better tunes on them than the Roses retro bollocks. Stellify, F.E.A.R., the songs you mentioned - all better than the Roses 2 songs. Ah well, let's hope he's working on solo stuff as we speak.
  18. PSB vs PSB

    Me too. I won't be wearing two hats, but will probably be wearing my 9.Pablo shirt for easy efester recognition. Say hello if you see me!

    Leave your wife out of it!
  21. Radiohead Headlining 2017

    I think it's been mentioned a million times on here now I come to think of it.
  22. Radiohead Headlining 2017

    I've just noticed that at the end of Myxomatosis at Glasto, Thom is saying "Strong and stable, strong and stable, strong and stable" Am I the last to notice?
  23. NFR NFC - to tide you over the fallow year

    Wit woo! Is it the Grand Designs team, or someone else?
  24. NFR NFC - to tide you over the fallow year

    You missed a full stop.

    As a recovering grammar/punctuation Nazi, I'll jump at any possible invitation to make a correction. My latest is 'correcting' people on Facebook when they use 'less' correctly instead of 'fewer'. Always gets a rise!
