    TBAs 2019

    And again, going back to my point of not getting the recognition in their own country - elsewhere in the world Depeche Mode will sell out massive stadia for multiple nights. Here, they’ll struggle to do two nights at an arena like O2 or Wembley. And with 54 charted singles everyone will have something to sing along to.

    TBAs 2019

    Has ever the phrase “a prophet has no honour in his own country” been more pertinent than when applied to Depeche Mode. In their prime they were one of the biggest bands in the world. They are definitely one of the biggest selling British bands of all time - having outsold the Who and David Bowie (although arguably his sad death may have seen him leapfrog Depeche Mode, as certified sales were pretty close ) and certainly the Cure. And yet still in the UK there are conversations about whether or not they are a band worthy of being the headline act. Sorry, I just had to get that off my chest. Sadly they won’t be one of the TBAs.

  5. A woman walks into a bar and says to the barkeeper, “I’d like a double entendres”. so he gave her one.
  6. I don’t think it’ll be Chems that everyone will wish they’d been at - for the simple reason that everyone will be at it.
  7. You’ve seen ‘em. Those Grime people. You’ve seen ‘em talking slightly menacingly over a backing track. You know, the Grimesters. You’ve seen ‘em. Shouting. And stuff.

But I think it will be too little, too late.

  10. I dont understand why people are negative about being negative. You have to be, otherwise the game will never end with people just adding points to their favourite. I dont want to be that bloke who comes on and tells the OP how it should be (and if I come across that way I do apologise) but @Hugh Jass, have you thought about letting us have 15 points, of which five are + points and ten are -points

  12. They put on quite a good show. And unlike Stormzy or Tame Impala they’ve got round to releasing a new album recently.
  13. I cant work it out. There’s either too much or not enough tactical voting. I also can’t believe how addictive this thread is.
  14. How much do you wish you could go back in time to yesterday morning? At least we all picked up on it pretty quickly this time
