  2. Yesterday was 40 years since the Boys met! Wonder why this wasn't acknowledged by them in any way.

  3. 25 years of my favourite 90's PSB single. (Though Being Boring is a very close second.)

  4. Just discovered throught GeoWayne website that there is a different version of Positive Role Model
    PSB rendition
    Mixers: Florian Richter and Kai Deiner
    Disco 3
    album version (4:02)
    Also available on one of the "Further Listening" bonus discs accompanying the 2017 Nightlife reissue

    Mixer: [unknown at this time]
    "Studio version" (4:04)
    A slightly different mix from the above, officially released only on the press promo CD Five Titles from Closer to Heaven

    Looked on YT but I don't seem to find it. Someone know how "slightly different" is this second mix ?
  5. From memory, that mix only chops a bit off the intro (by accident?).... BUT, there's also a demo version which starts with the words "positive role model", and then goes for the sample.

  6. I finally found the Catalogue book for a decent price after years of looking. It's beautiful! If they re-print it I will flip a table I swear to God. We definitely need a second book though.
  7. Thanx a lot @Future Lover !
  8. I watched the Live in Rio DVD last night, I'd forgotten how soft porn the dancers were. *watches again*
  9. They're working on Annually 2022. What can we expect?

    • 15 pages of questions answered, including Chris saying things like "I quite like toast, if I'm honest"
    • A behind-the-scenes tour prep diary, with lots of discussion of pandemic-era travel and catering
    • Neil deconstructs the recent Paul Weller remix, and talks about the time they met at Smash Hits
    • The announcement that they're working on a soundtrack to an obscure Russian film from 1962 that's actually 48 minutes of Bolshy deconstructed and performed by a string quartet
    • In Your Imagination, a special colouring section featuring images from tour backdrops
    • Opportunities to make lots of money through further licensing of Opportunities (Lets make lots of money) in still more American TV ads
    • The announcement of a complete singles box set, featuring all versions of all songs, but available only on 226 coloured cassettes through their official web site for £1,210 (plus £310 shipping)
    • Neil's forthcoming children's book, Do I have to? about household chores and the importance of learning the value of hard work

    But honestly, I miss them.
