Hi! I'm Clare, I'm 21 and I love music and records. I love the thrill of going into a record store on the day an album is released and the excitement of buying it, opening it and listening to it. Physical music will always be so important to me. Supporting the record stores in my area is also very important to me so I try to buy locally as much as possible. Sometimes though I have to order online out of necessity.

Whilst my main format for music is CDs I've also begun buying vinyl, though I tend to focus on specific artists for vinyl. At the moment I'm particularly focusing on completing my collections of The Who and The Clash on vinyl. I've got all of The Clash's albums on original UK pressings in great condition - which I'm really proud of - so I'm in the trickier stage at the moment of sourcing their singles on both 7 and 12" format. The Who are proving to be slower and costlier all round so I've only found four of their albums so far on vinyl, but we'll get there! I'm also prone to buying PSB vinyl and records released on Factory too....

All of you who bought this album on release day just to flog it online for £40+ should hang your heads in shame, and I wish you could be banned from entering a record store ever again as you're not music fans - you're just interested in £££ at the ... See full review

This bootleg is completely fake. It's a mixture of tracks from the 1989 tour and the Performance tour - there's no American gig (or any other from the Performance tour) with that setlist. The audio is also clearly taken from both the officially released ... See full review

There's an acoustic version of Happy Jack as a bonus track on the 1995 reissue of A Quick One, so I think there's an error on the packaging saying that it's previously unreleased, unless there's two different acoustic version?

I'm hoping that since this has been unveiled as a teaser track that means it won't be getting released as a single. Frankly, this is a terrible song. It's a cheesy electronic-country song. PSB have released country tinged songs before, such as You Only ... See full review

I wasn't, though now that you mention it, it does sound an awful lot like that! On the entry for One Hit Wonder on geowayne it doesn't mention any specific composition, though maybe it's actually Bubadubadubadum? I know Neil has said that they will never ... See full review

A great lead single from the upcoming Super album that manages to be one of the most effortlessly danceable songs they've ever done. I'd even go so far to say that it's their strongest lead single since 1993's 'Can You Forgive Her'.

And thankfully, PSB ... See full review

An amazing album, but why is Kate's cover of 'The Handsome Cabin Boy' omitted? It was the B-side to 'Hounds Of Love' so by right it ought to have been included.

A great album, in fact one of their best. It's a dance album much in the vein of Introspective, or even their overlooked Relentless EP that accompanied Very. It's a much needed return to their dance roots after the somber affair that was Elysium. It's ... See full review
