23 February 2021

Next week we will be announcing full details of Annually 2021, the latest edition of the hardback book which PSB publish every year. Annually will be accompanied by a two-track CD single featuring a dramatic new song, almost ten minutes long, entitled “Cricket wife”, plus the lockdown version of “West End girls” which PSB debuted online in June last year. “Cricket wife” uses orchestral sounds and was written as a classical-style instrumental piece by Chris over which Neil sang lyrics taken from a poem he had written. Both Chris and Neil recorded their parts at their homes and Pete Gleadall mixed the final track. Artwork is by Farrow.

What d'you want?
You've got nothing to say
and you can't
hide that look of dismay
Why pretend?
You only want revenge
It's been said
I'd be dead
If looks could kill

Where'd you go
with that threadbare crowd
still in tow?
Do they appreciate your
tales of woe?
Droning on and on
