*And Brotherhood 2 with EBW 11-20
I would love more if they release Singles 04-XX, because the second disc of 93-03 had a shitload of unreleased material on it

And Pumisher's Erection Song, please.  ::)
yes please. and they should keep the name!
no idea, no idea

I wonder if the teaser for Surrender is something totally separate from the Flashback (cue the song of that name) Friday? I know it’s being called a box set but I wonder if the other albums will have stuff similar like they indicate. Also, I wonder if they’ll put NG stuff up since it’s in the teaser (granted expectations with a grain of salt). Maybe at lease the instrumentals and Fantai will be online with No Need🙏?

We thought this before when Ed didn't tour and Direct Buki ended with "Goodbye, thanks to all of you". We were wrong.
The use of old material and some old tour stuff in the BITE gigs sometimes led me to believe that it is some kind of farewell. But after pre-NG tour i believe that they just fucking feel it in a new way.

Has it even happened before that they tour for more than two years?
Since I follow them, the tours were 2010-11, 2015-16, 2018-19.
Between were a few DJ gigs.

Chems release decent new album, release "singles" with expensive videos, go on a big ass tour with new visuals, announce a box set of Surrender, then say: we're also gonna remaster some classic videos and update our Spotify with some rarer stuff. Oh they also did a two hour Essential Mix with at least one new unreleased Chemical track on there (as well as a couple of shorter DJ mixes for Lauren Laverne and Annie Mac).

Reaction:
Does anyone get an eerie feeling that Tom and Ed might not be doing this for too much longer? 

Nope. I don't get that feeling.

We thought this before when Ed didn't tour and Direct Buki ended with "Goodbye, thanks to all of you". We were wrong.
Ah yes, before I get too cocky, I should acknowedge that I started the thread on that Direct Buki message. So I guess I'm guilty of this sort of speculation myself. But not this time. Nope. They're gonna keep on makin me high. Brexit may be a load of sh*t, but we still have the Chems.
I would agree with the rest of Enjoyed's comments as well.

Oh regarding the poll, please assume that I selected the missing option of:
No! Papal Disco.
DON'T. LOOK. DOWN.

I’d be happy if they would just put No Need on Spotify. That’s where my bar is.

but there is definitely a renewed enthusiasm from Ed, which combined with Tom's inhuman need to create audio magic on a daily basis, should give us a lot of hope for more to come.
That's the spirit. Thanks, Enjoyed!

Brexit may be a load of sh*t, but we still have the Chems.
This will invigorate them even more. I expect a MAH (Second Chapter) and Eve of Reunification on album #10: No Bollocks!

No! Papal Disco.
There you go, mah friend (now that I've lost my hypocritical stance on matters of voting)

Looks kinda upscaled. The aliasing effect in the windows are pretty noticeable. Or is it my weak graphics card? Also, the video upload date shows 2008. I don't how this works, but can you reupload content without changing the date?

Also, also, why is BRB in 16:9 whereas the others have are in their almost original aspect ratio of 4:3? Did they crop? Looks like the singles 93-03 DVD were cropped.

I noticed that as well. The post seemed to indicate it was "newly" remastered and re-released but a 10+ year old upload date contradicts that. Kind of odd..

Either way, good excuse to revisit a couple videos I haven't seen in ages. I'd even forgotten where the T&E cameo was in Elektrobank!  :))

Really keen to get The Test and Star Guitar in 1080p/4K!

Block Rockin' Beats: new footage: in the previous version, the agents persecuting our friends were using flashlights, and the latter were caught in the end.

Chema responded to me about Elektrobank video being blocked in the US. They said it should be fixed shortly.

They probably did some different versions. Maybe it was done for artistical reasons or, more likely, due to restrictions regarding broadcasting violence on certain airtimes? I wonder whether they were broadcasting that violent one after 10 on MTV?

There's more actually. You will see releases are being reposted under UMC (Universal Music Catalogue), some with newer tracklists and tracks that included before. They did this in 2017 with certain EPs, such as Setting Sun, Block Rockin' Beats, Elektrobank, Where Do I Begin, and Galvanize more recently.

It also seems these remastered music videos is not just Chemical Brothers, but Universal Music Group is going all out with a bunch of artists and will be swapping out a ton of music videos with newer copies over time. It seems the Chems used this moment as part of their Flashback Friday. I know another major electronic whose music videos will be a part of this. :)
