For completists, Swagger got to #54, Beatsongs to #33, and Life Model to 

As far as I know the new album is only available via Pledgemusic and at 
gigs, so sales won’t count.

Subject: [BluePlanes] The Boy In The Bubble - a hit?
Been trying to track down a chart position for 'Boy In The Bubble' for a
piece I'm doing.

Has anyone got a definite chart position for the single? My recollection 
that it made the top 40 whilst the booklet with the Beatsongs reissue says
it made "the Top 50".

Yet the Official Charts website has no chart position for any post Loved
E.P. singles.

I was wondering if a change in chart provider circa 1992 may account for
this. Although more likely it's just my memory!

Any thoughts?
