Re: Pet Shop Boys remix Paul Weller

If memory serves, and it was a long, long time ago, the boys played Long Hot Summer during one of their Simon Bates stand-ins. Controversially, I think Paul Weller did his best work in The Style Council. Not controversial at all - well, not in this house anyway! I’ve always thought The Style Counci...

Re: Sophie Ellis Bextor - It’s a Sin

Jeez...I apologise wholeheartedly for mis-leading you in my post by calling it a cover. I’m so sorry.

Just for you, I shall re-edit it to read ‘karaoke’ instead, ok! Hope that makes you feel less...let down?

PSB Vinyl: A Question

Hi guys, I’m thinking of re-purchasing PSB albums on vinyl, having recently got back into vinyl. My vinyl LP’s were in the loft and are slightly cold damaged / water stained :( but just wanted to know if anybody can answer, do the current pressings of PSB albums come with their original inner pictur...

Re: DREAMWORLD Greatest Hits Tour RESCHEDULED until 2021

I think this is a lovely idea: a "Besides" online tour. Who knows if it's the sort of thing they'd want to spend time on right now, but would be great if they could plan a small number of streamed performances of B-sides and deeper album cuts. Perhaps they could program arrangements thems...

Re: DREAMWORLD Greatest Hits Tour RESCHEDULED until 2021

:lol: On a serious note, I think now is the time for them to start thinking about some kind of live stream. A performance of their/our favourite b-sides, the sort of thing that would be commercially unsuccessful, but we as fans would love. And what a way to compliment the greatest hits tour as thes...

Re: DREAMWORLD Greatest Hits Tour RESCHEDULED until 2021

I guess they could not start the preparations due to the lock down/risks of infections. Will use the discovery DVD as a pain killer in april :-) Yeah, agreed. I think this is the reason why PSB are digging into their live catalogue, to bridge the gap. As we now have 15 months to wait again, hopeful...

Re: Time to get ready for "Annually 2021"...

In some ways, I prefer Literallys when there IS nothing to talk about. I really find some of the reportage around, say, the staging of a show or a new musical a little tedious and out of date by the time it arrives. I prefer when they have little to report and so we get more articles about things w...

Hmmm, is there actually anything to write about in the next issue? I mean nothing has happened. Maybe we’ll get a feature of Neil pottering around his garden showing off all his new plants 🤔

Re: Discovery 1994 - DVD/CD-Release

Would there be much on a prospective release of MCMLXXXIX that hasn't been uploaded to Youtube (someone has posted lots of songs from Wembley in decent quality on there)? They’re not decent at all. Far from it. And even if they were, watching individual videos on YouTube on your little phone is har...

Re: Discovery 1994 - DVD/CD-Release

To be honest I think they’ve already upscaled/cleaned up MCMLXXXIX concert anyway - take a look at the A Life In Pop DVD - there are several excerpts from MCMLXXXIX in that documentary that weren’t released on HIGHLIGHTS and they look amazing. Upscaled to 16:9 and look quite filmic/grainy. I’m sure...

Re: Hotspot: 1 year old today

I played Hotspot last week for the first time since October - it’s still hit and miss for me. Some absolute gems like Happy People, Will o’ the wisp, easily listenable stuff like Monkey business and you are the one. Too many misses like Dreamland, only the dark and far and away the worst PSB album ...

Re: Hotspot: 1 year old today

Take out Wedding and replace it with Decide and you have a fairly strong late era PSB lp. I'm very much ready for a new producer however. Yeah I agree, definitely time for a new producer. Would love them to return to Stephen Hague but I guess that’ll never happen. But I’d love them to return to tha...
