Re: It Couldn't Happen Here - Review 1988

It has only been released on VHS and laserdisc. I question your Youtube searching ability if you can't find it. It's the first result if you search the words "pet shop boys it couldn't happen here" in the site. Lovely to see competitions winners from the second page of the review here. I think they...

Re: Pet Shop Boys to create music for My Beautiful Laundrette stage adaptation

Guys, this won’t be released as a Pet Shop Boys record. Hence all the references to Tennant/Lowe. This will be their next Tennant/Lowe release following Battleship Potemkin and TMIT. The artwork says ‘composers Tennant/Lowe’, the official production credits list Tennant/Lowe and the article is head...

Re: The New Album Info Thread

I wonder if they've settled on the title yet and has Farrow been summoned..? Assuming they are only sending Kobalt the finished mixes to listen to.. Why would they only be sending Kobalt the finished mixes ‘to listen to’?? Kobalt are not a record company. PSB do not require Kobalt’s approval to rel...

Re: PSB at Glastonbury !

I was watching it and almost spilt my drink. When I heard those Paninaro drums!!! Great performance. I don't think Neil's earbud was working at first, that's why he sounds a bit off. How good was Neil on human! Lovely surprise! Yeah I was watching with my wife and I had literally just said to her ‘...

Re: PSB at Glastonbury !

The Killers are my next fave band after PSB so when the sampled drums from Paninaro started I was kind of like ‘oh, that sounds like Paninaro’ then a vocoder came in and then I thought OMFG it can’t be!! It was!!! Absolutely stunning set. I don’t think I’ve ever seen/heard a more perfect Glastonbury...

Re: Cabaret: Saturday 29 on Radio 2

It started off with Francis Barber's version of "Friendly Fire". The song will feature in Muzik too. There's a disco song in it, a talk song at the end looking toward the future. Neil is thinking about putting the songs out at one time. There's talking about a return of the Turing show. Hyde park c...

MCMLXXXIX - 30 Years

Yesterday marked the 30th anniversary of my very first concert - Pet Shop Boys on tour MCMLXXXIX at Wembley Arena, London. June 19th 1989. The absolute best day of my life at the time. I was 17 years old. I wonder if we’ll ever get a proper release on DVD of this fantastic concert. If it’s not relea...

Re: Pet Shop Boys - Hyde Park Sep 15th 2019

They need to do a greatest hits set though. Every year, the headline act (and the supports) mainly play just the hits. That’s what people want to hear. It’s not a PSB audience it’s a festival crowd and they’ll be bored shitless if they just come on and play Fluorescent, The Dictator Decides, Inner S...

Re: 1988 photo

There’s nothing to read in all this. Lots of websites for artists do this when there is a lot of down time between projects. Or maybe SP is already mixing the album and they're just waiting... Well, yeah, that’s the sort of thing I mean. They’re just biding their time. It doesn’t mean anything is h...

What Have I Done To Deserve This - Demo snippet?

On the 3rd part of the recent Radio 2 documentary series ‘Definitively Dusty’ it sounds like what could possibly be a snippet of the original demo with Alee Willis on vocals? Might be wrong but I’ve not heard that before:-

Re: BBC4 Top of the Pops Repeats

‘Rent’ is on next Friday’s episode which is the 22nd October 1987 edition. Quite a different performance for the boys and for me this was the first arrival of Neil’s short hair!!

Re: New Literally

closer to Yes. oh no :( I want 10 tracks in the vein of "Dictator" and "Inside a dream", honestly. Something ominous yet melodic. Set in the nightclub, but make it smart. It's surely going to be something they haven't explored/done yet, so wishing for this is a bit..wishful? :P I constantly have it...
