Re: Hotspot reviews

^^^ Dreamland a standout? Eurgh. Well I take heart in that line ... I imagine the reviewer has given the album a cursory listen, was familiar with Dreamland as he heard It in the background somewhere and wrote it down on a piece of paper ... I suspect the real gems on the album will take time to un...

Where can I buy one of these here in Berlin? Anyone know? Thanks in advance!
It's a German publication ... therefore the obvious route is to ask our dear friend Oakey to order one for you and then he can ship it to you in Berlin.

Re: Hotspot era design

Does anyone know the name of the font that is being used for the Hotspot era artwork and is it available to download anywhere..? It’s part of the DIN typeface. Can’t remember if it was a standard on my Mac or if I picked up my version from work, but shouldn’t be too difficult to find a version onli...

DREAMWORLD TOUR

Wondering if there is a chance of a surprise cover during this tour ... a bit like the Viva la Vida cover they dropped back in the day.

What do you reckon?

Re: Hotspot Japanese bonus tracks?

“Piles of toast and broken promises / Among the books and pens and reading glasses” One of my favourite lines from the PSB. So evocative and beautifully composed. There are some tracks that I will never get bored of hearing and The End of the World is right up there on that list. A quintessential al...

Re: funko Pops

Funny this My youngest kid has recently got an addiction for these While googling on his behalf for various Star Wars bobble heads over Xmas I did do a quick check for Pet Shop Boys also but no luck I’d be first in line to buy if they did ... I’d think heads from the Suburbia timeframe would be awes...

Re: Hotspot reviews

“Hotspot is one of the downright oddest albums Pet Shop Boys have ever made, and all the better for it.”

If that closing line of the review rings true maybe we’ll end up calling this album Oddspot instead [emoji2957]

Re: 3rd single "Monkey Business" (Jan 2020)

No monkey business for me for a short while

I’ve had plenty of opportunity to hear the radio edit again since first and only listen ... I am now just gonna hold out for a couple of more weeks to hear the full version and in context on the album itself

Re: Glastonbury 2020

So ... are they likely to headline the Other stage again?

I don’t know who’s playing when but I imagine Taylor Swift, Macca and Diana Ross will headline main Pyramid stage?
