Re: Lily Savage (Paul O'Grady) Pet Shop Boys rip-off single.

Yes, the rip-offs are blatant - of both Always On My Mind and It's A Sin.

Reminds me a bit of the Pound Shop Boys.

Re: It Doesn't Often Appear At Christmas

Just curious... are people hearing the original 1997 (?) fan club version or the version off the Christmas EP?

Re: It Doesn't Often Appear At Christmas

That Boris Johnson song is timely. Got to #5 with no budget, no airplay and no label. Punk lives.

Re: News: "Chris and Neil have been at their homes, writing new songs and working on music for a new theatre production"

Greetings, Yes. I'd be pleased if "A Man From The Future" is what's being referenced... in part because it's already mostly (?) done, warrants a proper "release", and wouldn't be as time consuming as a brand new project. I compare here the respective merits of Hotspot, versus, sa...

Re: Fan edits

Greetings,

The only time I've bothered to do anything like this was to create a version of The Meeting for my wedding.

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

Greetings,

If there is a CD, I think it will be the Muzik EP. Just the standard issue. Neil supposedly said that it would come out on CD, but it clearly hasn't done so yet. This would tick off that box. Neil demos might be saved for a Further Listening release.

Re: Further Listening in the future?

Greetings, I dont see them releasing a new album of new material until the pandemic is far in the rear view. I think they enjoy the dance...recording an album, releasing it and then touring. I dont see them doing another album when even if they released a new album...THAT tour would be in jeopardy j...

I stand corrected. That was indeed a good one. (I forgot that one on account of it being a remix).

Re: Future duet

Unless I'm forgetting one, they haven't done a good duet since What Have I Done To Deserve This?

Kylie - bad
Elton - bad
Robbie - meh
Example - barely a duet, more a bonus rap.
Olly - meh

This Used To Be The Future was good, but it had three vocalists rather than two.

Re: Further Listening in the future?

Greetings, It was a massive missed opportunity to not pad about the first 6 further listening CDs. It makes no sense that the first batch only have one bonus disc and then Nightlife, Release and Yes have two bonus discs. Neil made the point that they became more prolific at this point and that there...
