Re: Remaking the albums: Please

Greetings, The only change I would make is to replace the album version of Suburbia with either the Video Mix or 7" mix... they themselves admit that the album version of Suburbia is a bit demo-ish and under done, and only really came into its own once it was mixed and remixed for single release.

Re: Pet Shop Boys in Poland?

Greetings,

It would appear very difficult to book anything far in advance in the current climate.

I think it's far more likely over the next couple of years that gigs will appear sporadically and with less lead time.

I hope that takes PSB to Warsaw for you.

Retro. :)

Neil could have used better words to say the same thing.
Why, when you'd mishear them and come to this conclusion?

Re: Richard X on working with PSB and others

I reckon the "you are my brother" lyric replaced "suicide bomber".

Re: Left to my own Devices vs Being Boring

Both are in my top 5. Hard to vote, seeing two such great, yet radically different tracks juxtaposed against each other.

I guess that's the point of the poll!

Re: Best version of Discography

Greetings, Agreed. Loved the classic extended remixes during this time period and Can you forgive her? is still one of my least favorite remixes packages ever by PSB. Truly disappointing. It was disappointing mainly from the perspective that this was the first time you couldn't say there was a genui...

Re: It Couldn’t Happen Here June 2020 Release Confirmed

Greetings,

Very strangely... Zaavi suddenly think they've dispatched the pre-order of the original deluxe version they were initially unable to fulfil.

Unsure exactly what's going on here...

Question about the b-side of the Ab Fab 7"

Greetings, According to both Discogs and the Pet Shop Boys Catalogue website, the 7" single of Absolutely Fabulous has the full 8 minute, 10 second version of "Absolutely Fabulous (Dull Soulless Dance Music Mix)". I've never heard of one side of a 7" single having over 8 minutes of music, so I was a...

Re: That Crossover Moment.....

The first thing I heard was Always On My Mind, and I absolutely loved it.
Then I heard Heart and was a bit meh.
Domino Dancing seemingly skipped me by, but when I heard Left To My Own Devices, I was hooked for life - age 10.

Mole,

This just means that the recipient has not picked them up yet. Presumably the recipient is no longer active on the forum.

Re: PSB vinyl art

Greetings Kenny, That said I am always considering new pieces made from PSB 7” records so if any of this great community has any ideas I would love to hear from you. On that note, if you did an ECG Heart one, I'd be keen to see how it turned out. ( Not a potential customer / just a curious PSB fan )...

Re: Next single? (Will there be one?)

There won't be another from Hotspot, but if there is, it should be what the 4th single should have been... Will O' The Wisp.

Re: It Couldn’t Happen Here June 2020 Release Confirmed

Greetings,

I've put in another order with another store... so depending on how this plays out, I might end up with 0, 1 or 2 copies.

What a debacle.

(If by some bizarre and unlikely circumstance I end up with 2 copies, I'll be reselling one at cost price)

Re: Final results of rating "Laundrette" songs and "New Boy"

Greetings,

Yes. But on Discogs? (That's where I've documented mine - in Discogs you can separately list "inventory" and "items I own")
