Re: Denise Johnson died

Very sadly missed! Majorly enhanced groups like Electronic and Primal Scream, songs like Get the Message but also the one below. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OTZ9gHZCz1Q Surprised that she didn't do more with PSB, but they already have the greatness of Sylvia Mason James! https://www.youtube.com/...

That Crossover Moment.....

that you crossed over from being a casual listener of the boys to being a dyed in the wool fan? Mine was hearing Very in the fall of '93. Plain and simple. There were 6 different songs that had Top 5 singles chart written all over them. Others non-greatest hits releases like Actually and Behavior ha...

Odds that Chris/Neil read this forum?

I put @ 20%. I haven't read evidence in interviews that referenced the forum....but I still think Chris might casually check here infrequently. Neil seems like he'd be more heavily into Facebook, Instagram, etc while Chris doesn't seem like the type to care and would venture off the social media pat...

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

The iron is still hot from West End Girls being named #1 UK song ever, my vote is for a new surprise album! Hotspot was definitely a bit of a letdown for me, but it's only my opinion so doesn't really matter. But the songwriting and arrangements were a bit on the meh side. The Stuart Price era felt ...

Re: Any crazy hanging out stories with Neil/Chris?

I don't remember Chris drinking when I met him, and think that Neil had a glass of wine or something. And I definitely didn't talk music with them, as I figured it would beat them down so kept it to casual small talk. It was definitely a fortunate time to be able to hang out with them, as I don't th...

Re: Really bad experience Pet Shop Boys Shop

Wow, posting in the forum must be good luck because Annually finally arrived today (after I had posted a couple days ago). It shows PostNL as the courier with a shipment date of 4/17.....it arrived at the post office on 6/21 so over 60 days! :grumble: And of course, it arrived 6-21 but the USPS make...

Any crazy hanging out stories with Neil/Chris?

Was doing some spring cleaning the other day and ran across an old pic I had with Neil/Chris when they were in Dallas for Nightlight tour in very early 2000's. I was in upper 20's at the time and brought back memories of that crazy night after the show - does anyone else have similar stories of hang...

Re: Really bad experience Pet Shop Boys Shop

I sent an email to digital stores with my order number -their automated reply says it can take up to 10 days to reply? Very frustrated :grumble: I know part of the issue is that the US Postal Service is understaffed and majorly sucks (have had an issue with every order coming from Europe since covid...

Re: Really bad experience Pet Shop Boys Shop

Unbelievable to say this, but still haven’t received Annually yet. I live in the Midwest US. Got an email from some postal company in mid April that it shipped, but must be rotting at the post office somewhere. Their next release might come out first. So frustrating!

Re: Merry Early Xmas! Stonewall Equality 1997 Show

We periodically get b-sides albums from the boys, wish they would do the same with live stuff.

Daniel Craig singing PSB!

Not sure if anyone has seen the movie Knives Out yet, but was a nice surprise to see a scene where Daniel Craig is sitting in a car and sings a couple verses of Losing My Mind by Liza Minnelli / PSB! It took me a second to realize that the song was originally a Stephen Sondheim song, but still kinda...

Merry Early Xmas! Stonewall Equality 1997 Show

Looking forward to Hotspot next month, and wanted to provide an early Xmas present to help fill in the time gap! I'm 100% confident these tracks won't see the light of day in any type of release, as 1997 was still pre-smart phone and unlikely a high quality soundboard mix exists anywhere. Quality is...

Re: Demography actually exist?

Is the quality on the sound of music tracks (Climb every mountain, etc) any good or barely listenable?

Re: Lady Willpower - Moz channeling his inner PSB?

I respectfully disagree, it's one on the poppiest things in his catalogue compared to the usual morose dross by moz.
