Re: Annually is available to pre order

One thing they could do with "Muzik" is reissue/remaster Closer To Heaven and add Muzik as a bonus disc. And then do a 4 CD set of the PSB versions I genuinely love this idea. I'd like the full version of "My night" with the dialogue too. Pet Shop Boys Theatre could be quite a box set! Closer to He...

Re: Annually is available to pre order

Just to clarify for anyone who didn't get to see the play, it was not a musical and none of the cast sang. The instrumentals are excellent and were played at various points during the play. One of them has elements from the Electric Tour version of "I get excited (you get excited too)". Various clas...

Re: Further Listening 2011-2012 missing tracks

“A certain “Je ne sais quoi”” is on the Fundamental Further Listening disc as it was recorded in 2007. This is one of the rules of the Catalogue range; songs are included according to when they were recorded, not when they were released.

Re: Back catalogue countdown to Hotspot

“A face like that” is also fantastic, although it goes against the grain of the album. I wonder what Price would have made of this if they’d kept it back for Electric We got a hint of what Price might have done with this track on the Electric tour of course. I really like that version, but it would...

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

I love the sleeve. I feel like I’ve seen that picture before, I don’t think it’s new. Neil has more hair! I don’t think that’s Chris’s staircase.

I think the picture has been in a Literally or a Pet Text before.

Stonewall? Wasn't that this seedy dive where people went cruising? Why would the boys wanna be associated with that?
No, Stonewall is a charity for LGBTQ equality. They organised the concert.

Re: Merry Early Xmas! Stonewall Equality 1997 Show

Also, there is a recording of them doing a song called “Homosexuality” around the same time on YouTube, I think it’s from the same year (without looking it up)

Re: Merry Early Xmas! Stonewall Equality 1997 Show

Thank you for posting these! You can imagine from these recordings what it would have been like.

Are there any photos from this concert?

Re: Decide (Burning the Heather b-side)

If you put aside the Brexit angle, the lyrics also work very well for a couple ending their relationship. Should we fight for it or not? What have we done? Fight for love!

Re: Hotspot era design

I’m not sure either that the artwork particularly ties in with the title, which is crying out for a graphical treatment in the spirit of the first two parts of the trilogy. But equally I am glad they aren’t repeating themselves I too was expecting a simple graphic cover with lots of white space, if...

Hotspot era design

One of my favourite parts of a new PSB ‘era’ starting is the design aspect of it. As Petheads, we’re incredibly lucky (or maybe we just have great taste!). Neil and Chris’s collaboration with Farrow has produced some beautiful work. The Super era was very, very strong in terms of design in my opinio...

This looks good. Neil seems to be in good voice, and he’s looking great!
