Re: FULL European "Electric 2014" Tour Dates...

I want to book for Birmingham but I'm not sure what would actually be good seats based on the seating plan on the booking page? Is that the actual configuration for the night? None of those offered seem great. What have people gone for??

Re: Reputation/PSB tinkering

The track they tinkered with was Arrested By You. It had a sax solo which they thought was awful so they replaced it with Neil playing an oboe line on the synth. They talked about this in the Literally following Dusty's death. Andy Richards produced the title track hence it sounding quite PSB.

Re: The EGO of Brian Higgins

Well I found the interview fascinating and what he said about Neil and Chris as people was really lovely.

I got mine at 1.30. You have to buy the album to get a bracelet. I've got a spare if anyone needs it.

Re: iTunes Pet Shop Boys

It's nice they're advertising PopArt on the main page too. Shame it's the wrong price when you click on the link!

Fantastic review in the new issue of Attitude, if it hasn't been mentioned already.

I disagree with a lot of the above criticism of Jonathan Harvey. I don't think he said he didn't think it was a good piece of work; he said it was one of his worst experiences making it, which is totally different. Neil and Chris have backed this up. I also disagree with the comments about Coronatio...

John Barry is a God. A collaboration with Neil and Chris would have been very interesting.

a-ha are still making great records. I think PSB listed a single off their last album as a favourite of theirs at the time. Saw them live a couple of years ago and they were brilliant. Morten still has a stunning voice; very underrated.

I never did track down a live recording of this, even though it was supposedly recorded by the DJ on the night.
I loved that version.

Indeed it was a great gig. I was lucky enough to bump into Neil and Chris when I went to the bar; they were just arriving.

Well I have a ticket and was going to drive down tonight but the flooding and delays is putting me off. The forecast for Eden tomorrow is not great either :(

Any word from the peeps from the London gig?
I'm not talking to them; they got Being Boring even though we were the loudest crowd on the whole tour...
