Re: I don't know what you want but I can't give it any more in Concert?

It was performed as part of the Nightlife tour - and at their first Glastonbury show.

Re: BBC4 Top of the Pops Repeats

I liked that Pet Shop Boys seemed to dominate that Story of 1987 in a subtle way - despite not bothering to appear. There they were at the start of it and there they were at the end upsetting Carol Decker and bewildering Pete Waterman. Marvelous! I think Rick Astley came across really well. Waterman...

10 for 10: Best Pet Shop Boys Tracks of the Decade

Tempus fugit. We are now in the tenth year of the fourth Pet Shop Boys decade. That, of course, got me thinking. It doesn't take much. What were my highlights since 2010? Restricting myself to the quality control guarantee of 10 tracks, I cannot find a place for marvellous moments such as Axis, Inne...

Re: Inner Sanctum - 3sat

TV broadcast isn't until tonight. I watched on the Mediathek/"red button" on TV. I expect the broadcast will be identical.

Re: Inner Sanctum - 3sat

No, it's 74 minutes of pure concert - and no intro/outro either.

There is a 3Sat DOG logo on the top left of the screen. Other than that, it's pure PSB.

Re: Inner Sanctum - 3sat

What a lovely, warm, celebratory film. There's a joyousness here, and the 75-minute edit is lovingly executed giving us a broad range of songs from across the entire catalogue. The film doesn't really do justice to the spectacular laser show that really can only be experienced live for full effect, ...

Re: BBC4 Top of the Pops Repeats

They’re pop royalty. Why would they want to be associated with that line up of mediocrities. It’s like one of those horrible 1980s nostalgia tours that pop up for the Christmas office party season.

Re: Inner Sanctum - 3sat

I think that tracklisting strikes a very good balance between representing the breadth of their career and providing the plebs with the mega hits - which is really what a show broadcast on New Year's Eve/Day should probably be doing.

Re: 2019 Pet Shop Boys News: "Inner Sanctum DVD, touring, new album"

The optical disc market is mature - I'd be pleasantly surprised if we get the show on bluray. Bluray gets squeezed on all sides. DVD quality is more than acceptable for most people, and streaming is more convenient and disposable, so bluray has always been a luxury niche than the mass market choice ...

This will be a 75-minute edit of the show:

I'll record it and stick it on Bluray.

Re: Dricography: Ranking Behaviour

5. Jealousy The fruit of their earliest successful collaboration, Jealousy is Behaviour's grand, sweeping closing gesture - and one of their superior 1990s singles. Even at their most subtle, they cannot resist going over the top, but the swelling crescendo here mirrors the psychological state of o...

Re: Dricography: Ranking Behaviour

6. DJ Culture A striking intro, a glorious middle section, and a Tennant monologue for the ages - but what the hell was he on about? Talk about oblique. This is the exact point where they lost their Midas touch, their deep understanding of what disposable pop music was all about, and yet they manag...

7. Only the wind No song on Behaviour distills the sound of the album quite so purely as this elemental vignette, a tempestuous tale the lends itself to multiple interpretations. The protagonist's state of mind is reflected in the elements, and one wonders what he's really covering up and whether t...

Re: Dricography: Ranking Behaviour

10. Miserablism A manifesto for the disaffected, I lapped this up as a teenager. Behaviour was a survival guide, and here Neil presented us with "a new approach found to the meaning of life." This song is petulant in the manner of a teenage strop, but underneath the surface it can be construed as a...
