PSB in Rolling Stone's best 500 albums of all time

A terrible list altogether though. Too much Bob Dylan and Neil Young and there's probably too much Nirvana in it too. [edit] yup, too much Nirvana.

Well done Dog for being the top PSB nerd!! I’m pleased with my 2nd place. Like you, I’ve never heard the yo-yo story - most of the others I got wrong rang a bell once the answers were provided

Re: Remixes you think are better than the original version

I'm usually not fond of remixes, but the Moby remix of Miserablism is something special. As a Moby track, not a PSB track. And the PSB Remix of Hello Spaceboy remains one of my favourite tracks.

Re: Pet Shop Boys to create music for My Beautiful Laundrette stage adaptation

The image quality is ace though. And again, I've seen enough stage plays online due to COVID-19 to know this is common too.
