Re: Albums played live

True, but we would never get an 11 minute version of BB or 10 minute full version of West End girls etc in a greatest hits show. And what's the point for us hardcore fans with a greatest hits show... that's for the proles... Not if they play So Hard, or DJ Culture, or Flamboyant, or I’m With Stupid...

Re: Albums played live

Because they've already done it. Playing a whole album hasn't been done yet. Introspective would be awesome. From the opera beginning, via latin party, Parisian revolutionary stuff to the AOMM-crescendo and then ending with the sublime ultra long original version of It's alright. It would be a jour...

Re: Albums played live

its the greatest hits tours that are boring, and not very creative to me. I don't understand why playing a wide variety of tracks from across 35 years is less creative than playing 10-12 tracks from one album. Because they've already done it. Playing a whole album hasn't been done yet. Introspectiv...

Time to get ready for "Annually 2021"...out May 7, 2021

Sorry...but what is the exact meaning of "cricket wife". I am a native spanish speaker. Thank you. I wouldn't be surprised if it was a typical Neil play on words, in this case Golf widow: "Golf widow - a wife who is left alone much of the time because her husband is playing golf"...

Re: Time to get ready for "Annually 2021"...out May 7, 2021

I'm not sure it's a single is it? It's being reported as such, but it hasn't been announced by the band. It's simply a new release. I've ordered more, for the lockdown version of West End girls if nothing else. From the official site: Annually is packaged with a brand-new, two-track single, “Cricke...

Re: Time to get ready for "Annually 2021"...

Cricket wife - last track from the Hotspot era, or first one of the next? It could even appear again on the next album.

Re: Recording of DJ Culture and Was It Worth It?

But back on topic, I also agree that it would be great to hear DJ culture or Was it worth it? live. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ZeSklYrmzs Probably from Montage tour? Sorry for double post. Yes and I did enjoy that, but I’d love to hear the single version, as performed at the Hacienda.

Re: Recording of DJ Culture and Was It Worth It?

But to play the revisionism game [emoji4]: How can you expect to be taken seriously? was for me one of the few obvious single choices from Behaviour. But the BiR remix moved the sound in an odd direction, away from single material and more towards the sound of Behaviour. If they were looking for a h...

Re: Recording of DJ Culture and Was It Worth It?

Funny that a thread about the two Discography singles has widened into a discussion around restructuring their entire output 1987-1992. I can understand us picking over, say, Hotspot single choices but I am not sure about rewriting their commercial and artistic high points: holding back albums for s...

I am sure Neil will have added the usual cheeky vocal.

Pet Shop Boys remix Paul Weller

Yes, Paul describes it as a “12 minute monster mix”.

Re: Sophie Ellis Bextor - It’s a Sin

Personally speaking, I've got to admit that it's quite possibly the most annoying cover version / video I've seen in quite some time as it's basically some highly uninterested and confused kids standing around a somewhat second class karaoke singer with a jump on the bandwagon performance. Honestly...
