Re: September single...???

After two listens. Pros - Very strong chorus - Sleeve design (apart from on iTunes!) - The lyric video Cons - I hate it when Neil's voice does that straining thing when he sings too high, like "far away" twenty seconds in - Some of the lyrics are dreck: Dreamland is a free land Kiss me, hold me, tak...

Never judge a book by its cover and all that ... but not keen on that shot of Neil. I think from the Jealousy single era - washed out and unflattering. So many better options to have used instead.
I think that was the point.

Re: Piano Solo, I want a Dog (Introspective)

Hello, I don't know if this has ever been answered. If so then I apologise. The piano solo durning I want a dog is something very special indeed. Do we know if it was Chris that came up with and recorded it himself? Any info would be great! (From memory) according to the sleeve credits it’s Josh Mi...

Isn't this a TB-03 instead of a TB-303?
No. The back of the TB-03 is quite different and features two MIDI ports, for example. See https://www.roland.com/us/products/tb-03/

True, but all of my points still stand. Create a website that follows web standards and it’ll work on any device.

Re: PSB cameo appearance on the new The Divine Comedy's album.

Really not worth posting here that someone with zero cultural relevance happened to utter the words "Pet Shop Boys" in the context of naming 22 popular artists from the 80's. Oh dear! Perhaps you could furnish us with the list of approved forum topics? I was glad that the information was posted. Di...

Re: Grenfell Tower tweet

I think the music could be them, the synth chords sound like them. I don’t think they’d use something like this to debut new music though. Unless it was a special commission just for this video. I don’t think it’s odd that Neil’s tweeting about it. I assume Neil’s behind it. He quite often tweets po...

From the Edinburgh News piece: "...and for a period in the Nineties no one was cooler than Ciciero."

That's a lie.
They played at The Roundhouse earlier this year.
That wasn't for the hoi polloi though.

Re: 2021- 40 years of Pet Shop Boys

It would be nice to hear the Behaviour demos because I don't think they've ever surfaced. The whole "not of master quality" argument is a bit spurious, as by definition they're not of master quality because they're demos! Unless they're really, really lo-fi, but I can't imagine they'd be any worse t...

I’d much rather do something like this than go to a gig, to be honest. I must be getting old.
This is the future of Pet Shop Boys’ live performances. Neil gives a talk, while Chris stays at home.
