Re: Pet Shop Boys Performance Tour

Wow what a great thread to revisit. I too saw Performance when I was 18 — it was the first night of the US show in Miami, the one that got infamously cancelled due to technical issues. I went back to read my synopsis of my experience from my dedicated fan page . It was also the first night I met the...

Re: the most embarassing PSb song is...

This has been an entertaining thread to read for sure. The only PSB track I think I can say I actually detest and find terribly embarrassing is "What Keeps Mankind Alive"...Neil's voice in particular sounds awful. I do agree that New York city boy is definitely super embarrassing...I remember in 199...

Re: "he came by to look at my synthesizer"

First off... this is great footage. Second.... the coy grin on Chris' face when Neil said "he came by to look at my synthesizer" is telling, I'm sorry. Not to be crass, but.... yeah he did! https://youtu.be/jcKSIb9vhCA?t=2m42s jcKSIb9vhCA WOW, never seen that interview before...how damn ADORABLE is...

Re: Why do people hate “Before”?

I adore Neil's higher octaves and range — not only on Before but particularly on tracks like Some Speculation, Closer to Heaven, and Nightlife. Totally unique, totally Neil, and completely PSB. I think it adds such a lovely airiness to their tracks.

This is excellent. Well thought out and put together. I can appreciate the time and effort that must have gone into this. Take a bow, Sir..! Roll on volume 3..? Truly appreciate your words!

Re: Encomium II is unleashed.

Jealousy (Julian Mendelsohn Extended mix) Is this is slightly different to the extended mix by David Jacob and Pet Shop Boys or are my ears deceiving me? Holy crap I think it was my MEMORY that was deceiving me!!! You are totally right, it is David Jacob and not Julian! Good catch. Will revise that...

Re: Encomium II is unleashed.

Superb work Remark. Excellent choice of songs and the transitions work a treat. Will have another listen tonight at work if I can get a signal 😳 is there a way to add mixcloud tracks to iTunes so I can listen offline. Thanks again 👌⚔️ Thank you so much! Really appreciate your feedback. I'll hit you...

Brilliant. Your mix makes my day at work so much better.
Thanks a lot, Remark!
You're very welcome! And if you listen to both part 1 AND 2, it almost fills an entire workday! :clap: Nothing like PSB to make the day go by faster!

Re: Encomium II is unleashed.

Wow - some excellent work there. Superb key matching and programming of tunes. Thank you so much Debussy! It definitely was one of the most ambitious mixes I've ever worked on...especially given I was using tracks from 1986 up through to today. Definitely a challenge but I must say I'm rather pleas...
