Re: Two books about Pet Shop Boys

I wonder whether Neil will have time to slip in one or two of the live interviews that he has been doing. He could then bring along his lyric book and some slipcase editions! (Wishful thinking I know!!!)

Re: Lost mix tape including PSB washes up as art 25 years later!

I think that's the kind of thing that would bother Paul even with as much success as he's had. that this young girl at the time decided he was only 1 of 2 artists that didn't make the cut for the mixtape. if you noticed the discrepancy, other people will put it out there for Paul to enjoy this litt...

Re: Hotspot reviews

Greetings, As daft as the phrasing is, I take it to mean that they are regarded as musical icons within the gay community. I've heard Kylie Minogue and Madonna described in similar terms, despite them not being gay. Retro. :) Yes, Other will known ''gay icons'' are Judy Garland and Barbra Streisand...

"True or False?" Neil Jingle

Graham Norton played Neil doing a sort of mock jingle as the True or False? jingle today on Radio 2! Maybe this will be an ongoing "thing'. The original rendition was when the Boys were interviewed themselves.

Re: Your favourite Hotspot Instrumental?

I'd buy Hotspot again if it were available in STEMS. Juno Download and other digital music sellers offer the format alongside the well known formats. I'd re-buy the whole PSB catalogue in stems (not an abbreviation I guess?) if it was available. The only publicly available PSB stems I can recall we...
