I really enjoyed that. It’s probably the closest I’ll get to seeing the real thing. I had no idea that Gordon Warnecke was playing Omar’s father! That was such a great idea.
I had a lovely chat with him at a special screening of the original film. Nice guy.

Re: Truck driver and his mate promo *NSFW*

I have too much ”stuff” and the trap is that you always think the next bit will make you happy. Nice to have for the completist or avid collector though.

...but they don't really have any 'roots' in that underground live scene..performance at the Fridge in 1984, any others?
The brilliant thing is that they are supporting this scene, they are not laying claim to bring a big part of it!

Stonewall? Wasn't that this seedy dive where people went cruising? Why would the boys wanna be associated with that?
The concert was held at the Royal Albert Hall - the complete opposite of a seedy dive in my book!

Fancy's performances of PSB hits are almost better than the real thing.

Re: Smithsonian presents: Project Pride feat. PSB

It was worth staying up till 3am for the premiere of this great new version. I cracked open a single beer at 2am after a non-drinking Sunday. I enjoyed most of the preceeding performances and cultural essays too from 1am. The Boys kept their cool for this but in their own way were wishing us a happy...

Sorry, what makes you say there will be no more singles? Can you back this up with proof?
Sandy Shaw is finalising the affidavit at this very moment.
Very good!

The no further singles from Hotspot was according to Neil in person.

Re: Name the next Pet Shop Boys album

A somewhat silly idea for an eventual Alternative 3: Onus. I was noting how many "B-sides" there have been since Format was released 8 years ago and was thinking that "Bonus" would be a good, concise title for the next collection. But I put a PSB twist on it (a la Concert/Concrete) and came up with...

Wonderful song. I realised that (for me at least) there are faint echos of Song for Guy (one of the chord changes in particular).
Sorry double post.

Re: It couldn't happen here soundtrack album

I worked in Our Price when this was released and we had one in our store but I still didn't go for it despite being a fan! I joined Our Price in 1994 and I found a copy of Instore Discography in the "lost" section out the back. It mysteriously went missing :lol: Well they were promotional items! I ...

It was nice to see Neil and Chris in the audience for the 4 o'clock show today a really very funny one woman show thank you Frances for bringing Billie Trix to life. Frances Barber was even more brilliant than ever (if that is possible) for the last performance. She garnered rounds of applause for ...
