Re: New BBC 'imagine...' documentary on Pet Shop Boys confirmed for Spring 2024

Chris was very funny and a very telling remark that he is just not interested in their legacy, the ongoing interest is about the creative process. Honestly I'm kind of glad. There's too much backwards gazing and they are here, now, still writing and creating...why look back? Only forwards! Good for...

Re: New BBC 'imagine...' documentary on Pet Shop Boys confirmed for Spring 2024

I really enjoyed it. As well as the ''trotting'' sound on the West End girls demo the Boys trotted out several familiar stories including Dusty singing one note at a time (which I have to say one can't tell on the issued recordings!) Chris was very funny and a very telling remark that he is just not...

Re: Club show at @KOKOLondon on 26th May.

In case I'm one of the lucky ones who can get a ticket for the Koko gig in London, does anyone have any experience with this venue? I just read on TripAdvisor some recent reviews from visitors that the venue do not take the safety of visitors very seriously (no bag checks or security at the entranc...

Re: Track-by-Track: From Please to Nonetheless

Great, Rashomon! I think sometimes it's easy to forget how much of an impact the Dusty duet had. I was 15 when it came out, and I remember my parents being intrigued at the reappearance of the '60s icon on a record with the two mischievous '80s trouble-makers who had spectacularly skewed Catholicis...

I still remember hearing this at The Piccadilly Theatre as part of ''Before the Act''. at the time it was billed as the first PSB 'live' performance although this wasn't really true.
