Re: Do you think PSB should postpone the DREAMWORLD tour because of covid-19?

No. Go to the shops, work in an office environment, have a hospital appointment, or simply walk down the street you are potentially exposed. Short of locking yourself away for the next six months until they find a cure and putting life on hold then . BBC puts the chances at 1% of people catching it ...

Re: Where the streets have no love ...

At the risk of putting in a minority report one of just three PSB tracks (along with To step aside and Thursday) that I actively loathe. Not subtle, totally overblown and struck of desparation when a double A side with HCYETBTS on an album not blessed with many obvious singles.

Re: New Pet Shop Order Boys

They've effectively toured together before in 2009 when Bad Lieutenant supported PSB, just Gilliam Gilbert missing and Hooky had long gone. They did a few Bad Lieutenant numbers then a slew of Joy Division and New Order stuff. The hipsters of course stopped in the foyer too cool to watch the support...

Re: Annually is available to pre order

Ordered instantly, and so pleased it's not Musik. I'm sure Neil's Musik demos will appear in a further "Further Listening", not interested with Frances Barber singing, effectively its a side project like Dusty or Lisa in my book without Neil (or Chris) taking the lead vocal and I'm just not that bot...

Re: You Are The One - Birds

Wow. It's very true, and it's a real shame they were taken out because for me it was a highlight of the song. So much so, I mentioned it in my initial review of the album. To be honest, I hadn't noticed until now, as I didn't bother listening to CD1 and went straight to the instrumentals. Hearing t...

Re: Can you make Hotspot better?

With regard to your first statement; I could not disagree more. The most perfect album since “Very” is in my humble opinion “Yes” However, if one is to keep the current track listing as is I would definitely agree that the order of tracks selection was very well thought out and does the album justi...

Re: Can you make Hotspot better?

No. It's their most perfect album since Very. The order of track selection has obviously been well considered. The fast-slow-fast pacing forms a most pleasing journey, almost like a mega-version of the best dance tracks which feature 'drops' and build to crescendos. I wouldn't change a thing. With ...

Re: You Are The One - Birds

Has anyone heard this preview version with sampled speech at the end as noted on Geowayne today? On at least some (possibly all) preview copies of Hotspot distributed to journalists, a brief sampled snippet of a young woman saying "I'd like to meet you" occurs near the end of "You Are the One." It s...

Re: "It Couldn't Happen Here" on DVD

If you can't touch it, I ain't buyin' it.... This. Kids today miss out so much by download and streaming culture, listening through tinny headphones to music via a mobile phone, watching clips on a miniature screen. Half the pleasure of being a teenager was that Saturday morning trip to the music s...

Re: 3rd single "Monkey Business" (Jan 2020)

At last, remixes that add something to the song after years of DJ Ego Trips. The Prins Thomas mix is fabulous in particular, and that House piano really adds a lot. Do I detect a sample from the unreleased 'Big Piano'? The b-side is definitely a b-side, bur very well done, and as the best Tennant yo...

Re: Musik - Cabaret and EP

Any indication of Musik ever being issued on CD or vinyl? I'd LOVE it. Apparently there will be a physical release... a forum member asked Neil on opening night. Likelihood that this will be the free CD with the 2020 Annually? That or Burning the heather given no CD release...so far. God I detest d...
