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

Never thought I’d say this as a life long fan from1985, but YES. This thing is f-in SERIOUS and will not be gone by May. Hopefully it will be under control and things starting to return to normal but honestly, who wants to risk it so soon afterwards? I know, I know. It’s our Boys, but... Please guys...

Re: What does it mean to you?

Have to agree with the sentiment that it has been the soundtrack to my life; the good and the bad, the ups and downs. It has saved me, and inspired me on many an occasion, and likewise the story of how, when, why is too long to tell here. And as for a favourite; well with that catalogue, no surprise...

Re: That's My Impression - Question

That’s how I view it... over 20/25 years of bonus material. Instead of loving every track (apart from What keeps mankind alive), it’s tailed off to loving some, liking some and accepting others. But am so grateful just for the output from the boys after all these years. And Hotspot shows they still ...

Re: New single - I don't wanna

Was hoping for a miracle, literally. Did wonder if they’d choose Only the dark. The single edit would be good if revamped with a hint of Bobby O in the mix.

Re: Faces on Posters..

Like it. To be fair, it’s more artistic than a generic selfie, so in this case; thanks for posting.

Re: Past competiton winners?

Thanks ArtHist. You’ve made me realise that it’s nearly 30 years ago when it happened! 😬. No wonder it’s a bit hazy on the how; but seem to recall it being a phone in competition 🤔. Was just so shocked when won lol. Highlight after the gig was Chris coming straight up to me (bypassing other fans etc...

Re: Past competiton winners?

Hi. I was the BBC Radio 1 ‘Performance’ tour winner. 2 front row tickets and a meet & great. Ended up back at the hotel with the boys, and then hanging out with Chris and Pete Andreas. Still seems very surreal but a great claim to fame.

Re: Forthcoming PSB TV and radio appearances...

These radio promos are great. Takes me back to the good old days. Both Neil and Chris on top form, but that gaydio interview really shows their characters and humour, especially Chris on “Pet Shop Boys on Pet Shop Boys” feature; “Oh God”, “Dunno” and... “Not a fan” 🤣

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

He seems pleased to hear about our reviews which is nice. Wonder if it’ll get played again in full on radio one? If not heard it btw then you need to find it on bbc sounds. It’s bloody brilliant!!

Re: Neil and Chris signing Hotspot prints

Great spot. Need that carpet for my office lol

The prints may actually be 2 sizes; 12” for the LP and A4 for the CD (thinking of how packaged).

Actually, it’s a clever way of promoting the mix whilst removing any potential stigma or bias of who it is. Great mix. Loving this track the more I hear it!

BBC R1 have just played a snippet of the FriendWithin remix of Monkey Business on MistaJam show. Like it.

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

After at first defiantly not liking it, I’ve heard Monkey Business in a club setting and OMG. What. A. Track. Completely get it now!

Still stand by the let’s move on from SP though. Be interesting to try Kölsch, Cristoph, Krystal Klear or Mella Dee for a proper electronic dance vibe.

Heads up that Neil & Chris will be on Graham Norton’s BBC Radio 2 show on Saturday 25th January to discuss Hotspot.
