Re: and...Disco 5!!!!

Hope it won't be just a compilation of tracks available on singles like Disco 4 was (which is the only Disco album I did not buy — precisely because of that).

Re: Video Remasters

Unless they have lost the original film rolls from their videos or they have been badly conserved, I think all of them could be remastered The most funny part would be the CGI videos from the Very era. Guess they would have to dig out the original 3D project files from Mr HG's vaults and re-render ...

Re: Video Remasters

I don't think many of those videos, particularly from before the 00s, would have been shot with cameras capable to record 4K. Any improvements one mighty notice as a result of such "remastering", particularly where the videos were shot on simple VHS, will be just computer-generated visual details no...

Interesting if they decided to stop doing it and all promo material distributes digitally. This would be very sad as it was great part of PSB catalogue.
Well, the catalogue is now digital. Welcome to 2020.

They're just doing their job, and not the most exciting part of it.

Re: Pet Shop Boys Tribute (Melbourne, 24 Jan)

Wow, sounds interesting. Depending on the details I might even consider flying there across the Tasman.

Re: Hotspot Limited Edition

I think if these were initially intended to be limited in number they would have stated this upfront to begin with. They clearly underestimated demand, so needed to close the offer while actually signing them was still achievable. The email I got from Universal Music Operations Ltd on 12 Dec 2019 s...

Re: Hotspot Limited Edition

"Due to unprecedented demand, the complimentary limited edition print of the "Hotspot" artwork, hand-signed by PSB, is now sold out. Thanks to everyone who has pre-ordered a copy of the new album so far. " This makes me wonder if they have already signed the prints a little while ago. Nah, more lik...

Re: Questions for Neil

Why have you stopped releasing music videos that are worth watching when there's millions of people watching on youtube and sharing them on social media et al.? Haven't they talked about that a few times before? Proper music videos require proper budgets, and they're not making that much money off ...

I expect at least 5k, honestly.
I wouldn't expect Chris and Neil to commit to signing thousands of prints.

Re: Decide (Burning the Heather b-side)

If you put aside the Brexit angle, the lyrics also work very well for a couple ending their relationship. Should we fight for it or not? What have we done? Fight for love! Exactly. I may understand UK people seeing Brexit innuendos fuming out of every pot, but for the rest of the world Decide is ju...

Re: Decide (Burning the Heather b-side)

Interestingly, the song title, "Decide", is not part of the lyrics. Rather rare phenomenon for PSB.

Re: Hotspot Limited Edition

I’ve never seen the point in instrumental versions of songs. If a track is an instrumental originally then cool but if a track is a song with vocals then what’s the point in the instrumental? I never listen to the Elysium instrumentals. I mean if you want to listen to the album, why would you choos...
