Re: News tomorrow! (Nov 14th)

... plus a gig at the Lincoln Centre in Washington DC in early March would be very much appreciated as an addition to my birthday celebrations!

Re: News tomorrow! (Nov 14th)

I'd say Sunday Glastonbury. With a big, happy, send-them-all home triumphant set.

Plus *cough* old school Christmas single *cough*

Re: Heaven 1991: Was it worth it?

Finally got around to digging out the ‘etc.’ dub mixes and I have to say I really enjoyed them.

Kind of like a pop version of an Underworld track.

Can anyone recommend any other dub mixes from the PSB catalogue?

Re: Heaven 1991: Was it worth it?

I always understood dub as an 'alternative mix' to the original track where some bars stand for themeselves to have more power. There are often the drums being emphasized and you could also build a new version of the song around the drums (like in Was it worth it?). Cheers all - I'll dig 'etc' out....

Re: Heaven 1991: Was it worth it?

I feel as though I waited all my PSB life to ask this question. What exactly is the definition of a ‘dub’ mix? I have always thought it was a modern (80’s) way of saying ‘instrumental’ and as a rule I’ve tried to avoid them. Personally I prefer it when the track “has a vocal”. Perhaps people could ...

Re: The New Album Info Thread

If it doesn't come with a poll, it doesn't exist. Drico. It's true. The only one song from the new album you'll listen in the Dreamland Tour is Dreamland (because that's the title of the tour), the rest of it will be hits. In fact, the new album won't have a commercial sound but they have plans for...

Re: Pet Shop Boys - Hyde Park Sep 15th 2019

NO, they need to release the version of What have I done to deserve this? from Performance. with the amazing breakdown at the end. It's the best version they have ever done. And would have worked brilliantly in Hyde Park https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3ZoNKMIHbHk Was there any part of Performance ...

Re: 2 albums?

Do greatest hits albums still exist? Are we talking about physical CD’s sold in supermarkets? Isn’t a ‘greatest hits’ tour almost a marketing exercise in selling tickets (most likely for a series of headline festival shows - Glastonbury perhaps?). A greatest hits show would be a massive draw for neu...

Re: The best cultural thing PSB have ever done?

Either the Performance show or the Savoy show - specifically the two accompanying films by Sam Taylor Wood. Loved how they kept stepping in and out of them.

Re: PSB at Glastonbury !

I was yelling at the TV for ‘Getting Away with It’, but then remembered they were all on stage at the Royal Albert Hall and they didn’t do it then either.

My wife’s favourite band and my fav band playing together on the weekend of our wedding anniversary. Nice touch boys!
