Re: That Crossover Moment.....

I was hooked from the first listen to West End Girls though I only really bought the albums and the odd 12”. So unbelievably I was unaware of many delights until Alternative came out. I’ve pretty much bought everything that has something different to the albums since then. I know many people have fa...

Re: What would you think a future PSB's album should sound like in order to reinvent themselves?

[/quote] For me, the ballet has been one of the most wonderful thing PSB has done over the years. So I like when they make additional projects, no problem with that. Talking about proper studio albums. Ok, you love the depressing lyrics about getting older and all this stuff. But I'm not talking abo...

Re: It Couldn’t Happen Here June 2020 Release Confirmed

Mine arrived yesterday. Lovely presentation. It would have been worth it just for the photo of Chris smiling 😊 I’m waiting for a time to watch it alone. I’m not having other people around interfering with its craziness.

Whatever you think of the album the intro with Discoteca merging into Bilingual is sheer genius. Flawless is a good description

Re: Just listened to Relentless - it's not very good

Yes it is bleak and I love it for that. It also doesn’t need lyrics other than those few that are there. Much as I love Euroboy and Speculation they would ruin the unique quality of Relentless. I was totally in awe of Relentless when it came out because it was so different to anything I had or that ...

Re: There's still hope for Neil

For some reason I find that music video very difficult to watch. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LcouA_oWsnU I've never heard of Captain Tom Moore, but there's clearly someone else signing in the song so I don't know what involvement the man has. Also it's a bit insulting to compared this 100 year ...

Re: Hey, Super - that's a really good album

I can't help but fear the period that comes after. I fear that they will slip again without Stuart's input. Since I've heard that "Burning the heather" was meant for the next album, I feel like another "Release/Elysium" nadir is coming. Excellent. Release and Elysium are two of my favourite albums 😊

Re: Annually 2020 + Free CD

I’m intrigued by what they wrote about Wallish Walls. I wonder if the name of the place fascinated Neil just as much as it did me! Very small road in Northumberland.

Re: Pound Shop Boys - Coronation Street

These internal british/english references and, supposedly, jokes are what really drags this forum down. Sooo boring. It’s terribly English isn’t it, well isn’t it? Strange that. Considering PSB are the most quintessential English band you could get. Oh wait...you didn’t like any Scottish related po...

Re: That's My Impression - Question

Apart from the odd extended 12 inch versions I had already given up buying 45s by the mid 80s so That’s My Impression and pretty much the whole Alternative album was a mind blowing massive bonus to me when it was released. I couldn’t believe there was a whole alternative world of Pet Shop Boys that ...

Re: What does it mean to you?

Being in the category of the soundtrack to my life could be an invitation to bore the pants off people so I’ll keep it short. The first song that slapped me in the face was Love Comes Quickly. It gave me hope when I badly needed it and they were right. Eventually there was a Metamorphosis 😉. The lin...

Re: Faces on Posters..

I can understand why you feel you want to step back for a while. I’ve been there myself in other ways. But. It’s clear that most people liked what you did and are desperate to find a poster to do our own photo 😊. Don’t let that one person spoil the fun.
