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

I also sincerely wish they release a dvd for HIGHLIGHTS or the full MCMLXXXIX tour! Didn’t they already rule that out years ago? The reason was that the footage isn’t up to scratch or something like that. I recall them saying somewhere in the last few years that both ICHH and MCMLXXXIX (in full) wo...

Re: Hotspot - Forum Reactions.

Enjoy this on first couple of listens, as I do love a good PSB ballad, but oh my God 'Wedding In Berlin' might be their worst ever song - I've physically cringed both times I've played it. On that basis alone my first impressions rating of the trilogy now is 1. Super; 2. Electric; 3.Hotspot. but thi...

Re: Hotspot Limited Edition

I had exactly this issue, called the number, got an email address, emailed, was sent a secure purchase link for the CD with print, repurchased, THINK it’s sorted now. Fingers crossed. Good luck to you! As luck would have it, my two payments to the PSB store went through and were accepted yesterday ...

Re: Hotspot Limited Edition

Anyone got a telephone number for the Pet Shop Boys online store? I pre-ordered the CD and tape both with signed prints weeks ago, but got a call tonight telling me my credit card has had fraudulent activity today and has now been blocked/cancelled. Think the fraud is unrelated to the PSB store, but...

Re: Back catalogue countdown to Hotspot

I recall reading that 'Birthday Boy' was at least partly/metaphorically about the murder of Stephen Lawrence but can't remember where I read Neil saying that.

Re: Hotspot Limited Edition

Anyone ordered the cassette? I have a rarely used tape player that's still plugged into my amp. The shaded, clear plastic of the tape reminds me of the UK Actually cassette from way back in '87 - the first PSB album I bought. Love the novelty of it, but think I'd only play it once. New Order had a w...

Re: Burning the heather

OMD have started doing that again now. All 3 singles from their last album all had proper extended versions!! And of course New Order's 'Complete Music' had some fantastic classic extended mixes of all the songs on 'Music Complete', 'Academic' probably being the best. I felt the NO extended mixes o...

Re: Burning the heather

Must dig out the 12" of Don Juan too - I remember that being a decent extended mix. I really miss those extended 12" mixes of singles. Wish most bands would make them even now. If done well, the pleasure lasts that much longer... OMD have started doing that again now. All 3 singles from their last ...
