Re: Pet Shop Boys in Helsinki (Flow Festival 15 August 2015)

Most artists today still have a mainstream album CD, a premium album CD and then a download version of the album that could be any combination? My guess is Neil was summarising and they still don't know which tracks will end up on the CD, on B-sides and in the bin. It's very easy to over-analyse the...

Re: PSB DVD RIP?

PSB's fan base like those for many other groups don't want to pay for music or content any more - the YouTube era expect it all for nothing. That's the "official" reason why there wasn't an Electric tour DVD.

Re: I saw Neil this evening

Neil and Janet - a couple? Neil "preferring" older ladies? The irony.

Re: Reissues project

There's something not quite right about that laptop photo - the source of the reflection of the hand taking the photo doesn't appear in the blurred image.

Re: "Electric" = "Introspective 2", new album = "Very 2"?

Because they rare give updates about the actual progress of recording. It always goes quiet for a few months, then the release wheels start turning at full speed.

I'd suggest they're a lot further forward than we'd imagine by now, just saying.

First album from the Twins

There's been weaker PSB related posts in this section so I don't feel too shameful..... The Twins from fairly recent PSB shows, Polly and Sophie, have just released their first album produced by Pete Gleadall who also performed on a few tracks. In my opinion, it's good. All the hallmarks of good pro...

Re: The NEW album - views and expectations

It's been two months since a personal Pet Text now. My gut feel is the new album is almost all written now and after Easter production updates will start appearing......

Re: Only the wind (Nightlife live version)

The Nightlife tour tracks had some serious re-work done for the 1998/1999/2000 era of the superstar-DJ yet they went further and took a futuristic look and sound to the stage. It was a time when dance/electronic music was what the masses were listening to, to the extent PSB played an especially comp...

Re: NEW ALBUM THIS YEAR

We know that: Electric sold a squillion times more albums the Elysium Stuart Price is a very well known dance music DJ, producer and writer Electric was one of their best ever selling tours Neil and Chris both loved the albums and shows So therefore, I don't think we should expecting a 70s disco, Cu...

Didn't Neil's mirrorball hat just get sold? I hope for the buy there isn't a second one tucked away!

The One-Hit Parade

I think this was fairly well known about, but N&C recorded an early 80s track as the theme music for a German TV show.

It's today's Pet Text.
