Re: Agenda instead of Hotspot

I’m off to paint a red nose on the Mona Lisa if anyone wants to join me. I think it will improve it.

Re: "Literally & Pet Shop Boys versus America +": Autographed by Neil & Chris March 19, 2020

Can I suggest following them on Instagram and putting notifications on.

Not great for those that aren’t allowed a phone near them. But if you have an iphone / apple watch combination you can pretty much find out straightaway.

Re: Monkey Business Official Video

Isn’t this the follow up to the Being Boring video.? Is where are those pretty people at the Hamptons house party ended up?

There was monkey business there too - on a tricycle if I remember correctly.

Re: 3rd single "Monkey Business" (Jan 2020)

Friend Within remix is amazing, especially the intro and the first part of the mix). It reminds me Drunk Attaboy 'Still Love You When We're Sober' Mix a little. I love this kind of mixes. My wife came into the room I was playing it in and loudly proclaimed “Is the Clothes Show back on?”. I have to ...

Why can’t all remixes be like the Discomiks mix?

Re: Hotspot - Forum Reactions.

At the risk of this becoming a pile on, PSB are not going to have another ‘imperial’ hit single. You only need to look at the charts and have a basic knowledge of promo to understand that it won’t happen. At the end of the day they are 60+ year old blokes making pop music. That’s not to say they won...

Re: Back catalogue countdown to Hotspot

Release will always be my ‘redundancy’ album - having been made redundant a couple of months beforehand. As a result I didn’t buy the four alternative covers, infact i was hard pushed to find the £12 for the CD. I think it was worth it for Birthday Boy alone. I still don’t know what its about (despi...

Re: 3rd single "Monkey Business" (Jan 2020)

I went on a run today and played MB on repeat for about 30 mins. It never grated and even managed to get me up a steep hill towards the end.

Its a solid 7/8 track, which considering we are 35+ years into their career is amazing. I don’t get the hate on this at all.

Re: Hotspot - Forum Reactions.

Greetings, You seem a bit disappointed. No, it's about what I expected, given what we'd heard so far. I'm on my 3rd listen now and I'd happily agree with EV's 4 star review. I know a professional reviewer who plans on giving it 3.5 stars (just like the aforementioned professional review) once their...

Re: Decide (Burning the Heather b-side)

... and it makes 'heather' (sic: no capital letter) sound even more epic. I've haven't listened to the single edit for a while - i've been enjoying the 'unofficial mix' but it accidentally came on after the CYA remix and it sounded like vintage classic PSB. 'Decide' is outstanding though. How on ear...
