Re: Burning the heather

I know Neil's explanation about the song but the lyrics.... (I’ve just dropped in for a drink before I disappear. Where did I come from? Where do I go? Time is so heartless. You don’t want to know. I set out in the dark waking from a nightmare hoping I could find the middle of nowhere. I'm a strang...

Re: The New Album Info Thread

I don't think that on Neil's mind hotspot is the internet thing. If we consider his own political ideas, after Agenda, Dreamland, his avversion to Brexit and Trump, I bet he's referring to the migrants hotspot. Interesting. "What are Hotspots? The ‘Hotspot approach’ involves the establishment ...

Re: The New Album Info Thread

I'm surprised it is "Hotspot - Pet Shop Boys" and not "Pet Shop Boys - Hotspot".

Re: Known bootlegs and Ebay advice.

Hey all. I've had some time at work recently to browse thru the PSB stuff on Discogs and while I have seen some pretty nice looking bootleg "promo" CD singles, this one kinda stuck out: Pet Shop Boys ‎– Left To My Own Devices/I Want A Dog (Frankie Knuckles Mixes) - https://www.discogs.com...

Re: Album Timescales

Seems to be getting shorter since X2. Probably they have more control and less reliance on other people's deadlines.

Re: Weak production

Agreed, the flat sound from Dreamland is terrible. I thought it was a dodgy MP3 when I first heard it but the physical release is just the same. Shame as I quite like the song but it is almost unlistenable on good sound equipment.

Re: Dreamland / No Boundaries CD single - October

Remixes are terribly terribly dull. Haven't listened to the b-sides yet but looking forward given the positive reaction on here.

Get an instrumental bit of the same section and you can use it to cancel it out leaving only the bit that is different (ie the vocal in this example).
