I went fishing with Salvador Dali; he used a dotted line.

Is it possible to hear/download it right now, or it wasn't put yet? I can't understand...
"I think it’s an amazingly good album, I’ve got to be honest with you. It’s one of the albums I feel most proud of. But for people who don’t really know us, and have a sort of an idea about us, ‘Electric’ is more what the Pet Shop Boys are meant to be."
(Neil Tennant, speaking about "Elysium" on the eve of "Electric" release.)

Yes, thanks. I finally figured it out, was confused with my slow CDMA connection - when I clicked it seemed that nothing happens...

A very nice interview. More time and a proper Q & A would've been awesome.

Has he ever mentioned before it was the Nottingham Uni where he was gonna go study history and archaeology? Could he be on Time Team now, perhaps, if he hadn't gone to London and met Chris? ;) I have a bit of a hard time imagining him getting all muddy digging on a trench for Roman pottery.

Direct link to the podcast mp3 file behind the flash player thingy on the festival website:

The volume on this file seems to be very low so turn up your speakers!

I don´t even manage to download it.

Hello, I am a long-time PSB fan who needs this forum's help... I was in the audience at this Brighton Festival interview back in 2008, where Neil made many very interesting comments, including one to the effect of "people think the 1980s was all about money but it was nothing compared to now". I am currently writing a book (about sort of cultural 'stuff') and would really like to quote this answer - which was actually quite profound - but the podcast seems to have gone so I can't refer to it. Does anyone have an mp3 of the interview that they would be prepared to send to me or make available somehow?

Just to make myself feel less cheap for landing on this board and resurrecting an old thread with a boring request, here is a little PSB-related thought. I had my hand up to ask a question at the talk, but didn't get to ask it. It would have been: 'Neil, you've talked about how the Pet Shop Boys built their career to some extent on saying 'no' to things [i.e. touring, doing silly TV stunts etc.]. Do you think this sort of rebellion, of saying 'no' to things, is still possible in pop music today?' I wonder what the answer would have been. (I am aware of the irony of this considering the recent album title 'Yes'; but I remember listening to the PSB commentary to the album where Neil mentioned 'that journalist' who wrote the book 'Yes Man', about saying 'yes' to everything, and how if the Pet Shop Boys were to do that they would say 'no' to everything. Which I think would have been a far more interesting premise for a book.)
