Re: Chris Lowe finally comes out in 2011?

I've always considered the only reason youth orientated pop stars conceal their sexuality and indeed girlfriends or boyfriends is financially motivated. I also think that Chris understands, coming from the North that being a fan of openly gay pop stars does carry a certain weight with it. Things hav...

Re: Paninaro vs. Paninaro '95

Both feel like different songs to me and I love them both for different reasons but there's a lot of nostalgia attached to the original. The video on 95 is excellent.

West End girls covered (badly) on 'Whites'

Whites is a BBC drama series about a chef, in this weeks episode during a staff talent show, a black guy is seen on stage complete with PSB glasses, performing West End Girls..pretty badly. 15:55 onwards, most of it is obscured though. http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b00vsp4j/Whites_Episode_6/ ...

Re: RADIO 2 PSB

At 1hr 37minutes for those that don't want to listen to the whole show. 1hr 44 for the playing of Together which Chris describes as a Waltz , thought it was going to turn into Adamski's Killer at one point :).

Re: Viva La Vida

just a comment: the title of this post is a spoiler. Some people might still be trying to avoid knowing what's on the tour - I certainly was before I saw the show in london. Y'know.. I think that after 13 shows and goodness-knows-how-many press releases and reviews floating around in the wider medi...

Re: Two broadsheet reviews: one glowing, one sniffy

the latter's wonderfully human, nasal vocal sounds simultaneously joyous and melancholic
From the Guardian review. Best description of Neil's vocals I've ever read.

Re: I have just completed atoning for my theft, have you?

I must admit that I downloaded Yes without paying :oops: I just could not wait to hear it, so weak of me I know. None the less, I have just finished repaying my debt to the boys. I am now the proud owner of: 1 digital copy of Yes from iTunes US 10$ 1 copy of the Japanese Special Edition 41$ 2 copie...

I always used to do a double-take when the BBC announcer would say "..and now the news with Chris Lowe".

In my nightclubbing days the only time I really remember everyone getting off their arses to dance to the PSB's was to Absolutely Fabulous.

Re: Kylie in Hell - not that closer to heaven...

I'm sure I remember an interview where Neil or Chris jokingly went "well, we won't be doing that again!" about submitting songs to Kylie, but it was clear from the way it was said it was a joke, but this is where the non-story appears to have come from. Yeah it was here : http://www.petshopboys-for...

Re: Time for a latest Video DVD

Just stumbled on the cut of Kings Cross from It Couldn't Happen Here so I'm bumping this ;).


Now would be a great time with the Brits and new album release to release ICHH on DVD and even Blu-Ray.
