Re: Unity Tour Virtual Concert

It is a "virtual" concert, because it is not a real concert it is compiled from a variety of sources, there is even some studio versions mixed in. It is produced insofar as it was compiled and mixed as part of my weekly show, done as a tribute and as a memorial of the missed occasion. It serves no o...

Unity Tour Virtual Concert

I've seen Pet Shop Boys play live 3 times but I've never actually seen New Order play live, I was really looking forward to seeing New Order and Pet Shop Boys play together in San Francisco, to memorialize the event that never happened, I produced a 2 hour special for my late night radio show AfterH...

Re: Battleship Potemkin - True, accurate sync

I really enjoyed watching this. Well done. I've wanted to see Potemkin like this for years.

Re: Final results of poll on why "Being Boring" under-performed as a single

Being boring was the fine example of why PSB were called "The Smiths you could dance to," complete with the interpolated intro of "The Queen is Dead." It was wistful,it was melancholy, it was nostalgic, it was not pop, it was not a hit, it is a great song. I respected the fact they released it as a ...

Re: Interesting how PSB are not "connected" by "Alternative Music", according to Wired Magazine

Just looks like an ignorant chart to me. If you only get your musical education from visiting the vinyl racks at Urban Outfitters, you may come up with something like that. Funny how they would include Saint Etienne, who were influenced by PSB but omit them. Even David Bowie just gets a little court...

Re: A Man Could Get Arrested (extended mix) question

It is not a real remix. The "unreleased extended DAT version" is just a glitch on the tape that repeated a section, no remixing, nothing special, no unreleased section of the song, just an error. If anyone has a legit extended version they would like to share to prove me wrong, you are more than wel...

Re: Reissues project

Just to add to the missing list: All or Nothing.... I think it is amazing that even going with 3 discs there is still so much more that they could have included that remains officially unreleased, definitely enough for a career spanning box set of rarities.

Re: Reissues project

"Alone Again, Naturally" is a slightly different mix than the one featured on the promo compilation. The verse sung about 1:40-1:55 features Elton in the background, while the original was just Neil. Other slight variations are also apparent. And yes, the version of "Love Life" on Release is missing...

Re: 2017: "New Batch" of reissued & remastered albums w/ Further Listening albums

A band worth it's salt can just release a product in a limited amount and get the same effect. RSD was an interesting concept during the financial crisis and while no one bought vinyl, but now, it does not really serve much of a purpose. I'm sure it is good for ebay though.

Re: "Annually 2017", pre-order now

The way they handled this release is totally lame. I suppose the CD will be downloadable and the book made into a PDF for all to read on the usual illicit places. But making sure the item is not available to accommodate the demand is simply stupid.

Re: PSB live feed from Coachella

Yes, Left to My Own Devices, The Last to Die, and Heart and What Have I Done To Deserve This? (with a special live guest) would be great if they change things up for the next concert. This broadcast was great though, good camera work, and Neil was on and Chris was his enigmatic self. Chris does a lo...

Re: PSB live feed from Coachella

It is still available as a rebroadcast here: http://www.youtube.com/user/coachella?app=desktop
select station 3 and drag the cursor to near the end of the stream, as they were the final act of the night.
you can manipulate the cursor to the start of the show and enjoy....
