Re: B-Sides since 2009's "Format"

They missed a trick by not calling Alternative "Besides" and Discography "Asides". Still time, of course. Drico. They didn't exactly miss a trick. They'd always planned to call it Besides but then another band beat them to it the same year. Talk Talk has an "Asides/Besides" 2-disc set. Such a shame...

Re: Neil Tennant in conversation, Saturday 5 October 2019, RNCM Theatre

... and let’s face it, for PSB to perform live, there are very few physical requirements of them: Neil: the ability to slap thighs and lift hands to the heavens while walking across the stage Brilliant. Would be interesting if they did the Nightlife version of Being boring now to see how long it ta...

Re: Neil Tennant in conversation, Saturday 5 October 2019, RNCM Theatre

I wonder if the name of the new tour is a sign that it might be their last..? They are now both in their 60s and they may feel that their time is better spent in the studio. I know touring is where all the money is these days but that's no good if you're not up to it any more

Concrete sucks so much, and that version of West End girls is so limp.
Disagree with the second part of what you said. West End girls is possibly the highlight of the album - although that probably says more about the song than Concrete.

Re: Dreamland / No Boundaries CD single - October

Yes true because it's vinyl and CDs that they are focusing on when saying that plastic is bad for the planet. Forget about the carrier bags, bottles, straws and unnecessary food wrappings :lol: And there was I, just trying to be a little nostalgic for the good ol' days when the planet was safe and ...

Re: Neil Tennant in conversation, Saturday 5 October 2019, RNCM Theatre

I agree with Drico. Electronic was a side project. A whole new Pets album is much, much more exciting. I wouldn’t mind a single, but a whole album would just delay new Pets stuff in my eyes. Especially if they toured with it. Daveid I assume you’re joking. Not really. I experience time in reverse. ...

Re: Neil Tennant in conversation, Saturday 5 October 2019, RNCM Theatre

If the possibility of another Electronic album is "bigger news than anything to do with the forthcoming album", Neil and Chris should shut the pet shop once and for all. Honestly, they get taken for granted these days. Drico. How can you say this? Electronic was the musical mothership that launched...

Re: The New Album Info Thread

Thanks to the intrepid Dog for his tidbits of information in the Neil in Conversation thread. The key nugget appears to be that the lead single is to the new album what So Hard was to Behaviour, i.e., rather more uptempo (or at least rather different in style). That suggests we are going downtempo ...
