Re: It Couldn't happen here - locations

Might give Clacton a miss now: https://www.essexlive.news/news/essex-news/clacton-sea-named-one-worst-2959410 I suspect the Pets brought the only vague glamour to the place since the Victorian era. Now only famous for Brexit supporters and slimy molluscs in aspic, though the two are interchangeable.

Re: Today I listened to Elysium for the first time since 2012...

Elysium is a great album. I love the less popular ones like Hold On and Your early stuff. Memory of the future is a highlight and Leaving is one of the best tracks they've ever recorded. I don't agree with various substituted b sides people are suggesting. In his imagination is overrated and not alb...

Re: 1988 photo

My exact thoughts! Why post this as a Pet Text without any context? Not like the Boys to post simply for nostalgias sake. More to this than meets the eye I say! Everything means something, as Neil used to sing in year 2012 Exactly! Neil knows best...if this isn't significant in some way I'd be surp...

Re: Record Store Day 2020

On the subject of RSD did anyone know of the existence of this promo?

Re: Record Store Day 2020

If the new album comes out this autumn there MAY be an RSD release in April but if it's delayed til the Spring then no. I'm not wildly interested in PSB RSD releases but if they were to release something it would be nice to have Relentless or maybe some Alan
Turing demos.

Re: The New Album Info Thread

Maybe he said "around September" and it's always been September or October for autumn studio albums. In fact, if you'll indulge me- Actually September 87 Introspective October 88 Behaviour October 90 Very September 93 Bilingual September 96 Nightlife October 99 Elysium September 12 If it's not relea...

Re: The New Album Info Thread

I reckon it might be delayed to Spring 2020. On what basis? They've already been working on it for a while, haven't they? And wasn't Price supposed to be pretty fast in his work? Gut feeling based on the language being used. When they say "the plan is for September" and then "we'll see" they are la...

Re: PSB EDINBURGH MUSICAL SHOW

I used to like Frances Barber when she was in things like Inspector Morse and Red Dwarf (she was sex on a stick - a real hornbag especially when I was 15) But now she's just a croaky old cow spouting bullshit about things she knows nothing about and seems permanently pigeon-holed to playing over tes...

Not at all. Just channelling what some on this forum probably think anyway. I doubt many are exactly thrilled at the return of BT. Bit like an 18 year old corpse suddenly saying "and another thing..."

Re: PSB EDINBURGH MUSICAL SHOW

Pet Shop Boys are to commit secondary career suicide in ill-advised Edinburgh drag show. Neil Tennant says "We were planning to release the third in our highly acclaimed trilogy of albums produced by Stuart Price but at the last minute decided to return to the scene of our career nadir of the late 9...
