From OS Pet Texts- April Fool! We hope you all enjoyed our April Fool joke yesterday about the early shipping of the two books and Annually 2020. The items have in fact been delayed til October.

Re: OMD - Pandora's Box (It's a Long, Long Way)

Most notably the spoken middle bit is very similar to the spoken middle bit in Domino dancing. (I love Pandora's box, btw.) When you look around yourself now Do you recognize the girl The one who broke a thousand hearts Terrified the world When you look around you wonder Do you play to win or are y...

Re: OMD - Pandora's Box (It's a Long, Long Way)

Ah, this was when OMD became OMB (One man band). The melody is completely different but the percussion and backing tracks are a sort-of hybrid of Was it worth it? and Go West. If you want to hear PSB songs that are clearly influenced by other songs then listen to The end of the world (Depeche Mode -...

Re: Annually 2020 + Free CD

I'm looking forward to this arriving, probably more than the next single. It'll be a nice dose of normality restored in this ridiculous situation we find ourselves in.

It's alright

I wouldn't normally suggest this kind of thing but wouldn't it be great if the Pets released a new version of It's alright? Having seen Chris's video, I reckon a lot of that would sound great in a new arrangement. Maybe they could just release it digitally. OK, it's a bit of a cash-in on tragedy but...

Re: New single - I don't wanna

I'm surprised people aren't a bit more miffed about the reduction of b sides to one per single. It's like the 80s and early 90s again the difference being that albums were more frequent then. However I suppose Agenda and Laundrette make up for it a bit.
