Re: That Crossover Moment.....

The first thing I heard was Always On My Mind, and I absolutely loved it.
Then I heard Heart and was a bit meh.
Domino Dancing seemingly skipped me by, but when I heard Left To My Own Devices, I was hooked for life - age 10.

Re: PMs

Mole,

This just means that the recipient has not picked them up yet. Presumably the recipient is no longer active on the forum.

Re: PSB vinyl art

Greetings Kenny, That said I am always considering new pieces made from PSB 7” records so if any of this great community has any ideas I would love to hear from you. On that note, if you did an ECG Heart one, I'd be keen to see how it turned out. ( Not a potential customer / just a curious PSB fan )...

Re: Next single? (Will there be one?)

There won't be another from Hotspot, but if there is, it should be what the 4th single should have been... Will O' The Wisp.

Re: It Couldn’t Happen Here June 2020 Release Confirmed

Greetings,

I've put in another order with another store... so depending on how this plays out, I might end up with 0, 1 or 2 copies.

What a debacle.

(If by some bizarre and unlikely circumstance I end up with 2 copies, I'll be reselling one at cost price)

Re: Final results of rating "Laundrette" songs and "New Boy"

Greetings,

Yes. But on Discogs? (That's where I've documented mine - in Discogs you can separately list "inventory" and "items I own")

I dug up my IDOSAC CD the other day (trying to document all my PSB collection), and thanked my lucky stars it was intact, silver bubble wrap and all. :dance:
On Discogs?

Re: It Couldn’t Happen Here June 2020 Release Confirmed

Thanks for the reports. Unfortunately I can't comment as I have missed out, despite pre-ordering. I'm sure I'll see the standard edition some day.

Re: PSB vinyl art

The Heart one is a bit uninspired. It would have been better if it had an ECG going through the middle of it.

Re: It Couldn’t Happen Here June 2020 Release Confirmed

Greetings, Sold out at the BFI and unavailable at Amazon. Mine has said 'Preparing For Dispatch' since Friday. That's a concern. If this becomes another of those instances of people pre-ordering something and then missing out, there'll be some justifiably upset Petheads... especially on account of h...

Re: What would you think a future PSB's album should sound like in order to reinvent themselves?

Greetings, I think we’ll get PSB’s “England” album... a counterpoint to Hotspot... More Bernard Butler, maybe co-producing alongside them; Tracey Thorn on a few tracks. Inspired by country walks and musings on identity. I’d be well up for that. Yeah I’d be up for that too I think. If they can keep u...

Re: New Guardian article

Greetings, Then picking Birthday Boy as s deep cut goes to the next level and open up the whole of Release to the new listener. As a primer, having already done Behaviour, anything from Release (or Elysium for that matter) seemed superfluous to me, and skewed things too much in that direction. If th...

Re: What would you think a future PSB's album should sound like in order to reinvent themselves?

Greetings,

I have no interest in them reinventing themselves. I just hope they do what they want to do (although personally, I hope it's not more Guardian political tropes, but that's up to them).

Re: Annually 2020 + Free CD

Excellent news (sort of)!

Very pleased for you Gabby.

Hopefully with the worst of the COVID19 restrictions behind us, the postage of future Pet Shop Boys items may be smoother and more timely.

Re: Annually 2020 + Free CD

Greetings, I lost this game of chicken and ordered a second copy of the CD and 12" of I Don't Wanna from Amazon. Paid through the nose for shipping but if its here quicker than the OS I dont care... Be sure to get in touch with Digital Stores and let them know it never arrived. You will at least get...
