Re: Trilogy remixes

Surely a passing mention for the Twenty Something (Nissim Godfather Remix) - one of the most interesting remixes in their career. Reminds me of the old Frankie Goes To Hollywood remixes of the 80's i.e ridiculous, camp and over the top. G. This is the unreleased one, isn’t it? Do we know why it did...

Re: Trilogy remixes

If I recall correctly...they had already commissioned a "full track-listing of remixes" from "Electric" for the remix album "Electrified", correct? I hope we get to hear them one day. It doesn’t say that from the bit of Literally I revisited. It says the idea evolved into their new versions of Fluo...

Re: Trilogy remixes

I'm still hoping they release the Mike Mago remix of "Inside a Dream" that was supposed to be on the "Electrified" remix album that got scrapped. Does anyone remember why they cancelled "Electrified"? I know it was supposed to be a "tour only" purchase. What other remixes were supposed to be on it?...

Re: Trilogy remixes

Thanks for the replies and recommendations. A few I’ve listened to with fresh ears - Vocal (JMRX Club Mix), Bourgeois Construct (Clapton Remix) and Thursday (JRMX & Jon M Club Mix, and the Eddie Amador Remix) - have a bit more about them than I’d remembered. The Inner Sanctum and Axis mixes never qu...

Trilogy remixes

What are your favourite remixes from 2013 to 2020? I’m not sure it’s been a great period for remixes but I’d love to be convinced otherwise. If a Disco 5 were to be made up of the best remixes from these years, what would you put on it?

Re: When you stop liking the music as much

My favourite acts are Pet Shop Boys, New Order / Joy Division, the KLF, Kraftwerk, Suede, Aphex Twin and Boards of Canada. While all of these have, in my eyes, consistent catalogues - some larger than others - Pet Shop Boys are my favourite by a country mile. Their consistency, for me, is unsurpasse...

Chris has worn masks his whole life. I expect he’s quite happy with this new development.

Re: Pet Shop Boys "Lyrically" ... a statistical analysis of PSB lyrics

I love this; thank you. I’ve used it to put together a couple of playlists based on two of their most common themes: Pet Shop Boys: At night https://open.spotify.com/playlist/6hAd8dncnwVo5i6tlXTmrv?si=8GTmiu7QT8OJR2a9NOlgVg Pet Shop Boys: In love https://open.spotify.com/playlist/5owoog7yw5ltxS3LKAB...

Re: Common lyrical themes

Endless bickering, complaining and whining: You only tell me you love me when you're drunk I don't know but you want but I can't give it any more That's my impression Why don't we live together? What have I done to deserve this? Ha, especially if said in a particular voice, with a particular intona...

Re: Chris playing keytar

Just done a hunt and not found it yet but did find this - I didn’t know they’d ever performed I’m not scared on TV. https://youtu.be/Sj9CokMi8MI Do you think they're miming to the seven inch edit from that ultra rare 3 x 7" Introspective set here? Would love a digital release of those edits one day...
