Re: 2021- 40 years of Pet Shop Boys

It would be nice to hear the Behaviour demos because I don't think they've ever surfaced. The whole "not of master quality" argument is a bit spurious, as by definition they're not of master quality because they're demos! Unless they're really, really lo-fi, but I can't imagine they'd be any worse t...

I’d much rather do something like this than go to a gig, to be honest. I must be getting old.
This is the future of Pet Shop Boys’ live performances. Neil gives a talk, while Chris stays at home.

Re: Neil's flogging off an antique piano.

Beautiful piano! I hope the new owner takes very good care of this great piece of music history. I would think they would to be honest as it was a lot of money. I wonder if a fan bought it? It is a shame Neil has sold it. "Neil on the Joanna" has a certain ring to it so to speak. :lol: I thought £1...

Re: What is your least favourite EVER Pet Shop Boys song?

"Happiness Is An Option", anyone? On my first date with my now wife, she said (about her previous relationship) “I was just not happy” as we were getting back into my car after dinner somewhere. I played “Happiness is an option” on the CD player. She liked it and went on to buy us tickets to the “N...

That On social media bass line is vintage Lowe.
I’d go as far as to say it’s one of their best bass lines in years.

Re: New EP on April: Agenda

There’s one fan’s review that’s noticeable by its absence. What happened to bohemians anyway?

On the other hand, I’m fully expecting the Drico review of Agenda to drop this weekend.

Re: New EP on April: Agenda

Lyrically it’s a Spitting Image song. Musically it’s from the same range as Hit and Miss (although not as good), I Started A Joke and Winner. It’s got strumming guitars! There’s a certain innocence and purity to the tune that’s appealing. The lyrics are biting and the music is not remotely edgy; a c...

Forum quoting!

I can’t take it any more. When is someone going to fix the f***ing forum quoting so it works when you’re not logged in! It’s been broken for months. Just what is the problem?

I think with these unambiguous lyrics he’s giving stupidity a chance.

Re: PSB announce ‘Inner Sanctum’ live DVD/BLU RAY/CD

I think I’ll skip this. I guess I’m not the completionist I used to be. I never watch or listen to recordings of the live shows. The ROH show was unbelievably thrilling in 2016, slightly less so last year (just through familiarity) and now I’m ready for new music please. For those that were waiting ...

Re: How many records do you guess PSB has sold in their career?

Over fifty million records is the figure that seems to have been quoted in the introduction to every article about them for about the past twenty years.
