Re: New official West End girls 2020 video

And that's why they call me Negative_One :evil: [emoji3] He really is the pessimist pug of this forum isn't he. [emoji28] well, i did say i liked the sasha remixes. but i'm so tired of them doing 'west end girls'. why won't they remake 'opportunities (lets make lots of money)', which is my favorite...

Re: Which song Pet Shop Boys could cover in the future?

I think a cover of “Give me the Night” by George Benson could work.

Where is it? Bring it back. Stuff like the remixes of Cicero or the Patience of a Saint.... music by Chris Lowe. Make the next albums based on this. It could be called 'Level', or 'Crave'.... :grumble:
Yes, if only Chris had had some input into Hotspot it would have been so much better…

So, does it turn out that Very could possibly be the only PSB album the master of which is analogue?
I would be surprised if that were the case.

Re: Master sources

Remember when CDs used to have this on the back sleeve? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SPARS_code From memory I think Introspective was DDD. I don’t have my Please CD to hand. Very was definitely recorded to analogue multitrack because I remember reading an interview with Pete Gleadall saying Chris w...

Re: Memory of the...past

I went to that Decadance party too and was also taken by a couple of fans to see Neil’s early 1990’s house in Wimbledon.

Re: Literally and Versus America musings.

I haven’t read these books since they first came out, but didn’t they say in the foreword of Literally that they were horrified how they came across?

The link was never shared.
Never shared, or never shared publicly? There's an important difference. No-one creates a link for themselves.

I’m With Stupid has legitimately been available as an instrumental for years.

Re: Hey, Super - that's a really good album

Nowadays I never have any great urge to listen to Nightlife, Release, Fundamental or Elysium.

Re: Is now the time for MCMLXXXIX?

Hasn’t this been asked and officially answered several times by now? It’s never going to be released because the footage isn’t very high quality and there’s not enough of it etc.

Re: Interesting article about Dainton

“Pet Shop Boys singer Chris Lowe…”

A long time ago I heard that Pete had a chequered past too. If he was friends with Dainton prior to his PSB involvement, I wonder if it was football hooliganism related.

Re: Bring him back - I know who I want to produce the next album

I get the rush to today's 'Here today, forgotten tomorrow' producer or remixer who are having their 15 minutes of fame for singles but not for albums. Nothing is bound to make it date quickly than that choice. Someone with considerable experience of the mainstream like Giles Martin or Quincy Jones,...
