Re: New Pet Shop Order Boys

Can we all admit “the unity tour” is a horrible name? It implies there was animosity or a rift between the bands, which there never was (afaik). So many more creative, and apt, choices. They should call it one and three quarters. To represent it being the Pet Shop Boys and three quarters of New Ord...

Re: New Pet Shop Order Boys

I get it, I’m not necessarily looking for riffing within a song, id just like a dynamic set list. Bring back the awesome show from the first tour. With the electric chair bit as well. (I think that was on the first tour?). That was Suburbia/So Sorry I Said from the Performance tour, which was the s...

Re: New Pet Shop Order Boys

Talking of New Order, I’d be fascinated to know if Neil and Chris are on speaking terms with Hooky. It must be very awkward.

Re: New Pet Shop Order Boys

I see lots of first/second tours from electronic bands with far fewer resources than PSB and they all can manage dynamic, exciting, shows. I don’t see the challenge. Yes, I agree, it’s been their MO to put together a performance and beat it into the ground, but I’m hoping touring with the (slightly...

Re: New Pet Shop Order Boys

Why would they use a Pet Shop Boys’ font from 18 years ago? Unless it reflects the type of live performance it’s going to be. Maybe more of “live” show with more musicians than usual? Interesting thought. That’s what I was thinking, a Release style back to basics show, rather than a full on Electri...

Re: How could the imperial phase have been prolonged

As you might know I do not consider the imperial phase ended with the release of Domino Dancing but with the release of Paninaro '95. I have now reconsidered and put the end at the release of Yesterday, when I was mad - an egocentric song, pointless beyond the hardcore fanbase. It depends what you ...

Re: Nr 1 single again, after 35 years

Oh, I wondered how charts worked! :roll: Well, if you understand how they work what sense does your question about "how many" make then? The number will always depend on how many the other artists sell. And those numbers will depend on the popularity of those others — which is always individual to ...

How many physical singles do you have to sell nowadays to be number one?
The number does not matter so long as you sell more than anybody else.

On Hotspot - Happy People and obviously the Wedding song. The bells sound really haunting to me. Do they really sound like this or do you think PSB's have done something to the sound of them? They sound like they are being played backwards to me. :?
They’ve been put through an effect or two.

Re: Hotspot ratings

9/10 from me. I’m playing it every day. The melodies are beautiful. It’s just lovely. A top three PSB album for me. If the vocals on Dreamland were better and if Happy People segued into Wedding in Berlin the way it sounds like it originally did, leaving Burning the Heather to end the album…it would...
