Re: Pet Shop Boys Performance Tour

Performance was the first concert I ever went to and it’s still my favourite. I was 17. It was a Sunday and I caught a coach from Lincoln to the Birmingham N.E.C. for the 90-odd mile trip. I was supposed to be going with my friend who’d got me into a lot of PSB material a few years previously, but ...

Re: Pet Shop Boys Performance Tour

Nothing could ever top Performance. I saw the very last show, in Dublin, one day after turning 19. Blown away. All of their tours have been hugely enjoyable, but Performance was the apotheosis of everything they ever set out to do. The giant clock, the dystopian dorm, the blow up doll, the bondage,...

Re: Neil Tennant announces new book

I'm just pleased there are fans enough glued to their monitors this evening....

Such is the age and enthusiasm of the fanbase on here that you fear the terrible day will come when there's no one listening....

I'm really looking forward to hearing Neil in action - it is always a treat.

A song about refugees
A song about Berlin
A major new love song

Re: 30 YEARS OF INTROSPECTIVE

I vividly remember getting my vinyl copy on the day of release, the first time I had done that with any band. It was a magical experience. I remember looking at the white type on black background and thinking how smart and cool it was. Possibly that was the day I truly entered the PSB universe....fr...

Re: BBC4 Top of the Pops Repeats

Neil is trembling.

And the hat makes him look like Worzel Gummidge.

Re: Oddball Matchup Round 2: Bolshy has new competition

I hope Building A Wall gets an outing at some point.

It's definitely an oddball, but also one of my all time favourites.
