King of Rome for me, one of their greatest album tracks
Yes! I can't believe anyone would dislike KoR.

I love 'Electricity' - and I think I'm in a minority there. My other dirty secret is The night I fell in love - it is a wonderfully vicious piece of subversive story-telling...

Re: Do you have the feeling of a "non surprising" album to come?

Dark and electronic.... with all their pop songs saved for the album after the completion of the Trilogy. I actually think we might be in for back-to-back albums in 2019 and 2020/early 2021, mirroring what happened with Elysium and Electric. I'm not sure they've got another 'banging with lasers' wor...

Who edited the first draft of the OT, I wonder?

They should be sacked....

Re: Poll ends soon on exposing yourself to "new music"

I am sponge, not stone (one for all the Withnail fans there....).

I have just bought a 'new' album called 'Scale' by Matthew Herbert, which I then found out was actually released in 2006.... it's amazing.

And I like new stuff too....

Re: Do you expect news from the new album for Christmas?

If they really do have 24 songs, perhaps they could pick four which won't make it onto the new album, and give us an EP ahead of the Asia tour?

Or release The Lost Room?

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.
