Re: What would you think a future PSB's album should sound like in order to reinvent themselves?

How about a sleazy album. just filled with dark techno, you know like they keep threatening to put out. no bright poppy songs, just heavy techno like fluorescent, inner sanctum, former enfant etc etc with dark lyrics. pounding bass, ravey synths. I dont think they have done that in awhile. but then ...

Re: Any crazy hanging out stories with Neil/Chris?

I have heard some entertainers will be really engaging with someone if the person makes no mention of their fandom and just chats them up whereas sometimes people who make it known they are huge fans will kinda grate on their nerves. i can vouch for this. i have met many musicians, celebrities, and...

Re: What would you think a future PSB's album should sound like in order to reinvent themselves?

Elysium, looking back on it....the lyrics are a passable set of Tennant lyrics. but I think the real problem is there is alot of uninspired music. Memory of the future,hold on,everything means something,your early stuff,winner,ego music. while I know some will say they LOVE some of them, I think mos...

Re: Guardian 100 Greatest UK No.1's

I remember something about them suing someone who implied they didnt play on their own records, but I feel like while reading the remaster booklets from years back it seemed filled with mentions of other people playing on their tunes in the studio. in fact that one interview with Pete Gleadall he al...

Re: West End Girls - Lockdown Version

I just noticed, its interesting they left off the patented PSB pad they put on most songs. its got a sort of light analogy pad but not the usual glorious string pad they put on everything. 😊

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

I've often thought they should cover themselves, like do alternate versions of some of our favorite songs. you know, like put out that dance version of you only tell me you love me when your drunk etc and yeah they could throw on a cover of some other group, but if they are going to do that they mig...

Re: NEIL IS "SELF-ISOLATING" during this Coronavirus Global Nightmare!!!!!!

I dont see Neil really ever letting himself go and grow out a beard. his dog on the other hand probably looks like chewbacca right about now. one of the lesser known downsides to the pandemic. my dogs are also looking pretty rough now. glennjridge - I don't think Neil has got his dog anymore. :( We...

The only move that makes any sense in relation to monkeys is 0:58. I suspect thats supposed to signify a monkey scarfing down bananas.

Re: Answers from isolation - Neil Tennant

I cant imagine Neil cooking. I always assumed he was the type of guy who had staff for such things. like he sits down at the end of a very long table and a maid brings a covered stainless steal pot over to him and uncovers it and then says, "will there be anything else sir?" and then bows and leaves.

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

speaking of vintage PSB I was thinking...they brought back the synth horns for New Boy, but they seem to have resisted the patented PSB orchestra hits sound. I cant remember the last time they used it. maybe can you forgive her.
