Re: That Crossover Moment.....

I had a school friend who was a massive fan. He made me a mix tape of PSB, some time in 1989. Looking back, it was a slightly weird mix of songs; I remember that it had The Sound of the Atom Splitting on it, Don Juan, and Shopping, but not Rent, Suburbia, What have I done to deserve this? or Domino...

Re: That Crossover Moment.....

I had been an enthusiastic though casual fan... until I got to college in the Fall of ‘91 and DISCOGRAPHY came out. BOOM I was hooked and have been a die-hard passionate fan ever since!!

Re: I don't wanna - hey, those remixes are really good

Wow, can't keep my ears off them. Those remixes on the 12'' of I don't wanna are amazing. I don't really listen to them as individual tracks, more like one long remix. When the cowbell sets in after three minutes.... Feels like a perfect merge of the 80's and the 20's. Amazing that something that a...

Re: US TOUR

Are you guys saying that the gigs will not be all the same? Some will mostly feature PSB, others New Order? That seems rather weird. It's a Unity, so I thought both bands will be of equal importance on all dates. They’re both equally billed. But in some shows New Order will open, to be followed by ...

Re: Guardian 100 Greatest UK No.1's

I'm stunned that Depeche Mode never had a #1 single in the UK - I'd have put cold hard cash down on that. Just goes to show that chart positions counted for very little even back in the 80's. Depeche Mode is so dark, I understand they are not very radio friendly. I think the very first songs with V...

Re: Pet Shop Boys on Youtube

I was delighted to finally figure out how to borrow e-books from my library recently. Along with serious literature I borrowed Belinda Carlisle's memoir. I read it in about two hours. I think the Go-Gos were mighty. And I thought she had things under control by the time of "Mad About You" and her s...

Re: 4th single off Hotspot - I Don't Wanna

Might be an odd notion, but while I’ve enjoyed the original version of the track since Hotspot’s release, the David Jackson remixes have me enjoying the actual melody so much more that I’m now an even bigger fan of the original!!

Re: Annually 2020 + Free CD

Completely amazed that my package arrived today, at home in Argentina..altough I paid originally for normal shipping (pre-Covid times...) they send it via DHL..so I went into the situation to pay some extra taxes and import fees, but it´s better anyway than losing an out-of-stock item in the limbo ...

Re: The End Of The World (Needs more love)

I’m passionate about this track as well! It’s one of the classic PSB examples of an uplifting production/arrangement with bittersweet lyrics and delivery. I, too, hope they do it live someday!!
