Re: Pop Kids CDsingle in pre-order

I figure N&C make a little more thru the OS Shop.
Every bit helps.

I have asked about adding the single to an existing order.
Will post if I hear anything useful.

Ta. :D

The way I see it is, every PSB CD single we order thru the OS,
increases the chances of more PSB singles.

Re: Pre-order: Pet Shop Boys SUPER, the new album out April 1

I actually intended to order from the PSB homepage, but the link from Wayne's site to the Official Website leads to a Youtube advert, and when it stops it goes to Amazon instead of PSB's homepage. It's a bit pity since I had received an e-mail about pre-ordering from the Official PSB Shop... That's...

Re: Closer to Heaven revival in London 2015

I think CTH is for the core fans, but very rewarding if it clicks for you. Like any musical, if not familiar with it, listen to the album a few times first. Even CallMeOldFashioned works then. Try and see a copy of the 1981 CD of Billie Trix's 1970 Hit RunGirlRun which outraged Nixon and Mao. Run Gi...

Re: Forum rules update

It is illegal in civilised countries, to broadcast material intended, or likely to, incite hate against a group based on ethnicity. This is balanced by courts dismissing more benign cases. We have seen posted here, huge amounts of material to incite hatred of Muslims. Free speech has been abused, no...

Re: Record stores in Singapore, Sydney and Cairns

Record stores. Ha ! :lol: If you are lucky, you are near a JB Hi-Fi store : https://www.jbhifi.com.au :| They still sell CDs. Last week their PSB section had Discography CD and that's about it. I know there are a few good stores in downtown Sydney and Melbourne that sell records but don't expect muc...

It's the end of the (very modern) Religious program late on Saturday night. And ...

"Did you know the Pet Shop Boys are town and doing concerts" ?

"We can't think of a better way to end then ... "

Surprise, surprise.

Promo for a competition, prize is tickets to "see Pet Shop Boys",
with PSB song playing.

Re: Your three wishes for the future

I am sorry for those upset by this. Not my intention. :(

My NY wish is that Neil makes some gesture (any gesture) for peace in 2014.

They could insist that 50, or 5 or even 1 Palestinian is allowed into the concert.

Something we could be proud of.

Re: Your three wishes for the future

I may go along with a musicians right to be entertainers and not be political but that is not PSB's position.  It was Neil who made a statement that there is no problem inside Israel and it was clearly a lie, to make money. Hardly the altruistic musician.  Also they are taking a political stand by b...

Re: Your three wishes for the future

Israel is continuing to take Palestinian land to build apartments. This is more then theft, it technically is genocide. It has been going on for 60 years and is the big problem stopping world peace. We are trying hard to use peaceful methods such as a boycot to get Israel to make peace. Stopping gen...

Re: Poll ends soon on preferred Tennant/Lowe DVD release

OMG Wayne,

why not include Discovery which would be my pick.

Apart from that CTH.
