Re: Pet Shop Boys to create music for My Beautiful Laundrette stage adaptation

Great to read about Hit Music, one of the few neglected tracks from the imperial phase. And yes, that little bit in the video sounds very good. I still believe they should release a Laundrette EP in october or november to fill the gap between Dreamland and second single/240120. It'd definitely make...

Re: Pet Shop Boys to create music for My Beautiful Laundrette stage adaptation

Thanks for your replies. I'm please to share the information.

Oh, the back wall of the set had various prints of the West End girls sleeve art stuck there slightly ''randomly'' to look like street advertising.

The lyrics as printed in the programme for ''no boundaries'' Kiss me, caress me, talk dirty for love, Coming and going, we can't get enough, Sweaty and subtle we're in this for good, Living a new life where love has no boundaries, I'm not the same as you, You're not the same as me, But we both agree...

Re: Pet Shop Boys to create music for My Beautiful Laundrette stage adaptation

I attended the public dress rehearsal yesterday afternoon and first performance last night. The subject matter of this adaptation of love without boundaries of gender race and class is so relevant still in adressing prejudice. No boundaries Kiss me, caress me talk dirty for love, Coming and going we...

They need to release that version of What have I done to deserve this?? with Beverley Knight as a single!
I'd buy it and some for my friends and family! I was thinking how it would make a great single.

So hard needs to be a contender. Long time since Performance and I don't count Cubism.

Re: Disturbing PSB dreams

I was obsessed with a rare and secret PSB album that I didn't own. I made plenty of anxiety dreams about it. I think it came from not owning Relentless at the time, when it came out, but that dream continued a few years further even when I bought both Relentless on vinyl and Very Relentless on cd. ...

Re: Pet Shop Boys - Hyde Park Sep 15th 2019

Well two amazing days that can never repeated. As far as Hyde Park, I'm not always great at standing in a huge crowd and dealing with the behaviour of others including pushing and shoving, smoking and loud screams (the screams were from the Westlife fans). However I have many happy happy memories - ...

Yeah, Zoe Ball just said it.
Just said what? Sorry, I've listened to it but was doing something else at the time so must've missed it.
That there were only a handful of tickets left.

Re: September single...???

I've still to visit Dreamland in Margate. It's not run as a huge commercial money making exercise but more as a focus to encourage tourism along with Turner contemporary so I hope it the single encourages people to visit. I'd be up for going with some fellow Petheads...
