Re: Wow! Chris has appeared.

It's always good to see Neil posting updates, but to have one from Chris is mind blowing. He probably won't be aware of how much joy his short video brings to people. Obviously in these troubling times we want everyone to be ok and stay healthy, and crucially we want these 2 pop goliaths to be ok. I...

Re: Past competiton winners?

The guy who won Chris' Can You Forgive Her? costume with pointy hat, 2 gloves and parlophone letter from 1993 on Radio 1's Very competition sold it on eBay in 2006. I bought it (it's now in storage I'll never sell it). Wow! Good to know that one survived. Does that include the white "glasses"? I th...

Re: Known bootlegs and Ebay advice.

Had to share this as it's so laughable. Looks like they've taken a pic of the boys on a wooden table then photo-shopped it onto a clear disc. Apparently this is 'very hard to find', maybe as it's a blatant fake. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Pet-Shop-Boys-Opportunities-Rare-12-Uncut-Picture-Disc-LP-Di...

Re: Exclusive 7“ in German „Musikexpress“ magazine

Yeah I too was expecting a credit card or PayPal option to appear. I just used the iban and bic option. Luckily I have an oldish account with not much money in it (in case something went wrong). Got an email confirmation confirming order. Will now have to wait and see. I ordered 2 copies.

Re: Electronic reissue on white vinyl

Thanks for the info. Have ordered from Rhino UK site.
Still have the original in orange/black sleeve bought on day of release and hardly played, so this will be a nice addition. :D

Electronic was a terrific album.

There's nothing wrong in seeing what happens when creative people get together. You get something extra, and nothing is lost.
Well said. Even if they just released an EP (for now), I'm there.

I thought Format would start with Girls & Boys (Live),
The Japanese edition of Alternative ended with Girls & Boys (live)
Oh yes thanks, I'd forgotten about that. I'm aware that Japanese releases tend to have extra tracks. :)

Re: Dreamland / No Boundaries CD single - October

Personally, I'd like to have seen a 7" for this too. Also I remember when you could pop to HMV and grab the CD for 99p and the 12" for £3.99 at most (and get a free bag lol). Those days are long gone. I mean as much as it was nice to get OBJECTS and stuff, it is obviously much much much better for ...

Re: B-Sides since 2009's "Format"

I thought Format would start with Girls & Boys (Live), but can understand why it was left off (and am not that fussed really as it was on one of the Paninaro '95 CDs). I agree that Agenda shouldn't count as that was a stand-alone EP. Wonder what the 3rd instalment would be called (have always liked ...
