Re: DREAMWORLD TOUR

Not sure how I feel about a "greatest hits" tour...it feels like closer to retirement...but these things make money and they need to tour to pay for all of their productions I'm sure...I guess I never thought they would do a "greatest hits" tour...it's not creative enough for me and quite frankly I...

Re: PSB EDINBURGH MUSICAL SHOW

Having listened end to end about 3 times in the last 24 hrs, I think Musik is one of the most coherent, consistently strong bodies of work the boys have released in decades. In particular, it showcases their songwriting abilities, rather than exhibiting the shiny sheen of a famous producer. I would...

Re: PSB EDINBURGH MUSICAL SHOW

MONGREL Very good songwriting. Clever, Weill-like chord changes in the bridge. Production quite poor, with obvious use of Logic-presets (the drums in particular) up front in the mix. Would have benefitted stylistically by some guitars. SOUP Catchy. Great drum programming. Muddily produced. RUN GIRL ...

Re: Piano Solo, I want a Dog (Introspective)

This is a fully improvised, blues-style piano solo, and it makes no sense trying to replicate it, nor notate it to sheet music. For any pianists skilled in blues, this style of solo is pretty easy, btw.

Re: BBC4 Top of the Pops Repeats

Introspective became the best selling PSB album ever. Arguing that it flopped, and a 1989 release would have solved it becomes a bit silly, doesn’t it?

And despite not going #1 in UK, Domino Dancing was a massive hit, and a much loved live favourite

Re: What Have I Done To Deserve This - Demo snippet?

It is.

A bit later in the programme there is also snippets of what supposedly is the shelved single mix of Daydreaming.

Re: PSB EDINBURGH MUSICAL SHOW

Why the hatred? This is excellent news! Four new PSB songs! It’s not like this little project is sidetracking the album campaign. And if people can’t stand Mrs. Barbers voice, just wait for the demos on the FL 2018-2020 in ten tears time 😀👍

Wow! Broadcast in Norwegian TV! I really can't see it happen in Swedish television, but I hope to be proven wrong.

Inner Sanctum: new TV edit

This weekend NRK in Norway broadcasted a TV edit of the Inner Sanctum show. It had a different track order than the german one we got earlier, and it had end credits. So I guess this is the one that will be used by other broadcasters as well. https://tv.nrk.no/program/KOID26008918/pet-shop-boys-live...

I remember a grand piano from interior shots of his house in the north. He sold the house not long ago, so it's probably this piano.
Was that Fawnlees Hall or a more recent property?
Yes, it was
