Re: Neil Tennant in conversation, Saturday 5 October 2019, RNCM Theatre

I bought a ticket for this and was looking forward to it. Unfortunately, I just got back from Italy and I’m exhausted and skint, and the cost of rail travel is getting crazy (£130 single from Gatwick back to Swansea). Factoring in the price of a hotel in Manchester as well, too much. So if anyone de...

Re: DREAMWORLD TOUR

I'm seen them so many times. I dunno this time. If there was going to be something really different, OK. But if it's just more banging lasers, I think I'll pass this one. In the old days, it was always something radically different each time. I’m going to Neil’s talk in Manchester. Hopefully no bang...

Cheers for those mate

Any revelations about the upcoming album?
Hi, he said the next album would be Berlin-style (which I think we know), but there will be some German language on it.

Re: Neil talks about Pop etc - Royal Academy of Arts

Strewth, I can’t remember. My brain’s going. I’ll try ... Neil hated Go West when Chris first played the record, and was sure they’d never release it, so he didn’t even bother writing down the lyrics (which is why there are apparently some mistakes in their recorded version). Neil hasn’t got a clue ...

Re: Neil talks about Pop etc - Royal Academy of Arts

I just got back from this. It was excellent. Neil was forthcoming and very funny. The interviewer from BBC radio was a class act. Really good night out. Sorry, I can’t remember a thing that was said, but there were many revealing titbits. I’d much rather do something like this than go to a gig, to b...

How did you get a ticket?
The RA website. Yeah, I know it's annoying the tickets didn't go on sale until 10:15 (not 10:00), and then sold out.

Re: Pet Shop Boys at Roundhouse 14th March

“£600 gives an up and coming artist, 5 days in a recording studio”’ So you expect people to pay for some “yoot”’ to lay down some “beats” in a professional environment? If they really were decent potential future artists then why can’t they use the bedroom software that every other struggling music...

Anyone gonna go to this ? I can't decide if its worth it as i can only imagine it will be much of the same as the last one !
I've bought a ticket. I'll let you know how it goes. Day out in London should be fun. Should be a good night, too.

I also love that people are unhappy that these four FREE songs aren't up to scratch.
All music has been free for years. Last music I bought must be about 8 years ago.

Nice video.

Wow! That’s a brilliant concept! Has that been done before? Very clever. Makes the track come alive too. Their best video in decades.

Re: On Social Media

Why a new topic, seriously? Wait for a lyric video to open another one. And then for the song tomorrow. And then on Friday. Then a poll. The guy shouldn’t open a new thread when a new track is released? Seriously? While you posting off-topic is fine? Multiple threads different topics - good. Multip...

Re: Farrow website

We must have very different ideas of “fully functional”! It’s a typical designer’s website - looks great (as long as you don’t have any accessibility needs of course), but it barely works as a website. there’s no obvious way to change to the next image, at least on my iPad. Yes, it's a iPad problem...

Re: Neil Tennant announces new book

Delivery by Hermes? Oh, you’ve had it. Sorry for your loss. Condolences.

Have you checked your garden? Might be under a bush. Or maybe in the dustbin? On your roof? In a dog? Could be anywhere, frankly.

Re: In conversation

Hmm... not sure about that title. A bit crass. And sounds too much like I'm with stupid. How about something like Idiocracy? You can use it boys I don't mind. Yeah, I was thinking “The Wisdom of the Crowd” would have been a good title. “He said that what people referred to as “political correctness...
