Re: Just listened to Relentless - it's not very good

Some Speculation was played at the Savoy and is not on the DVD. I have a vague memory from being at the Savoy that Neil left the stage for both “The man who has everything” and “Some speculation” and Chris played chords while Sylvia sang and Les Childs did his thing. Does anyone else remember that?

Re: CD with demos of "Actually"

The snippets are interesting. Maybe the CD-Rs are genuine from the compiling of Actually Further Listening in 2001, but it’s more likely he’s made them himself, especially as the listing is so defensive. Even if I was willing to spend £2,400 on these, the listing is so angry I wouldn’t give him my b...

Re: Just listened to Relentless - it's not very good

I do love Relentless. Mastering-wise, of course I’d like to see it remastered and repackaged (I’m a fan and love buying stuff) but if you’ve got a good CD player with good speakers it sounds great. At least as good as it did in 1993. I really, really want that 3x 12” set, but I’m so fussy I won’t bu...

Re: 4th single off Hotspot - I Don't Wanna

So, back on topic, what do we think of the artwork? It's interesting they've completely stepped out of the Hotspot style, apart from the way the text is treated on the back. They must have thought it was a very strong idea.

Re: 1988 photo

I'm enjoying these. I think it's just a case of Neil being at home on lockdown and sharing a bit of "content".

Thanks for uploading them to the forum, psbfannyc!

Re: Annually 2020 + Free CD

I think it's quite obvious and common that artists record music and their fan don't know about that how many songs and projects are in the drawer. Anyway, that's another set of forgettable, semi-polished sketches, something which can be appreciated only by hardcore fans like us. Didn't have high ho...

This is obviously about to be announced, Facebook events always sneak out early!

Re: Do you think PSB should postpone the DREAMWORLD tour because of covid-19?

There's the holding line on the website saying they'll let us know when they have information. I think they're evidently having issues rescheduling. Venues are already booking up for 2021 with planned events and others rescheduled from this year, and I think they're waiting until they've rescheduled...

Re: Derek Jaerman #SaveProspectCottage

This is really good news. I gave some money to this (I'll get a nice Michael Craig-Martin print and some gorgeous Claire Twomey/Conran plates which have been donated by the artists). Prospect Cottage is inextricably linked to the world of British art and design in the 80s and 90s, this campaign mean...

Re: Do you think PSB should postpone the DREAMWORLD tour because of covid-19?

Bringing this back on topic, as it's very depressing to come to a PSB forum and see people arguing about COVID-19 stats and quarantine measures, particularly as you can do that virtually anywhere else on the internet... With the cancellation of Glastonbury, we should look at Dreamworld, which was sl...

Re: Annually is available to pre order

One thing they could do with "Muzik" is reissue/remaster Closer To Heaven and add Muzik as a bonus disc. And then do a 4 CD set of the PSB versions I genuinely love this idea. I'd like the full version of "My night" with the dialogue too. Pet Shop Boys Theatre could be quite a box set! Closer to He...

Re: Annually is available to pre order

Just to clarify for anyone who didn't get to see the play, it was not a musical and none of the cast sang. The instrumentals are excellent and were played at various points during the play. One of them has elements from the Electric Tour version of "I get excited (you get excited too)". Various clas...
