Re: Pet Shop Boys Performance Tour

I've seen PSB on every tour Savoy residency onwards and nothing matched my expectations having seen Performance on VHS.

I think the nearest has been the Fundamental tour and/ or Battleship Potemkin in Trafalgar Square.

I am very envious of those who managed to see it live.

Peak PSB, IMHO.

Re: Quotes covered in quotation marks!

The forum is on the verge of becoming pointless because of this technical issue.

Very annoying for the reader.

Re: Complete Singles Collection Vol. 1

I like most of the Very remixes myself but having the tracks to stream or purchase individually would make sense given differing tastes. Why do I have to dig out and rip my US import of Go West to listen digitally to the amazing Kevin Saunderson Trance Mix of the track? Of course, entirely a First W...

Re: Complete Singles Collection Vol. 1

I second the idea that they should just put all the remixes online to either stream or for track by track purchase.

I don't want or would listen to an entire CD of very similar West End Girls remixes myself...

Re: Dricography: Ranking Nightlife

They should have got Rollo to produce the entire thing, IMHO.

Didn't Rollo publicly say that Happiness Is An Option wasn't a very good song, or something similar?

He could have been their Stuart Price for the late 90's.

Re: Appreciation Thread for HCYETBTS Album Version

Miserablism was to be where The End of the World is. I have never thought of this track as a b-side. I would have liked to have had a Behaviour with BOTH Miserablism and The End of the World on it. I prefer the single mix of HCYETBTS myself and I think it would have fitted into the aesthetic of the...

Re: Are we content ?

As a thoroughly spoilt fan, if I may venture to express a preference, while I enjoy theatrical Pet Shop Boys, and club Pet Shop Boys with all the production sheen, the Pet Shop Boys I love most is DARK. I sincerely hope that Price's final fling is dark / Italo / perhaps a little more mid-tempo whil...

Re: *YOUR* Perfect PSB 'Best of' Album

Go West is a PSB's superproduction, the blockbuster you can't avoid. I don't understand why some people hate that song is really impressive. Playing Devil's advocate for a moment, is the song really that impressive? Strip it of the PSB production and the associated video and imagery, I think you ha...
