Their second album, Big Bang was a great piece of 1989 pop and contained a version of Walking On Thin Ice

Strangely enough, I find this thread less baffling than the story about Fuzzbox someone has revealed elsewhere on this forum.
Sorry...think that was me, just remove "Fuzzbox" from that post and replace with "L7", :D

The Way It Used To Be...how this was ignored as a single is beyond me, absolutely stunning track !!!

Re: Fuzzbox

Weren't they on "The Word" many years ago (UK Channel 4 music show) and the bass player actually got her "fuzzbox" out for the viewing audience to see...Terry Christian nearly had a heart attack. I'm sure their full name was "We've Got A Fuzzbox and We're Going To Use It" Here's one of their tracks....

Re: Cracking homemade Burn remix

I know he splits opinion on here most of the time but Jose Cruz does some fantastic mixes of the boys songs and over the years has done some absolute belters, i actually look forward to hearing what he has done when a new PSB single or album is released. It's clear to see he really is a super fan of...

Ausfahrt = EXIT

I'm a little bit concerned that the word "Ausfahrt" shows up multiple times in the video for Dreamland, The word translates as "EXIT" in english...on the same day we get a Greatest Hits tour, am i reading too much into this, are the boys thinking of stopping after the new album. Maybe it's just beca...

Re: Rate "Dreamland"

4/10 for me, it's not great but it's not "Winner" levels of bad, it's just "OK", sounds like a lot of other stuff out there and will no doubt get swallowed up by the generic reggaeton sounding abominations in the singles charts. I hope the fact Years and Years are involved will mean the Boys back ca...

Re: Which last PSB song made you feel excited (like in the old days)?

The Way It Used To Be made the hairs on the back of my neck stand up when i first heard it and it still makes me feel the same way, More recently when i heard Burn it was a real WOW moment.

Re: Name the next Pet Shop Boys album

I'm still going for Conductor

I think this album will have a more orchestral feel somehow and it's double meaning will fit in well with the Price Trilogy

Re: PSB most certainly do excellent "intros"...what's your favourite?

Left to my own devices Fugitive (Richard X extended mix from Fundamentalism) Here (PSB new extended mix from Disco 3) This must be the place iv'e waited years to leave Yester...

Re: PSB EDINBURGH MUSICAL SHOW

I live just outside Edinburgh but actually don't have much interest in this, i wasn't that taken with Closer to Heaven to be honest (although i loved Shameless) so this doesn't really do it for me, glad the boys are branching out to the people who did enjoy cth though.
