Re: Time to get ready for "Annually 2021"...out May 7, 2021

I’ve never bought Annually because I can’t afford it. Does that mean I’m not a fan? Of course it doesn't. But there are people here who say they are not buying because they are not interested — not because they can't afford. Not interested in spending money on certain products does not equal being ...

Re: Time to get ready for "Annually 2021"...out May 7, 2021

I used to be a completist, but then other priorities in my life took over. My CD singles collection is patchy now because I haven't bought any of the CD singles from Elysium, Electric, Super and Hotspot. I just didn't need them and I wouldn't be playing them. I buy their albums on CD, download anyt...

Re: Time to get ready for "Annually 2021"...out May 7, 2021

FFS fans have their own reasons for not buying any of the merchandise PSB put out there. I used to be a completist, but then other priorities in my life took over. My CD singles collection is patchy now because I haven't bought any of the CD singles from Elysium, Electric, Super and Hotspot. I just ...

Re: Sophie Ellis Bextor - It’s a Sin

Well, this thread went sideways fast for no reason. Is nobody entitled to an opinion on this forum? What I don't get is the endless negativity. If you don't like something, you don't *have* to say anything. This forum has loads of threads where you can focus on the things you do like. I haven't pop...

Re: Sophie Ellis Bextor - It’s a Sin

Personally speaking, I've got to admit that it's quite possibly the most annoying cover version / video I've seen in quite some time as it's basically some highly uninterested and confused kids standing around a somewhat second class karaoke singer with a jump on the bandwagon performance. Honestly...

Re: Sophie Ellis Bextor - It’s a Sin

My memory is a bit hazy, but was there talk of a collaboration many years ago? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk I think PSB submitted a demo for either her first or second album. There was an interview, maybe on PopJustice, where she said it arrived too late. Wasn't there a rumour that the demo w...

Re: Sophie Ellis Bextor - It’s a Sin

Wtf is wrong with this place. The first two comments are negative.... 🙄 She does these shows every couple of weeks from her kitchen. She takes suggestions from fans on Instagram. She obviously covered It's a sin because of the series finale being on TV last night. It would make no sense to cover Bei...

Re: Somewhere DVD

I was disappointed only my shoulder is in the extra footage, waiting at the stage door. Though I am on the front row of the concert! Does anyone else remember Neil and Chris afterwards just mingling at an outdoor bar? After the show I attended, I got my programme signed by Neil, Chris, Dainton and ...

Re: DREAMWORLD Greatest Hits Tour RESCHEDULED until 2022

The thought of another greatest hits compilation bores me to tears unfortunately.

Ultimate, PopArt, Discography, and the "This is Pet Shop Boys" playlist on Spotify have them covered for your average music listener these days surely.

Re: Time to get ready for "Annually 2021"...

Hmmm, is there actually anything to write about in the next issue? I mean nothing has happened. Maybe we’ll get a feature of Neil pottering around his garden showing off all his new plants 🤔 Transcribed audio commentary for "It Couldn't Happen Here" :-) Or a CD of audio commentary that ca...

Re: DREAMWORLD Greatest Hits Tour RESCHEDULED until 2021

Given the advancing years of the fanbase, many who bought tickets last year will be dead by then - pandemic or not. Or may simply have forgotten. Drico. :lol: On a serious note, I think now is the time for them to start thinking about some kind of live stream. A performance of their/our favourite b...

Well it's not really started yet. It'll be the longest run-up to a tour. It'd better be bloody fantastic!
