Re: Australian News Roundup

Care to elaborate? I don’t fancy subscribing to this trashy rag just to read one article. I didn't subscribe either, but the article shows in full if that same link is opened from the Twitter post of the author (I only realised it requires subscription, if opened otherwise, after opening it from my...

Re: Australian News Roundup

Had to dig deep to find this old thread! Haven't seen this posted anywhere, but Double J have done a 2 hour J Files special on Pet Shop Boys. It was broadcast last night apparently, although I missed it, found out too late. Only found out thanks to a notification on Facebook. It is being broadcast a...

Re: Smile If You Dare book launch on Thurs in Islington - COME

Nice one Ramzy! I would come were it not for the fact I live in the wrong hemisphere. I'll definitely be buying it though, sounds intriguing. I hope you've invited Neil and Chris :wink:

Re: Pet Shop Boys Chart Watch Topic

SUPER enters the US album charts at #58 which is much lower than Electric's 26. Are there any sales figures to compare? It's because of streaming. How does streaming work with albums, does anyone know? Do you have to listen to the entire album from start to finish for it to count? Or can you just l...

Re: Australian News Roundup

As already mentioned in the chart watch thread, Super is #12 on this weeks Aria Album chart! From memory I think Electric only got to 22 or 23. You have to go back to Bilingual to find a better chart result. :up:

Re: "SUPER" - CHART RESULTS

#12 in Australia!

If I'm not mistaken this is the best result since Bilingual hit #3.

Re: Australian News Roundup

Sydney Morning Herald gives Super a 4/5 review in today's Spectrum section. They've yet to post it to the website. Anyone else seen any local reviews?

Super is already #3 on Australian iTunes! I don't think any album since Yes has charted this high.

Re: Australian News Roundup

Picked up a copy from JB Hi Fi in Pitt Street Mall in Sydney late this afternoon. How exciting! Will have to wait a couple of hours before I get to play it. Can't wait though!

Re: Australian News Roundup

I then checked the official site and no, they didn't go there. http://www.petshopboys.co.uk/tour/199411 My recollection is that they did play Canberra & Newcastle, although I wouldn't stake my life on it, it was so long ago ...
