Re: Pet Shop Boys Scrapbooks - new Facebook page

Love it, thanks. I kept a scrapbook too and weirdly it had a picture from the same photoshoot on the front. I think mine was from Smash Hits though. Most of those pictures are like old friends you never forget. I remember cutting out that cartoon analysis from the Smash Hits yearbook i think. Happy ...

Re: Australian News Roundup

I love Australia. Beautiful country and people. I have also lived and worked in Melbourne for 18mths and spent time in Sydney. All different of course - love Melbourne. I wasn't expecting a 2nd Uk or USA. I just stupidly didn't appreciate how different emmigrating with a family is from travelling. I...

Re: Australian News Roundup

Oh Mary, that hurts. I'm from Birmingham, been here 7yrs. Moved for the family bla bla. Lovely country, all the things you said but where the f**k am i? I went to the same gigs you mentioned and yep the 2nd was better but no, not the same as home. Can't make it back for July because we've promised t...

Re: Australian News Roundup

That's a great result.

JB hifi only ordered one vinyl copy for the main Brisbane store. One copy! I picked up a copy from an out of town store in the end. I was the second one they'd sold. Plenty of cds around though. Even bagged a promo poster.

Re: "SUPER" - album reviewed by forum members

I've only listened twice without dusturbances, and one of these was a dog walk so maybe I should come back later? However, I'm getting, fun, fresh, catchy, modern, free, short, light, clever. It's quite arty? I'm clearly no wordsmith but I just wanted to make a positive comment. I've enjoyed reading...

Re: "In Bits" is a mini masterpiece!!!

I prefer One Hit Wonder. The rhyming thing is strange. Why 'we never saw eye to eye' not just 'never saw eye to eye' which could have fitted? It does feel deliberate but it jars and distracts me. Same in TPK a bit, which by the way i now love. It has really grown on me, worthy first single.

Re: The Pop Kids (Review) - SPOILER

It's ironic they're thought of as ironic I guess. How about saying the lyrics on Electric are more sparse and less observational than previous albums? However, we've still had Love is a bourgeois construct and Invisible on Elysium - lyrical psb gems surely? Maybe the trend to sparse helps with the t...

Re: Super - Track-by-Track Review (SPOILERS)

On balance, the reviews read encouragingly to me. My own personal issue at the moment, hopefully without sounding like a t***, is that since January I've been immersing myself pretty helplessly and almost exclusively in the Bowie catalogue, deviating only as far as Scott Walker (i'm exaggerating but...

Re: Because they are the PET Shop Boys - Pedigree attitude

Interesting that Chris picked Sweet Thing for his favourite Bowie track, a song I've always presumed was about rent boys. Very dark anyway. He would have been about 16 wouldn't he when diamond dogs came out?
