I just hope they have a full album already made waiting to be released the day they´ll be no longer between us (I hope in a distant future)
Called "Posthumous", obviously...

National Review has an essay:

"Give Stupidity a Chance" makes for a great Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez slogan. :lol:

Re: New EP on April: Agenda

Socialist morons hate the fact that their daft ideology has been proven to cause poverty and misery wherever it's been applied. In the USA they walk their dogs, in Venezuela they eat them. How is this relevant? Do you imply Pet Shop Boys are socialists? Well, so am I. And isn't the cause of Venezue...

Re: New EP on April: Agenda

Great cover art for the Agenda EP. It has a Hipgnosis vibe. The lyric video for Give Stupidity with its images of a North Korean parade is remarkably similar to the unofficial Delusions of Grandeur video. The lyric video for On Social Media is amusing, but I'm underwhelmed by the music and lyrics fo...

Re: 'Yes' and 'Elysium', will be released on Oct 20th, 2017

Never heard of She Pops (Demo) - any info on this? Literally issue 39. Diary February 25. Stuart work on "She pops". Neil: As in body-popping. It sounds a bit like a Korean or Japanese pop song. I don't know if he made mention of it again elsewhere. :think: I fully expect "She pops" to be the only ...

Re: Undertow: Lyrics and Discussion (SPOILERS)

After a month of intense SUPER listening, this is the track that has grown the most for me. (Conversely, "Happiness" has worn out its welcome and I tend to start the album with track 2 now.) Although I liked "Undertow" well enough during my first few listens, and have loved the rising chords of its ...

Re: Name a track of each PSB albums that you always skip

As a rule, I don't skip any tracks - even PSB's lesser numbers are perfectly listenable. Having said that, I'll admit that I tend to press "stop" on Please a little way into "Live Together," which is my least favorite on that album. I've been known to not always listen to Introspective 's "Always on...

Re: The Dictator Decides, Lyrics, etc. (SPOILERS)

Interesting about Vivaldi, but, to my ears, the music reminds me of popular French music - I can imagine Charles Aznavour singing this. I do have to say - the way the soprano's voice keeps getting more and more processed-sounding at the end is perhaps the creepiest, eeriest few seconds in the entire...

Re: "SUPER" - album reviewed by forum members

I'm buying the CD in 12 hours or so, but decided to follow the Spotify link and give myself the premiere now. Although I'd already listened to Happiness, The Pop Kids, Inner Sanctum, and Burn before tonight, the remaining 8 tracks are all brand-new to me. (And I still have Say It to Me and Into Thin...

Re: Burn is quite good, isn't it?

Broke down and searched for "Burn" on YouTube. The upload I found was a minute longer than what's listed for the album. I started listening and thought, Wow, this is really sly-sounding. Then the vocals came in....and did not sound like PSB at all! Yet the lyrics were correct. Then I realized that i...
