Some of the finest words on the album include ‘pomp’, ‘cake’, ‘superfluous’, ‘mistranslation’, ‘manoeuvre’ (several times) and ‘leather’, which actually appears in MORE THAN ONE SONG.

Re: Hotspot reviews

They are not the wisp that Neil Tennant sings in the incomparably gaudy, alarmist opening song “Will-O-The-Wisp”: The Pet Shop Boys are rather a lighthouse, a star in the dark, a solid castle.

Re: Hotspot era design

It’s part of the DIN typeface. Can’t remember if it was a standard on my Mac or if I picked up my version from work, but shouldn’t be too difficult to find a version online. I’ll double-check the weight of the font tomorrow. DIN Medium is the specific font. BY MY RECKONING the album cover text is s...

Nice new photo being used by HMV - not seen this one yet but apologies if it’s been posted already!
That’s the image they used to outline the silhouette on the Dreamworld tour poster! Interesting to see the original .

Do Funko Pops have bobbly heads? Is THAT why they exist/people buy them?

Re: 3rd single "Monkey Business" (Jan 2020)

Hotspot seemed like a terrible title seven weeks ago but I’m really into it now. They have such powers of legitimacy.
