Pet Shop Boys aren't postmodern, they merely flirt with it. Neil says that their version - as oppossed to a remix - is the definitive version of their songs, in postmodenity there is no original according to Baudrillard whom they reference on DJ Culture. I think the problem with postmodernism is that alot of people don't really understand what it is but because it has been the the vogue sociological/philiosophical reference point for the past thirty years those who feel that they should be in the know like to use the term. Whilst an interesting movement artistically it is a dangerous one politically in the sense that it lends itself to a kind of relativist position(s).
Hello my name is Neil Tennant and I'm Chris Lowe and we're of the Pet Shop Boys.

I may be ignorant about Postmodernism but couldn't even flirting with it be seen as a postmodern act!?

I think if I was spending £25 on the vinyl, I'd want a better tracklisting perhaps with a load of rare mixes/tracks.

Bought them both for the collection. CD track confirmed as Dance Mix. I got the book too. Not sure of the concept, but the LP and CD have an early 'Now' series feel about them. Interesting that the LP and CD have quite different tracklistings, and also that there is some remastered Malcolm McLaren which bodes well for some (surely) imminent re-issues.

Good stuff. The cover art inside the album and CD shows the PSB West End girls cover art, but sadly the essay in the sleeve notes doesn't mention the Boys. By the way the current Annie Lennox ''House of Annie'' exhibition is also considered part of the Postmodernism exhibition and she is featured in the Postmodernism exhibition itself, but I think the Boys are not, sadly (although I have yet to look around).

As far as the concept, the cover art of the Postmodernism release is based on Jean-Paul Goude and Antonio Lopez's connstructivist maternity dress for Grace Jones. 1979. (The photo of Grace Jones in that dress is used to advertise the exhibition.).

I agree about the 'Now' series feel.

There is a tie for this in with V and A Enterprises and EMI, so maybe other popular culture related exhibitions in the future will see some interesting compilations.

I thought PSB were Pop Art, not Postmodern.

Postmodernism basically means that any old crap can be considered to be as important as the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. It's why Tracey Emin is a multi-millionaire.
