Greetings drunk,

In Melbourne, yes. I'm sure others in cities feel likewise... It's the country areas with high fuel loads (e.g. lots of dense, dry bushland) near them who need to be careful.

Are you worried about the fires?

If you stick to bog cities (Melbourne, Sydney, etc) and travel by air, all should be OK.

The other day the city in Melbourne was fogged up with smoke from the bushfires, but as above we're fine. It's the rural areas, and really other states that are going through the ordeal.
Everyone's a little worried, there's constant talk of contributing donations, updates on things like death tolls, etc.

Greetings Sage,

I already have a few of those specific tracks/versions planned (plus a co-DJ who was already very keen to play the Cicero track!) but will try to bring along a few more from your list anyway. Thanks for pulling that together.

Glad to you had a good time Sage. We did too! Actually, the guy I was DJing with is a high school friend who I hadn't seen for over a decade so it was a fantastic way to "reunite", especially given that I was the one responsible for getting him onto Pet Shop Boys in the early 90s.

An early heads up... we're doing a New Order tribute night on Friday March 13th, the night before they play live in Melbourne.

Same place, same time... and of course there'll be a few Electronic and Pet Shop Boys tracks in the mix too!
