...especially the beginning, has always reminded me of NO very much.
Because of the drums? Stephen Morris is terribly under-rated.

Retro. :)
Yes, the opening drum machine and then the NO-esque keyboards that kick in.

Who's going to the meet up?
It sort of snuck up on me, didn't realise it's this week.

Well, of course I'm going. :lol:

Are you coming?... https://www.facebook.com/events/202617077556094/

Pretty excited about playing a mix of hits, fan favourites, collaborations, side-projects etc.

The Unity Tour concept also provides an additional excuse for squeezing in some PSB / Electronic of course. 8)

Greetings,

Unfortunately attendance was hit a bit due to Coronavirus fears, but it was still a good night.

Here's a Spotify Playlist with some of what I played... far from all of it though because a lot simply wasn't on Spotify.

Pet Shop Boys tracks played by me were the Phil Harding mix of Always On My Mind and the Arthur Baker dub of Suburbia. My co-DJ played Young Offender (Jam & Spoon, and original version), Absolutely Fabulous and Up Against It.

Thanks again for people's suggestions throughout this topic!

Retro. :)

Looks like a good playlist.
I went home and had a nap, too knackered.

I'll go to the actual New Order gig though, thank god it hasn't been cancelled.

Are you guys going to do another PSB night?

Good question. We're going to wait until the Coronavirus nonsense has stopped before proposing another tribute night. Next cab off the rank after that will likely be Depeche Mode or an act from the Britpop era.

That said, we have linked our shows to special events (e.g. Hotspot release, New Order tour)... so if PSB tour that could well bring one forward. It was good that we had the successful PSB night before the Coronavirus impacted NO night, so we've at least proven to the venue that the Tribute format works.

Retro. :)

Flipping the question round I highly recommend a listen to Miracle Cure (Genussmittel Mix) on the Mark Reeder / Blank & Jones album Reordered. Bernard is on vocals. The track sounds like a pumping remix of Rent.
