Looking at this, it seems that PSB played Opportunities, Rent and Flamboyant live on XFM in 2004. Did anyone hear these, or even better, record them?

I've waited a long time to hear these, amazing. The opportunities is great, although always liked the piano bit. And yes, the rent version is great, its how I imagine it sounded before Stephen Hague got his hands on it (which is better, but its still a very cool, and refreshingly different version..

I was listening to these again tonight. It's really ashame that Neil's voice was so poor when these were recorded as the backing tracks are great. Possibly still available here: http://www.xfm.co.uk/article.asp?id=16076
And tryin' to figure out what happened to 'Germaine Propaine'
"He couldn't have fell off that hard" Ain't no way
"What happened to the way you was rappin' when you was scandalous
That Canibus turned into a television evangelist"
Plus he raps with his regular voice [BOOSH! BOOSH!]
[BOOSH! BOOSH!] (What was that?) Pet Shop Boys

This gig really should be released. I'd love to hear Nervously - had forgotten they played that. And was the version of I'm Not Scared truncated?
Did anyone on here actually go to this gig?

Hi, any chance someone can let me have the mp3's of the XFM session ... always wondered if these were available in some downloadable form. I really like the electro version of Rent. Saying that ... I also liked the Fundamental tour version.

Cheers.

for the record:

xfm = barfly! The ones played in that medley at the Barfly, are the very same (4 tracks), they played on Radio X FM. There are no recordings of the ENTIRE Barfly gig around - means: nobody was lucky enough to record the show!

Entry on http://www.psb-catalogue.com

Code: Select all

  Live at the Camden Barfly (London, UK)
  [6 Mar 2004] live appearance

  [Live appearance playing a small live show with a powerbook as part of a 
   series of shows benefiting the charity Warchild. The show lasted just over 
   an hour. All the songs were performed in new versions reprogrammed by Chris 
   and Neil on Chris' Apple Powerbook. The medley at the end consisted of the 
   versions performed on XFM Radio. Several of the songs were being played in 
   concert for the first time. It was the first full show they have ever played 
   as a duo with no other musicians. Setlist: "Try It (I'm In Love With A Married 
   Man)" / "Tonight Is Forever" / "We’re The Pet Shop Boys" / "Jealousy" / "I’m 
   Not Scared" / "Being Boring" / "In Private" / "Nervously" / "It’s A Sin" / 
   "Love Is A Catastrophe" / Encore: A Medley with "Opportunities (Let's Make 
   Lots Of Money)" / "Rent" / "Flamboyant" / "West End Girls"]
...tonight he's working in the midnight shift, arriving at ten
learning how slowly twelve can turn into seven AM...
