Re: PSB @ Zara

This was a missed opportunity in my opinion. The shirts are well made, and the offbeat choices work as fashion pieces. But the actual type of shirt is a huge misfire. The oversized shirt is trendy for a very specific demographic, but it's not the stylish subset of the Pet Shop Boys' demographic. I ...

Re: Discography 12'' boxed set

Stunning - love that :D

Well done herts101 ... hopefully the 'management' will get sight of this and you'll get some kudos from Neil and Chris.

Re: Pet Shop Boys remix Paul Weller

Yep the lack of variety on the remix makes for a dull listen after the first few minutes.

I'm sure the boys are keeping all the good stuff for themselves ... and us of course so not in the slightest bit concerned

Re: Pet Shop Boys remix Paul Weller

Like it!

Musically it sounds like it could have sat nicely on Electric. Nice vocal additions from Neil. Goes all Giorgio Moroder at the end :dance:

Probably not enough variation for the running time but definitely the best thing Paul Weller has done in ages ;-)

They literally provide this service for you on the Zara website (M = 98 cm, etc.). What are you complaining about and why?
Sorry - didn't think to check! Well that's me told :)

Re: PSB @ Zara

We can send billionaires to 'space' ... but to create t-shirts to a standard sizing is beyond us :roll:

Wish manufacturers would include chest measurements in CM as well as S/M/L/XL etc.

Re: Will UNITY TOUR be delayed or canceled?

Brandon might even be inclined to cameo … a vocal admirer of both bands

He will attend as a fan at the very least I reckon

Re: PSB @ Zara

I'm not in love with them to be honest. Not much thought has gone into these e.g. the small font text on the Suburbia shirt is a bit lazy and doesn't fit well. I'd buy that one straight away if it just had Suburbia written on it. Similarly, the Format one would work better with the logo only. EDIT: ...

Re: Bilingual - originally planned track list

I don't actually mind Electricity - there is a slinkiness to this track and the samples add atmosphere but I find it jarring on the album.

Metamorphosis ... the rap is awkward and the female backing vocals are OTT. A definite skipper for me.

Greetings, See here: https://www.discogs.com/Pet-Shop-Boys-Thats-The-Way-Life-Is/release/1819497 Retro. :) Very interesting, thanks! :D But even that track order doesn't seem to fit. Agreed. Metamorphosis and Electricity are an issue on this album for me ... should have been left as b sides (at bes...

Re: Do you think PSB need a new release before the tour?

Need? No as they’ve sold a shed load of tickets ….

But I fully expect new material before the tour kicks off

Pet Shop Boys on Youtube

Yes - good listen

Thanks for posting.

I have always loved the ‘Broken Heart’ track by Spiritualized - nice use of Pachelbel’s Canon in D with the strings

Re: Pet Sheeran Boys

Guess Ed has been watching the Weekend vids on repeat over lockdown and has decided to muscle in on the same vibe and imagery.
