Re: "Cricket Wife" initial commentary

I've had some further reflection on this piece: Time has stopped The air is still Nothing moves or ever will Present tense is future past…. This is a word perfect description of how it felt to me sitting in my garden in London during the first lockdown. Nothing moving - no wind, no planes, no birds ...

Re: "Cricket Wife" initial commentary

First listen thoughts ... Four to the floor banger this aint! :lol: I love the music throughout - there is a brooding darkness here, lots of swells and dynamics and the distinct sections come together really well. Neils' audio track is like others have pointed out a bit out of the mix with the rest ...

Re: Time to get ready for "Annually 2021"...out May 7, 2021

Interesting!

Was thinking this was a companion piece to 'The way through the woods' but sounds like it's a different beast altogether.

Now where is that postman?!

Re: Pet Shop Boys - Electric Ballroom

Not sure about that Dog. I think these are two distinct things - I suspect the Back to our roots gig is likely to be a more stripped down event with limited bells and whistles and something more suited to the smaller Electric Ballroom venue. Just a hunch but of course your thinking may also be corre...

Re: Pet Shop Boys - Electric Ballroom

So some dates have been announced for some of the other artists ... earliest being Sep 2021 for The Slow Readers Club. Looking hopeful that some of us might get to see PSB perform this year after all ... fingers crossed! https://pbs.twimg.com/media/E0nNQcmXoAAubIm?format=jpg&name=medium https://...

Re: New Quietus article

Truth is as hardcore fans ... we can all pick holes in a list like this.

The boys have spoiled us with such a vast number of tracks that its near impossible to please all of us at any of the time!

Re: Will UNITY TOUR be delayed or canceled?

I suspect they have hedged their bets and have already locked in dates at the venues for 2022 ... my gut feeling is this will be postponed as the demand was through the roof when tickets first went on sale. Also, I see a lot of buzz from New Order about wanting to play live again and they have run s...

Re: DREAMWORLD Greatest Hits Tour RESCHEDULED until 2022

The Unity tour is finely balanced I think. I know the US are powering ahead with vaccine rollout though Canada which is where the tour starts in late September is lagging a bit. Also noted that 'test' events are going ahead in MSG New York currently and I think all eyes on Justin Bieber (never thoug...
