Re: Discovery 1994 - DVD/CD-Release

Well, that's not precisely the truth. Release was filmed but wasn't released at all, although there's some filming online. Strictly spoken, even Electric was filmed.

Re: Discovery 1994 - DVD/CD-Release

Chances are if video material of the omitted songs had existed they surely would have included it as some sort of bonus on the current DVD release? Clearly that's what I'm missing most.

That could be good
That would actually be my third choice after Roosevelt and Coma. Bicep's latest record is ace!

Re: Do you think a producer like Mark Ronson could work for PSB?

Pet Shop Boys should work with Marius Lauber and let Roosevelt produce their next record. He's young, surely affordable, grew up with total confusion (associated with Kompakt) and he pretty much knows how to write and produce gorgeous electronic pop music. He plays multiple instruments, is good at s...

Re: What if? Neil's career in the 1970's

I don't want to come across that ignorant but just like Neil said about The White Striples: "Ultimately, I'm not interested."

It's good that it all started in the mid 80s.

Re: April Fools' joke: New Electronic single Entre Nous and mini album FOuRTH

Well, it sure could, but probably won't :-o I mean, it's exactly the April Fools' story that lead to this little conversation.

Anyway, do as you like. I'll listen to Up against it in the meantime.

Re: New Electronic single Entre Nous and mini album FOuRTH

In my humble opinion, there is no plausible reason whatsoever for closing this thread. People who are able to read will know and understand. May I dare assume this holds true for everyone on this board? Also, interesting and somewhat on-topic contributions have already been and probably will be made...

Re: Recording of DJ Culture and Was It Worth It?

Maybe that's an unpopular opinion to share in this forum but it has been on their most recent tour that I thought the way they reinterpreted and programmed older material (i.e. the hits) sounded incredibly weak. It appeared to me that absolute bangers like Domino Dancing, Always on my mind et al. lo...

Re: Sophie Ellis Bextor - It’s a Sin

Is there actually someone in need of your "instruction"?

If people don't enjoy something they're very welcome to tell, say so, and comment on this as well as give the reasons why.

Re: Sophie Ellis Bextor - It’s a Sin

In spite of sounding like an old crock who's grown bitter over the years it appears pretty fun to me analysing how I feel about the performance of a pop star who's a public person and who's output therefore is open for debate and critique. Much more depressing than SEB in all her way are the few peo...

Re: Sophie Ellis Bextor - It’s a Sin

Right, there's nothing subtle, creative, or poptastic about it. And that's why it's dead boring as much as the reason why I feel bored. Plus, the vocal performance is weak and the kids are embarrassing. Hopefully, the kids won't be embarrassed themselves in years to come when they'll possibly stumbl...

Re: Sophie Ellis Bextor - It’s a Sin

It's indeed jump on the bandwagon to perform It's a sin. Otherwise I'm not interested in her videos and didn't know she's been performing that way ever since the pandemic started. However, it's not appealing to me either way.

Re: Sophie Ellis Bextor - It’s a Sin

Personally speaking, I've got to admit that it's quite possibly the most annoying cover version / video I've seen in quite some time as it's basically some highly uninterested and confused kids standing around a somewhat second class karaoke singer with a jump on the bandwagon performance. Honestly,...
