Re: Pet Shop Boys Community - Demographics (final results)

Greetings, Good stuff Nickname. Probably worth people bearing in mind that these are the demographics of our community, and shouldn't necessary be assumed to extend similarly out to the broader Pet Shop Boys base. I say that because discussion forums themselves typically attract a certain demographi...

Re: PSB Digital stores delivery issues

Greetings,

My copy arrived in Melbourne, Australia yesterday :!: ... but when the packaging looks like this is it any surprise it gets delayed? :roll:

Re: Discovery review

Greetings, I bet than in 1992 he was paranoid about Erasure. It's understandable. Take a look at their respective UK singles chart performances for singles released from 1988-1992, as the PSB "Imperial Phase" began to wane. Erasure Ship Of Fools - 6 Chains Of Love - 11 A Little Respect - 4...

Re: PSB Digital stores delivery issues

Greetings, Still nothing in the letterbox here in Melbourne but Andie's message gives me hope! :up: In the meantime, I've ordered three lots of CDs (2 via Discogs, and 1 direct from the artist) from the UK *after* Annually was supposedly dispatched, and those CDs have all arrived safe and sound.

Re: PSB Digital stores delivery issues

Greetings, Digital Stores giving me the runaround in a similar way to what they're doing to DopeFiend, but I'm not going down without exhausting all possible avenues of inquiry. :wall: If they insist on making things this limited, then they're going to be getting a lot of pushback from dedicated fan...

Re: Could we hope for another PSB transformation and what would it be?

Greetings, Good question. Not sure we can really expect another "transformation" from legacy to anything else. I expect they'll just continue as is (potentially with less touring due to a combination of COVID interruptions and age) until they've had enough. I'm also not convinced that the ...

Re: PSB Digital stores delivery issues

Greetings Wayne,

Keep pushing the line, don't give up. Insist that if it was delivered back to the warehouse then *your* copy exists *there*. It hasn't vanished into thin air, and you don't mind at all that they're re-sending stock that's previously been posted.

Re: PSB Digital stores delivery issues

Greetings Andie,

Not sure. I've ordered a fair few 12" singles through the store before and no issues with those, so I doubt it's size related.

Oh well, good luck mate! Will let you know if I hear anything of interest, either via Australia Post or Digital Stores.

Re: PSB Digital stores delivery issues

Greetings, EVERY SINGLE YEAR they balls up my Annually delivery (even though, somehow, every other PSB Store delivery gets here without issue). No different this year, and in fact, I didn't realise it had been so long since they were dispatched. I've followed Wayne's lead now in following up. If the...

Re: Who PSB haven't collaborated with

Greetings, Not a new collaboration strictly speaking, but I've always wondered why Bernard Sumner has never appeared on a PSB record? At this point in time, that's probably about the only collaboration I'd be interested in, unless they needed another guitar part from Johnny Marr or Bernard Butler to...

So, if someone wanted... they could totally rip off the drum pattern and bassline from say, Blue Monday or West-End Girls, and that's totally allowable?

Re: Hotspot - Further Listening

Maybe if you look at the timestamp of Jules's comment and then look up the release date for Hotspot the comment might make a bit more sense.
