Re: New version of 'Purple Zone' by Soft Cell and PSB

An extra track from the Purple Zone release - Soft Cell’s cover of X-Ray Spex’s The Day The World Turned Day-Glo - seems to mistakenly have had its lyrics added to the PSB official site: https://www.petshopboys.co.uk/lyrics/th ... ed-day-glo

Issey miyake

Chris, in Annually: “Isn't Issey Miyake a genius? He used to be an architect - as indeed did I - which I think explains his sculptural skills.” Thinking of the iconic flip-up shuttered sunglasses worn by Chris Lowe in 1986 as part of a look that inspired Eric Watson and Mark Farrow and made the slee...

Patrick Bateman wrote:Steve Wright and his 'posse' were pretty homphobic in the 80s - I didn't listen to his show regularly but there was certainly an element of that in his PSB skits.
Yes that is my memory as well.

Re: Radio 1 jingles

Hello! Speaking of jingles, several years ago I heard something like "PET SHOP PET SHOP PET SHOP BOYS" between two of their songs. Does it ring a bell to you? I don't know if it was an official jingle or a sound created to mix songs together, but I thought it was pretty cool! :-) Was it t...

I recall Steve Wright didn’t like Pet Shop Boys.

Re: New EP incoming?

They are not able to create a complex and multi-layered album because they don't have as many producers and engineers as the had in the 80's and 90's. Come on Nickname… you know better than that. x It's obvious the sound of the last albums is weaker than the sound of the old ones and I'm not talkin...

Re: Unity: Pet Shop Boys / New Order synergies

I'd say it was more likely that Neil and Bernard (and possibly Chris) would play the encore at The Killers show at MSG. I just don't see the other members of NO (some of whom are relatively new to the band) indulging the lead singer to perform a couple of hits from his solo project with a couple of...

Re: Unity: Pet Shop Boys / New Order synergies

Neil gave Movement an 8 out of 10 in 1981. Nice read by the way. I love the overlap in both bands. I always try to explain this to a colleague who is a big New Order fan and thinks nothing of Pet Shop Boys. Thanks for that. However much I like Movement I’m not sure it’s better than Power, Corruptio...
