Re: Farrow website

After years of only having one page, with not a lot of detail, the Farrow Design website is fully functional. http://www.farrowdesign.com We must have very different ideas of “fully functional”! It’s a typical designer’s website - looks great (as long as you don’t have any accessibility needs of co...

Re: PSB & Tracey

At last! We know Tracey’s a fan and would like to work with the boys. I’m going to stick my neck out here…I for one would love an album where every track is a PSB/Thorn collaboration.

Thanks! I’m loving the photo of the young Chris in the studio.

Re: Dricography: Ranking Introspective

The fantastic Domino Dancing riff was indeed written by Lewis A. Martineée. Asked and answered in an old issue of Litterally.

Re: Dricography: Ranking Introspective

Hi Tall Thin Man- no, that was completely my fault, I misremembered. Apologies! It is indeed between Left to my own devices and IWAD where the thunderstorm happens. So sorry. I said. Hey Deschanel, don’t worry about it! Sounds like a good excuse for you to give Introspective a play to refresh your ...

Re: Dricography: Ranking Introspective

Has everyone else got a different version of Introspective to me?!

On my version Domino Dancing has sung rather than spoken vocals (apart from the middle bit) and the thunderstorm is between the end of Left to My Own Devices and I Want a Dog. On my copy I’m Not Scared comes after Domino Dancing.

Re: Dricography: Ranking Nightlife

I realise I might be in a minority of one here but I like The only one and Footsteps. I think they fit in well with the sound and mood of Nightlife. They're full of paranoia, insecurity and longing. That's essentially what is at the heart of Nightlife. It's Happiness is an option and Boy Strange th...

Re: Dricography: Ranking Introspective

I’m not getting the vocals on Domino Dancing being largely spoken; they’re sung.

Re: Pet Shop Boys Performance Tour

Performance was the first concert I ever went to and it’s still my favourite. I was 17. It was a Sunday and I caught a coach from Lincoln to the Birmingham N.E.C. for the 90-odd mile trip. I was supposed to be going with my friend who’d got me into a lot of PSB material a few years previously, but h...

Re: Dricography: Ranking Nightlife

A classic case of poor song selection Including For all of us and The ghost of myself alone would have improved it - and dropped the droopy Footsteps and serious piss-poor anodyne shadow of a tune The Only One. It's the only abysmal song in their catalogue. It kind of mopes along like it's heavily ...
