Re: Electric Show on DVD..???

This is basic internet forum etiquette, nothing to do with trendy social media. https://en.scratch-wiki.info/wiki/Necropost Been this way since at least the early 00's, before social media. It's a big faux pas. I've been on forums since 2000 and indeed have come across members who get annoyed when ...

Re: Any crazy hanging out stories with Neil/Chris?

I have heard some entertainers will be really engaging with someone if the person makes no mention of their fandom and just chats them up whereas sometimes people who make it known they are huge fans will kinda grate on their nerves. i can vouch for this. i have met many musicians, celebrities, and...

Re: Any crazy hanging out stories with Neil/Chris?

Neil and Chris showed up at the club with their small posse around 30 mins after arriving, and I got to spend about 15 min talking to Chris one-on-one while observing people dancing on the dancefloor. He definitely has a sarcastic sense of humor and bit of a smart ass at times, and overall it was a...

Re: Literally and Versus America musings.

i just remember that i had a hard time reading them originally. i find Chris Heath's writing "difficult" to understand sometimes. this is probably due to the fact that i have a slight form of dyslexia. being more of a techie, i really wanted to know more about the music side of things on the tour. i...

Re: PSB with Electronic (Live @ Dodgers Stadium 08.04.90)

an acquaintance of mine recorded this show for me by hiding a tape recorder in his hat. he would go to all sorts of concerts just to record them. i haven't heard my recording since he gave it to me later that night. i think it sounds roughly similar to the ones that are floating around out there tho...

Having another vocalist completely perform a song while Neil takes a break is one the coolest things they’ve done in concert.
i would have to disagree... only because i really wanted to hear My October Symphony performed by Neil on the Performance Tour, and not Derek Green.

Re: Rock's Backpages podcast with Neil Tenant (1 hour of interview)

Love how Neil said that the "second album" by Culture Club was Culture Club's "Rumours" album and then Neil couldn't name the title of Culture Club's second album...which of course was the fabulous "Colour by Numbers"...https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colour_by_Numbers ... well he was quoting someone...

Re: New Pet Shop Order Boys

Wasn’t there a Depeche show in 90/91 where Electronic opened and Neil sang? Am I making that up? Yes I believe at Dodgers Stadium in 1990. The PSB also played with them but it was billed as Electronic. correct, and i was at 1 of those shows. PSB came on stage to perform Patience of a Saint, and Get...

Electronic was a side project. A whole new Pets album is much, much more exciting.
i'd actually rather see a new Electronic album, than a new PSB, or a new New Order album. that's just me though.
