Re: Pet Shop Boys (with Ant and Dec) in 1996

They demoed a song for them called "Fat Northern Bastards" which has never surfaced. The chorus was a riff on "Barbara Ann" by the Beach Boys and went "Bababa, bababa-bastard!" I wonder if it will ever turn-up?

Re: Shorter songs - Annoying

I'm in total agreement with shorter songs being irritating; there's no time to explore the track and the components that compose it. If one goes back to Please, Actually, and Behavior many, if not most of the tracks were in the four to six minute range. Even most of PSB's singles and b-sides from th...

Re: The New Album Info Thread

I think they want to drop it when there's less market competition. The last time they dropped an album in the autumn or close to was Elysium, and that didn't turn out too well. Sure, the hardcore fanbase will buy it anytime, but there's always a certain number of people to interest who are only marg...

Re: The New Album Info Thread

It's possible there still could be an announcement in early July and a first single drop in August for a September release as that's how Elysium went, but I'm starting to think they may have more than one collection or set of songs and they're not yet certain what direction this album should go in, ...

Re: Pet Shop Boys - Hyde Park Sep 15th 2019

Of course, this is wishful thinking, but we could be looking at a repeat of 2012/2013 where they dropped an album accompanied by a single show and delayed the tour to support it in order to quickly record and drop a second album the following year.

Re: The New Album Info Thread

Judging by the timeline, which is similar to the recording of Elysium, it will most likely be in September. I wouldn't be surprised if they stopped back in LA after the far east tour to finish it up. It's probably done by now and they've moved on to the art work/PR/release planning stage.

Re: PSB announce ‘Inner Sanctum’ live DVD/BLU RAY/CD

Anyone else disappointed with this cheap sleeve? It's quite impossible to remove the discs without damaging the sleeve and/or discs. Whatever happened to proper plastic cases???

Re: New EP in April: Agenda

I'm curious to hear if the mastering for the CD is different than the lossless digital download I purchased in February. The criticisms that the audio is overly compressed and lacks detail, at least on the download, is spot on.

Re: Original track listing for “Disco One” from EMI America

I don't know if anyone remembers the old MUSE music catalog from back in the 1980s, but I distinctly remember that old industry catalog's entry for the "Disco" album instead used the title "Disco One" so the press release is most likely legitimate.

Re: New EP in April: Agenda

Regardless of the relative quality of the Agenda EP, I'm excited this release signals a potential change in future release strategy. I've always admired indie labels such as Mute that released non-standard output such as EPs and always wished PSB would release an EP or mini-album inbetween albums. I...
