Re: Neil Tennant announces new book

Is this book worth buying? Is there any extra info from what you get in Further Listening?

Re: Dricography: Ranking Behaviour

DJ Culture is about the plasticity of meaning, no? The post-modern experience par excellence - everything is surface, nothing is real (because what is realistic or matieral is "terribly old-fashioned", after all)... An when nothing is what it seems - where war can be a game or a holiday (cf. Baudri...

Re: Dricography: Ranking Behaviour

DJ Culture video is an absolutely brilliant slice of their "Performance" ethos of the time. One of their best. The track is intellectual Neil at his finest, and the whole thing threatens to come crashing down in over-produced glory. But no, I'm still not even sure what the song is about.

Re: Dricography: Ranking Behaviour

If they began in 1999 they would sound like All Star by Smash Mouth? There's been some speculation....

Re: 30 YEARS OF INTROSPECTIVE

I'm Not Scared is like Fugitive. Top A level PSB, yes. But in edited form, without the intros, they lose much of their power.

Re: Pet Shop Boys Performance Tour

I am envious of those who got to see it live. I've seen every US tour except that one. Probably due to the fact that I was 10 at the time. My live experience versus the DVD/youtube: Nightlife: Really great live. DVD is pretty good, despite the naysayers. Release: Love comes quickly sounded good. I w...

Re: Dricography: Ranking Nightlife

There are some very duff tracks on the album. But have always liked Footsteps. I guess the "footsteps in the dark, only love can break your heart" part isn't the best, but the rest of the song has gorgeous production. One of the best bridges of all time too.

Re: Dricography: Ranking Nightlife

I don't think In Denial will be making Drico's list, rightfully.

Closer to Heaven is near the top of the era for me. Not much depth, but the production, oh the production. If the album didn't open with that 1-2-3 punch it would have very little to support it's existence.

Could happen. She's a fan. She tweets about their lyrics. Who knows.

Re: Dricography: Ranking Introspective

I know both of the backing singers in that TOTP performance and they are not happy about the comment Drico.
