Re: Reissues project

Wait... there were art prints available in the UK?! Son of a... I was in England for the last two weeks. We were trying to figure out if we'd be able to buy the CDs while we were over there but when it was looking rough I decided to just order them from Amazon back home. So annoyed... I would have l...

Re: 2017: "New Batch" of reissued & remastered albums w/ Further Listening albums

The John Peel tracks and Believe/Song for Guy pushes me towards non-believing. Believe/Song for Guy was performed on a tv show and I'm not aware of a studio demo of this. It seems unlikely they'd include a song like this, played live, sourced from a tv live performance for a set like this. Same with...

Netflix has a new series coming out on Feb 10 called Abstract: The Art of Design. One of the featured artists is Es Devlin. Trailer here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DYaq2sWTWAA Now, I don't know if there will be any discussion on her designs for PSB, but the trailer does appear to have imagery ...

Re: The Super Tour

I love Burn but I'm afraid I found it hard to enjoy because I couldn't hear the performance because of the people behind me.

I'm really hoping a pro shot video of the concert will show up on youtube or somewhere because I would love to be able to relive the show without distraction.

Re: The Super Tour

Saw them last night in Chicago with my family. Experience was marred by a group of people immediately behind us who talked through much of the first half of the concert. Like, conversation. They weren't singing along, just chatting. The guys next to us were getting really annoyed to the point where ...

Re: What was your first experience/remember with Pet Shop Boys

We didn't have cable back in the day so I watched a show called Friday Night Videos on the local independent station. There was also a Saturday morning music video show. I remember watching Opportunities and liking the song, but not enough to go buy it. My first PSB record was the 12" for It's a Sin...

Re: Literally 42

Unsure if I'm due an issue or not from my fanclub subscription. Decided to check the site any maybe order one anyway... sold out. Dammit. This going to be the way, isn't it. You need to be on top of it otherwise you'll miss out.

Re: "Super tour" live dates

I'm really confused. I thought tickets were going on PreSale Thursday (in the US; Chicago specifically). I just saw a tweet that said pre-sale is "tomorrow" (which is Thursday) but I instantly thought of the UK time difference and thought it was a post from yesterday. I panicked and jumped on Ticket...

Re: Japanese Super CD

EDIT: Sure enough the CDJapan page for Super, that for weeks mentioned it had an exclusive bonus track and said it was Into thin air has now removed that mention so its no more special than what we'll get in the west. Isn't Into Thin Air a regular album track? It's appearing in the tracklist on bot...

Re: Nightlife Extra CD2

Made My Excuses and Left is a masterpiece - from Lowe singing into his phone on waterloo bridge to THOSE strings, it's genius. Footsteps for me is a self pitying dirge I like it but I also find the intro too long and flat. On my iTunes I set it to start at 1:48, when the proper lyrics begin. Yeah, ...

Re: x2 = Nothing

Just because they have their own label doesn't mean they should be throwing out product every couple of months. Let's be reasonable. There is no reason their writing/recording schedule should change because of this.

Re: What PSB songs do your kids like?

PSB in general, really. My oldest was 4 when Fundamental came out. I was working nights from home at the time and he woke up and came downstairs to my office around 4.30a. Fundamental had become available that morning and I had just started listening to it. "Sodom and Gomorrah Show" came on and he i...
