Re: Wedding in Berlin: revival of interest?

Worst PSB song in their history in my opinion. Absolutely terrible. Quite why they put this on the album is frankly beyond me? I've burnt a copy of Hotspot on a CDR and have put Decide in it's place and the album is so much better for it it's unreal!

Absolutely puzzled as to how this made the cut?

Re: Snippets

I was very pessimistic about new album on the back of Burning the Heather, Dreamland and Monkey Business (which in my eyes are nothing special) but the snippets of the other songs have given me new hope! I'm more attracted to their B-sides and album tracks nowadays it's fair to say, although they ha...

Re: 3rd single "Monkey Business" (Jan 2020)

Maybe I'm alone in thinking like this but I've become more a fan of their B-sides and album tracks now bar the odd single here and there. Not really liked the last few singles at all, to be honest, but songs such as Decide I absolutely love. Hoping the album will have some more upbeat songs on it, I...

Re: NY Times article: MASSIVE master tapes loss

I have about 6 external hard drives I use to back all my important stuff on. Although thinking about it a fire would probably ruin all of those! Might hide one in the car or something! Just shows that nothing is truly safe! I take one to work and stick it in the desk drawer. I'm self-employed and w...

Re: NY Times article: MASSIVE master tapes loss

If it happened in 2008 I'm sure Neil and chris would have commented on it by now because they'd certainly be aware of it and it would have had an effect on the Further Listening project as stated by another poster above. Tragic for music in general though, songs which are lost forever! I have about ...

Re: Today I listened to Elysium for the first time since 2012...

Can't believe it's 7 years! I was travelling in America at the time and downloaded it at the Vancouver library (The Washington Vancouver which borders Portland, Oregon) and listened to it whilst I was there and it is amazing how it brings back memories of that place! Just like Bilingual does for me ...

Re: New EP on April: Agenda

The most cringe-worthy song they have ever made as far as I'm concerned. Awful. Fine, it's political satire and all that but it's a really poor effort on their part and quite a confusing release. I suppose that it will help flog a few more copies of Annually at the very least!

Re: 2019 Pet Shop Boys News: "Inner Sanctum DVD, touring, new album"

2018 was a busy year? Seriously? And here's hoping for the Inner Sanctum Tour on Blu-ray as well as DVD, at least we have a new album to look forward to next year which is exciting!

Re: *Post ROH Spoilers Here ONLY..*

What did Neil do to Love comes quickly? :-D He came too quickly...! 😁 He forgot to play the keyboard intro and started singing instead. He realised the mistake when the music cut to the drum breakdown before the verse should have started. He covered it well though with a comment about it being a “s...

Re: *Post ROH Spoilers Here ONLY..*

After being front row centre of the balcony on Wednesday night, on Friday I was in the orchestra stalls close to the front in the middle and I'm glad I experienced the concert from these two different vantage points. Have to say that I much preferred the Balcony, as much as I enjoyed being at stage ...

Re: *Post ROH Spoilers Here ONLY..*

Lithos up to number 79 from when I looked in the merchandise stand tonight so I'd say those coming tomorrow should be fine if they want one. Still seem to be the yellow posters in stock too, not sure how many though. Got myself the red cap and t-shirt tonight, couldn't resist! In the stalls tonight,...

Re: *Post ROH Spoilers Here ONLY..*

I bought a programme in the foyer and it was £5 Got home and found it’s exactly the same as the one produced for the 2016 concert apart from the ads at the Front and back. Bit poor. Concert was utterly bloody marvellous though. Just noticed that when comparing with the one from 2016! Concert was am...

Also, those red "HOUSE MUSIC" hats bear an uncanny, and probably not entirely unintentional, resemblance to Donald Trump's "Make America Great Again" hats :D
There are some that would say a Cap bearing the words "Make PSB Great Again" wouldn't be far from the truth! And no, I'm not one of them!

Re: *Post ROH Spoilers Here ONLY..*

They are selling the lithos in ascending order, got number 14 but would have made sure I was front of the queue if I'd known. Programme is slightly different apparently, doesn't seem as thick as the one from 2016 and at only a fiver I got myself one. Like pod mentioned the yellow poster is selling f...
