Re: Smash - The Singles 1985 - 2020

Oh dear. I ordered the white vinyl boxset from the site back in early April. I remember doing it. I even remember getting the confirmation that I had ordered it. Now I can’t log into the site (it won’t send the password change email), I can’t see any email confirmations, and nothing has come out of ...

Re: Soft Cell & Pet Shop Boys

I mean, I'm THRILLED about this collaboration. But that cover. That didn't cross the desks of N&C surely? The upper case. The lower case 'z'. The centring. I threw this together in Word this morning in less than five minutes and (derivative as it is) it's better than that monstrosity of a cover...

Pet Shop Boys Wombo

Hello. In the absence of anything more interesting to do, I entered 'Pet Shop Boys' into Wombo (https://app.wombo.art) and the AI generated this rather wonderful artwork. Obviously, it should be the cover of the next album.

What are the necks like on these t-shirts? Like Chris Lowe, I demand a tight neck on a t-shirt.

It’s A Sin - Years & Years cover (Moderator Comment Post 276)

Lovely little cover of It’s A Sin by Years & Years ahead of the series premiere tonight. https://open.spotify.com/track/1CBD8aOExhsuPedP2P0wVi?si=zkMYjQkYQ7qwy5NqO2fTow I saw all five episodes just before Christmas. It’s an amazing piece of work. The PSB track is featured briefly in one episode ...

Re: New single - I don't wanna

SO them. Release "I Don't Wanna" when "Happy People" is the obvious choice. I both love them and am frustrated by this choice.Which is exactly as it should be as PSB fan.

Re: Hotspot - Forum Reactions.

Having listened to it two or three times now, it's a bit of a masterpiece. It's great to get back to proper songs after the last two albums of party music. There are some genuinely touching moments on this record (You Are The One/Hoping For A Miracle). The meditations on getting older and reminiscin...

Re: Neil Tennant in conversation, Saturday 5 October 2019, RNCM Theatre

Listening back to the event, I found one of the most interesting things Neil said was that having a smartphone in his pocket is probably why they've been so "prolific" in recent years. He mentioned that he probably had lots of ideas for songs before owning one that he just didn't take note...

Re: DREAMWORLD TOUR

Pre-sale worked just fine for me. Manchester Arena, two seats, block A, row 2. Result.

Oh, and 'Dreamland' is the best PSB single for years. And certainly their strongest opening single for a new album. Bodes well.
