Re: Pet Shop Boys and Electronic fact/error

KLF's "The Manual" explains all this stuff really well... a fun read as well.

Heart has to be their most obvious attempt at a SAW style single.

Re: It’s A Sin - Years & Years cover

The only modern Erasure work I got into was the Violet Flame album and its singles... very good... Richard X can really get the best out of people. I'd still like him to be used for a whole PSB album.

Re: It’s A Sin - Years & Years cover

Of course you don't have to like Alexander's work (give Sanctify a spin though, I quite like that). It's the "too gay" comments about the performance that many have a problem with.

Re: It’s A Sin - Years & Years cover

Highlights VHS, LD. Welcome to 1989 I have that VHS. It's still good. Let's hope all of it features as extras on any live DVD. You can't buy anything from that tour right now though, can you? The point is, they can share what they want. There might have been contractual reasons that them appearing ...

Re: It’s A Sin - Years & Years cover

But it could be possible they were not 100 % agree about the perspective of the performance. They have said they approved everything as regards the show, and they co-produced the music. It'll be about the download. How does the "It’s a sin 1989" post fit in with those? You can't buy anyth...

Re: It’s A Sin - Years & Years cover

Drama! They are control freaks when it comes to their recorded output. It’s the availability of the download that was probably what put a stop to them being part of the actual performance. Any release they would probably want to come out on their own terms. I’m taking sound/performance/vocal qualit...

Re: It’s A Sin - Years & Years cover

Haven’t they always said that they want to write music more than perform it? Writing songs for others, or having others perform their songs, has always been something they wanted to happen. Pet shop boys as a songwriting team rather than an act was what they were expecting to have to fall back on af...

Re: "Cricket Wife" initial commentary

I was wondering that. Is it his own voice pitched down with software? Could be Chris hidden behind software. Doubt it’ll actually be a third person, not with lockdown.

Re: Interesting bits in Annually

You couldn’t tour of the back of Elysium (as attempts to treat the audience with the beautiful “Invisible” showed - people just talked over it), so timing Electric with that tour made sense. This tour is framed as a greatest hits tour, so isn’t crying out for a new album to play in the same way.

Re: Cricket Wife ratings

Can I increase the rating I gave? This gets better and better with every listen.

We really shouldn’t be having these polls so soon after a track is released, should we?
