Re: Shep Pettibone collection

I see Oakenfold more as a nineties DJ though, in most cases not really my cup of tea but like some of his remixes.

Re: DREAMWORLD Greatest Hits Tour RESCHEDULED until 2022

Report was closed with no action. Typical. Wonder what's so valuable in the secret file sharing forum that keeps these fools afloat. oakey, note that the upset people didn't start this. Why not aim your anger where it's actually needed? The thread will "heal" once we have something to dis...

Re: Shep Pettibone collection

Some signed copies been made available again on Amazon UK if you are quick! Oddly it’s signed by Arthur Baker, rather than Shep. Yeah I thought that too, but I suppose it is ‘Arthur Baker Presents…’ Like I said before, Shep has retired from the music bussiness ages ago and he is not in any way invo...

Re: Anything?

Agree, too expensive, too limited. The Soft cell or Marc Almond one is a better example.

Re: Anything?

Was thinking the same these days. 2020 was great release-wise despite COVID but since Literally and DiscoVery there have been no activities at all it seems. Oh we had the Weller remix of course.

Re: PSB @ Zara

Found them at Zara today (they had the Super and Yes t-shirts), but decided not to buy them as they were quite expensive for a t-shirt and in the end band shirts are too nerdy for my taste, especially because of the detailed info on the back.

Re: Pet Shop Boys remix Paul Weller

Never been a Paul Weller fan. Mix is okay-ish but indeed overlong.

Re: Do you think PSB need a new release before the tour?

Noooo please no rerecordings of their hits! That is the lack-of-creativity moneymaker of all ageing artists who do not own the publishing rights of their hits. Kylie and Visage did it, most of Shirley Bassey's output consists of rerecordings of her signature songs, with Gloria Gaynor's I will surviv...

Re: Remembering Go West because of this

This map makes me very sad. Luckily I live in the Netherlands, where the 10% include our bible belt people who believe earth is 6000 years old, the pope is the Antichrist and women should not have the right to vote or work, but bear 12+ children. They are not violent though, unlike many opponents in...

https://asbury.gaycities.com/events/664970-shep-pettibones-birthday-paradise No, he still DJs at his club in NJ. That is a flyer for a party in his honour, nowhere does it say that he will play a set nor that he will be present. The photo on it is also at least 15 years old. He only spins very occa...

Re: Dieter Bohlen talking about the PSB+Modern Talking collaboration that never happened.

I personally think it only happened in Dieter's head, didn't Neil and Chris make fun of Modern Talking in the 80s? Did they? Nothing wrong with Modern Talking. Just listen to much of the italo music from that period and they very much sound the same. They are just not very original and stick to the...

20 working days is 4 full weeks, so no.
