Re: Forthcoming PSB TV and radio appearances...

These radio promos are great. Takes me back to the good old days. Both Neil and Chris on top form, but that gaydio interview really shows their characters and humour, especially Chris on “Pet Shop Boys on Pet Shop Boys” feature; “Oh God”, “Dunno” and... “Not a fan” 🤣

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

He seems pleased to hear about our reviews which is nice. Wonder if it’ll get played again in full on radio one? If not heard it btw then you need to find it on bbc sounds. It’s bloody brilliant!!

Re: Neil and Chris signing Hotspot prints

Great spot. Need that carpet for my office lol

The prints may actually be 2 sizes; 12” for the LP and A4 for the CD (thinking of how packaged).

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

Actually, it’s a clever way of promoting the mix whilst removing any potential stigma or bias of who it is. Great mix. Loving this track the more I hear it!

BBC R1 have just played a snippet of the FriendWithin remix of Monkey Business on MistaJam show. Like it.

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

After at first defiantly not liking it, I’ve heard Monkey Business in a club setting and OMG. What. A. Track. Completely get it now!

Still stand by the let’s move on from SP though. Be interesting to try Kölsch, Cristoph, Krystal Klear or Mella Dee for a proper electronic dance vibe.

Heads up that Neil & Chris will be on Graham Norton’s BBC Radio 2 show on Saturday 25th January to discuss Hotspot.

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

Got to be honest and agree with you Eleven in that I love what SP has done with the old stuff but this trilogy and the current promo material has left me, well, flat. I’m one of those who champion the new stuff, the current PSB direction, the its not the 80’s anymore, but... I’ve been mulling this o...

Re: Dreamland on A List BBC Radio 2 and Record of the week

@mgnt that’s based on past 30 days. I was just pointing to day time plays since the gig

@vincenonsense but that’s what a forums for; debate. If @mgnt is right then so be it, then I accept his point, and we all learn something. Which if ever it comes up in a pub quiz will make us better, ahem. Lol

Re: Pet Shop Boys - Hyde Park Sep 15th 2019

@Parkol. Have to disagree in that Dreamland is a very current track. I get what you mean with The Forgotten Child, as a fan from the very early days, that’s more PSB but... the fact is that PSB have always moved with the times and hate the nostalgic element hence why we ‘true/old’ fans get upset at ...

Re: Dreamland on A List BBC Radio 2 and Record of the week

Interesting to see that besides the PSB specials and documentary, BBC R2 have only played the boys twice during the day this week; Heart and What have I done to deserve this? Hyde Park versions. No airtime to Dreamland! Disappointing, especially as Simply Dread have had more plays.

Re: Rate "Dreamland"

Actually @Nikac, I’ve always felt that they’ve never given enough heavy bass. There’s been the odd tracks of course but have often wished that there was more oomph in the early days, especially on the dancier numbers. Even Was it worth it only had that break with a heavy bass. But... I think this tr...

Re: Rate "Dreamland"

The more I hear it, the more and more I’m loving it. Really liked The Forgotten Child and Ich Bin Musik and this is just adding another dimension to their musical creativity and talent. I for one hope the album has a similar vein but... also a touch of old school Behaviour and Actually.

Re: Pet Shop Boys - Hyde Park Sep 15th 2019

Well, that was bloody marvellous. Olly was like a kid in a sweet shop lol, and as for Beverley Knight... at first I thought ‘no’ but by the end I was hooked. Looked like the boys and the crowd enjoyed it.
