Re: Dricography: Ranking Behaviour

Funnily enough I’ve been revisiting behaviour recently. Triggered partly by my fascination and awe of the blade remix of ‘to face the truth’ which i feel takes the track to whole new levels of beauty. The last 45 seconds deserve a track entry all on their own. On top of that, I’ve been wondering why...

Re: Strictly BBC1 indent/advert?

I've just seen an advert with I feel love as the track, if it's this one at the beginning it sounds like the mix into Go west where Neil says ' my heart starts missing a beat ' 'everytime' Btw Blade. I’m a big fan of your mixes. A personal fave of mine might surprise you. The outro to ‘to face the ...

Re: Hating PSB

A few other reasons why people dislike PSB (or came to dislike them) to throw into the mix, at least in the UK: 1) I think they were hit quite hard when Top of the Pops moved to live vocals in the early 90s. Neil got away with it in the context of a live concert ("... although your voice is we...

Re: 80sography Stephen Hague podcasts

Interesting, Hague mentioning a falling out between his management and their management which led to him leaving producing the Actually album. There also seemed to be some sort of indifference towards Julian Mendensohn. Somewhere else, perhaps on here courtesy of Dog, I think I heard that Stephen H...

Re: Hating PSB

Simply can't be arsed? Joe Stalin? Man, you've changed... To clarify… my position is that the thought of trying to explain and persuade non fans to become fans feels like a bridge too far. The journey to fandom started for me with hearing David Kid Jensen playing the 12inch dance mix of Love Comes ...

Re: Hating PSB

Pet Shop Boys have always been incredibly divisive, in my experience. I put some of that down to low-level homophobia - but not simply that. It's bad enough for their "critics" that they are poofs, but it's unforgivable that they are poofs with attitude, poofs getting above their station ...

Re: Anything?

I could be wrong but I think I read recently that Elton John is about to release a 30 odd track collection of songs entitled lockdown sessions featuring guest tie ups. Wonder if N&C will feature ?

Re: Stephen Hague Podcast

Worth also checking out the previous interview from the same series with Steve Lipson. Very complementary about both Neil and Chris (he gets a mention!) and the making of Left to my own devices
