Re: Pet Shop Boys, Unlimited

I like the unassuming occupation title: musician... maybe Neil Francis is a concert pianist? or a freelance cello player?

Re: Pet shop boys weekend Star FM

Cool. Been listening to the radio in the car today. They played some Liza tracks as well.

They’re never going to top the charts again. They’ll get a brief mention on the TV news when one or both of them dies.
Dark humour. Sad, fascinating, perhaps even true.

Re: PSB Digital stores delivery issues

I asked them for an update. We are sorry to hear that you have not received your order which we dispatched to you on 6th May 2021. As you have chosen ‘standard’ shipping as opposed to ‘courier’ shipping, the delivery isn’t tracked. The most common reason for non-delivery is that the postal carrier ...

Re: Amazon Music

Not keeping a CD/LP set up at home seems a bit naive. Using online services instead of your own mp3/wav/flac-library on a hard drive is not exactly the way where you don't have yourself to blame. What about while in a car, my car doesn’t have a CD it’s either DAB or streaming / car play so my colle...

Re: ***One More Chance - 1984 12”***

Is this really the 1984 release or a more recent re-release?

Re: PSB Digital stores delivery issues

I'm flabbergasted that Wayne doesn't have VIP access to all PSB releases.To treat geowayne like this is really sad. Thanks, telys, but I don't believe I deserve any special treatment. But everyone who orders and pays for a product from anyone should receive what they order. From that perspective, w...

Re: Could we hope for another PSB transformation and what would it be?

Could there be anything that would return them to the top, the talk of the day?

I guess N&C themselves regard being "electronic purists" as a transformation. But for the common listener it's not that obvious.

Could we hope for another PSB transformation and what would it be?

I used to put a watershed mark on 1992, PSB before and after but now I rather think it's 1994. Then Pete died, they went on their party tour in S Am and let it all loose. 10 years later the rebirth of PSB with Potemkin soundtrack. 5 years after that they became legacy and that's where we are now. Wh...

Re: 20 years of Further Listening

Time flies indeed! They’re no different from other legacy acts though: the ‘hits’ or critical acclaim happens in the first 5-10 years, then there is a period of consolidation if you’re lucky (PSB are masters at this) or decline and/or line up changes. Then after x years there is a reunion of the or...

Re: PSB Digital stores delivery issues

Greetings Wayne, Keep pushing the line, don't give up. Insist that if it was delivered back to the warehouse then *your* copy exists *there*. It hasn't vanished into thin air, and you don't mind at all that they're re-sending stock that's previously been posted. Retro. :) Actually, several hours af...

Re: PSB Digital stores delivery issues

Received Annually pretty quickly after paying the customs fees. Happy reader right now. It was wrapped in double envelopes and double plastic covers. Maybe that's why shipping is so expensive.

Re: Pet Shop Boys and Electronic fact/error

Greetings, It couldn't be copyrighted too. So is the drum/rythmic part-track. So, if someone wanted... they could totally rip off the drum pattern and bassline from say, Blue Monday or West-End Girls, and that's totally allowable? Retro. :) Well the bass can play the melody as well. I think Onzio r...
