Re: G'Day from Perth, Western Australia

I really have to check in here more often. Sorry its been, well, years and years (see what I did there?). So much has happened. For one thing, Love is a Bourgeois Construct is on very high repeat in my car, even though it is ageing a bit these days, it's still one of their best tracks in many moons ...

Re: Showing some love for Construct

On the not ageing well front, I'm, replaying this a lot the last month or so and it remains, to my mind, one of their best post imperial works. Still catch AF and beautiful to hear.

Re: G'Day from Perth, Western Australia

No, no, you are all correct. Late 94 it was. Dammit that means my wife was right, even before I met her, as she swore it was before we met and I swore it was just after. Nobody tell her, OK? Yes, it was at the much maligned Entertainment Centre, and I wish I had hung around but I was very paranoid a...

Goodbye, Spaceboy

Just a quick one to say farewell to David Bowie. Turns out he did things other than collaborate with the Pet Shop Boys. So many of those, in fact that in all the bio's, obits and remembrances, "Hallo, Spaceboy" gets forgotten. But we won't. Might not have been a highlight of anyone else's ...

Re: The Life of a Song: ‘Always On My Mind’

I didn't think there could be a better version than the radio mix, which I will adore til I die, but the version on Introspective is completely epic.

Re: Do You Want A New Bitch (Misheard Lyrics - Merged Threads)

"We never ever argue,we never calculate the currant seeds we've spent" I wondered what the market value of currant seeds must have been in the 80s. Then I figured it must have been "current seed" which frankly sounded a bit too intimate. Then I suddnely one day heard it right and...

Re: Showing some love for Construct

I'm with Verbow on this one. This is exactly the kind of PSB track I happen to love and get all excited about. DOn't get me wrong, I 'm a lyric lover and their slower melodic stuff is (usually) pretty beautiful in some way or another, but Construct is just fun, very cool IMHO and I quite like to voc...

You have won the great prize of my respect and admiration!

I really thought there were more questions-title songs in the cataloguye, but I drew a blank after those.

ANd for the record, you got them all right, epically so. I guess my mind IS an open book

Re: The defining Pet Shop Boys moment

Lots of defining moments for me. But one moment I adore is 1h 36m 45s at the end of Performance.... "This is Chris Lowe, I'm Neil Tennant.... We're The Pet Shop Boys" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0f8SEq1aawU#t=1h36m45s Second on that! OMG, when they said that at the end of the 95 Disco...

Re: 20 Years of "Paninaro '95"

I really didn't know Alternative charted so well in the UK. I'm quite pleased. It was a bugger to get here in Aus. I did enjoy the version of "boys and girls" and Mister vain" they did during the Perth DiscoVery show, though. I felt like (as Neil said) they had genuinely liked the tra...

Come on.

Add I still much prefer the raw power of the 86 version, if we are sharing.

I'm with nickname. I think you are taking it too far. I think the offence taken shoul dperhaps come from the original context of the photos published.

Re: The defining Pet Shop Boys moment

Ironically, considering its a cover of a cover and all, and that the clip is from a film theymade featuring themselves and bears absolutely no connection to the song, I'd say the clip to Always on My mind is it for me. I think for me it says PSB at their most PSBish. Niel said in some interview thin...
