Re: PSB @ Zara

Received my large Suburbia T today and its much too big. Has anyone by any chance ordered a medium and found it too small and fancy a swap?

Re: On-U Sound

I have the Depeche Mode 'Master & Servant' On-U Sound remix - which has that much distortion on it my Mum tried to get me to take it back!

My understanding was that it was an Adrian Sherwood vehicle - he is credited I believe on the 12"mix I own.

Re: T-Shirts

@TimelessMelody_ on Twitter do some excellent designs. I bought an Electronic and a New Order one a couple of years ago and the quality was excellent.

The PSB ones aren’t great but maybe if a few people asked for them???

Re: It’s A Sin - Years & Years cover

My take away from the performance was: 'how great did that video screen look'? - Hopefully Es took the idea from the planned Dreamworld tour staging and that we have that to look forward to next year. Don't think Es Devlin is involved in the Dreamworld Tour. At least that's whatI remember reading s...

Re: Discovery 1994 - DVD/CD-Release

.. .. I look forward to your next misrepresentation of my fandom, but not as much as I do to Cricket Wife. Drico. Hi Drico, I'm a relatively new member to this forum but I always find your posts very eloquently written. You are obviously a similar age to me (around 50), lived through the 'Imperial'...

Re: Do you think a producer like Mark Ronson could work for PSB?

Pet Shop Boys should work with Marius Lauber and let Roosevelt produce their next record. On your recommendation I'm listening to Polydans. I'm assuming its the same Roosevelt - either way its a very good album album. Not sure how PSB it is but our tastes are in the same Venn diagram! Cheers! G.

Re: New Electronic single Entre Nous and mini album FOuRTH

I just received a newsletter by Warner announcing the following: E L E C T R O N I C return with new single E N T R E N O U S. New album F O u R T H arriving this summer I’ll be honest, you had me. I think it was pretty clever in fairness. I liked the fact that you uppercased and spread out the wor...

Re: New Electronic single Entre Nous and mini album FOuRTH

I’ve always found that they got quite a lot of respect from the NME through the years. If there was any criticism of them, it was maybe from some of the bands featured in the mag. From 86-93 all their albums made it on to the NME’s Albums of the year Top 50 Please 35th Actually 10th Introspective 8...

Re: “Relentless” & the KLF

I think the idea of Jarvis driving the tanks on to Neil's front lawn only works if you think of both as merely foppish, fey, witty pop intellectuals - end even then is only plausible for that brief moment when Pulp went full pop with Common People and Disco 2000. In truth, they operated in differen...

Re: “Relentless” & the KLF

The timeline is lost in the midst of time - but would the proposed KLF collaboration have been superseded by the Electronic collab?

Perhaps 'Getting Away With It' could have been a stadium house track. It is certainly in the vain of 'Kylie Said To Jason'.

Re: “Relentless” & the KLF

Neil and Chris are on record as praising the KLF during this, their most successful year - something they rarely award their contemporaries: Chris suggested they were the only other worthwhile UK group; Neil recognised their “incredibly recognisable sound”. The fact they saw the KLF as being from a...
