Re: Drico Drico Wherefore Art Thou..?

Hopefully nothing is amiss, but wasn't he absent for a period last year, prompting a similar thread.

The Grammys will possibly have an effect also. Billie Eilish likely to sell a heap of albums over the next day or so.

Yikes...that was embarrassing....all publicity I suppose...
Would the average Loose Women viewer go out and buy a PSB album though? I'd have then down more as Adele fans.

As for PSB fans, reruns of The Golden Girls would probably be closer to the mark.

Re: Official store Hotspot signed prints damage

I should have ordered the 12" as well to protect the prints. I contacted the store to add to my order (didnt want to order online and pay an extra postage fee) but they never got back to me. :( Lesson learnt for next time. Ordering the record is no guarantee that the print would be in pristine cond...

Re: Chris Lowe interview: "we like each other but we don't have sex"

I think they may have had an intimate encounter on that fateful first day, immediately following meeting at the electronics shop. Once that was out of the way, they realized they were better as friends who had a strong mutual interest in music. Just my theory anyway! 😎 Same as tbh. A few moments of...

Re: Chris Lowe interview: "we like each other but we don't have sex"

It seems obvious to me after listening and watching hundreds of interviews, hearing others talk about them and reading interviews with them that they are just really good friends and collaborative artistic partners and really enjoy each others company. But I have never once seen or heard anything f...

Bar the oversized hat, Chris looks really cool in that pic. He can carry off the shades, zip-up top and jeans combo very well.

Re: Hotspot booklet

Some of the photos have a very strong Wolfgang Tillmans vibe to them. So we at least know that his ways with a camera rubbed off on one or other of them ; )

Great read, one of the more in-depth reviews of the album. Good to see NME didn't decide to phone it in like Q Mag.

Re: Hotspot Limited Edition

Amazon deliver the vinyl and single cd. Official stores. Nothing. Not a bloody thing. Always useless. Never disappoint. That seems to be the general consensus. But then Amazon do have a 'tighter' grip on their workers. Yep...I wont buy from them, I've ordered Monkey Business from Rough Trade. Rough...

Re: Hotspot reviews

Some Gems in the replies in the Guardian article about the banning of acoustic guitars quote What utter, utter bullshit. I love all forms of music, not so much of the Pet Shop Boys repetitive dirge, they were always a mediocre 'pap' band who produced plenty of catchy little songs to please the 11 y...
