Re: *Post ROH Spoilers Here ONLY..*

I’m interested to hear about the filming that’s taking place tonight and tomorrow night. There were a few camera people dotted about yesterday, presumably rehearsing.

Attendees please report! Fingers crossed for a suitably spectacular concert film, the show deserves it!

Re: 3 x ROH backstage tour tickets available

I’d happily take all three if still available! I have tried to PM but it’s just sitting in my Outbox

Re: Battleship Potemkin - redesigned cover?

There is, as far as I know, only one edition of ‘Battleship Potemkin’. There’s an outer slipcase with a text-only design, and the CD sleeve is a treated photograph of a sailor’s face. See Catalogue.

The image on Amazon is from a promo poster.

Re: Return to Royal Opera House

Marie the strike that was averted was a backstage staff strike in 2015. I’m pretty confident this one will be averted too, as the ROH won’t want their lucrative summer season shows disrupted. They won’t be able to tell you anything yet so there isn’t much point emailing, it’ll resolve when it resolv...

Re: Return to Royal Opera House

My bad, that article from 2015 has popped up on Twitter where I’ve been following the story. But... Inner Sanctum is right at the end of the summer season, so hopefully there’s plenty of time for them to reach an agreement.

PSB curse possibly strikes again? Possibility of strike action at the Opera House this summer.

This has apparently been averted, a pay deal has been reached.

Re: Reissues project

Could we make a pinned topic, or just an editable list of the many differences between the 2001/2018 re-issues and the original albums? Gotta say, the "Love etc." edit and the additional "Violence" changes are kind of annoying to me. I probably won't be tracking for the previous re-issues because o...

Re: Marriage: Neil Tennant and Mark Farrow discuss the imagery of Pet Shop Boys

To me there’s a giant leap in aesthetic from West End Girls cover art to Please, Suburbia and Opportunities. It’s almost like a different designer took over. West End girls is very hi-NRG disco 12-inch of the time. The later work respects the Eric Watson photography much better. And thank god he go...

Re: New Annually - April 2nd 2018.

Ordered mine after a delay of waiting to receive forgotten password which has not come but fortunately I guessed what it was! I am curious to know how anyone would know from the picture that it is a paper back? To me, it looks very similar to the cover that the programme for the Royal Opera House s...

Re: Super tour 2018

This sounds unlikely, I’m reading it as fake news (which is fact in 2017). I can’t visualise the Pets offering themselves up to play somewhere only to be turned down. The closest likely scenario is the organisers considering booking the Pets and opting for the local singer instead. That is quite dif...

Re: Reissues project

I’ll be picking up Please - Bilingual as they come out because my 2001 copies are very bashed-up. I’m also excited about the vinyl editions. My ridiculously obsessive mind wonders if Farrow will tidy up the tracklistings to match the other 2017 releases (where * is previously unreleased and ** is pr...
