Re: New EP in April: Agenda

National Review has an essay: https://www.nationalreview.com/2019/02/pet-shop-boys-new-album-agenda-snark-contempt/ "Give Stupidity a Chance" makes for a great Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez slogan. :lol: I didn’t enjoy this article, it is unbelievably partisan and assumes Agenda simply must be about Ame...

Re: Agenda: Top Three Moments

Oh good, a thread that’s actually about our new EP! Three from me; Give stupidity a chance The musical passage before the last chorus. By then the song is totally mad, and to me it sounds slightly insane. I imagine that’s the idea. What are we going to do about the rich? The last verse. Brechtian! T...

Re: PSB announce ‘Inner Sanctum’ live DVD/BLU RAY/CD

Yes it’s definitely Farrow, they posted it on their Instagram, along with Agenda more recently. It’s a lovely lavish-looking package, the deep red references the the ROH programme. This is almost certainly the last time we’ll see the ‘Super circles’ motif. It’s been an extremely strong look for the ...

Re: New EP on April: Agenda

Those of you doing the pointless internet shouty thing, up to almost parody standard, do you want to perhaps set up another thread? You’ve ruined this one and the way you’ve started sniping at each other is sooo boring and predictable. Maybe go to the off topic section?

Re: PSB announce ‘Inner Sanctum’ live DVD/BLU RAY/CD

Have you seen the pictures on Amazon and Rough Trade of the packaging? It’s stunning! And it’ll be even better in the flesh. I think this release shows they absolutely DO care, about people with DVD players, people who want HD and people who want the audio on CD. I imagine it’ll be released digitall...

Re: 2019 Pet Shop Boys News: "Inner Sanctum DVD, touring, new album"

I like owning the beautiful artwork you get with PSB releases. It doesn’t take up much space. I only buy a DVD or a Blu-ray if I really like something. Same with CDs. They live in a small Ikea unit. Each album is a lovely ‘thing’. I don’t have tech some of you have. I do have most of my music on iTu...

Re: 2019 Pet Shop Boys News: "Inner Sanctum DVD, touring, new album"

The ideal for everyone would be a Blu-ray release with a digital copy included, like some movies. I think even in 2019 most people are only able to watch download-only films on phones and tablets. I want to watch PSB stuff on my main TV in great quality, not ‘on the go’. I also like to have the love...

Re: 2019 Pet Shop Boys News: "Inner Sanctum DVD, touring, new album"

I really hope they announce the DVD and/or Blu-ray soon, everywhere I look I see ‘no-one buys physical’ anymore and I really want a physical copy! I’m hoping they don’t go download-only.

My ideal would be a Blu-ray with a CD. But I guess I’m old-fashioned!

Re: 2019 Pet Shop Boys News: "Inner Sanctum DVD, touring, new album"

What we’re missing is that they’ll have researched what they can afford/are prepared to produce and release based on expected sales. I thought we’d had our last concert film, as Neil had said YouTube had killed the market, so I’m thrilled we’re getting a proper one (rubbish YouTube videos are no sub...

Re: 2019 Pet Shop Boys News: "Inner Sanctum DVD, touring, new album"

This is exciting! I’m hoping they announce this soon.

Does anyone know how long the actual show was? 105 minutes sounds about right. I’m really hoping they haven’t left anything out. ‘The Enigma’, for example, is one of my favourite bits.

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: 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.
