Re: Hotspot Limited Edition

Thanks for the heads up tottenhammattspurs, just ordered the double CD, i love an instrumental, great for making my old school 12" extended mixes and it will go with my Yes, Electric and Elysium Instrumentals. I just hope the infamous postage from the official site is up to speed and everyone gets w...

Re: Burning The Heather Remix

I like this, i have a few of your mixes, i especially like the 84 mix of The Way It Used To Be so this is a nice surprise, what program do you use to make your video's, always wondered how you manage to incorporate the official video within yours.

Re: Burning the heather

First of all, to dispense any prejudices: 1. I am not averse to guitars. I am also a big fan of U2, REM and Roxette, and to a lesser degree, Def Leppard and Imagine Dragons. And the reason why I hate Release is not the guitars. Notwithstanding, PSB are the only musical act whose albums or concert D...

Re: remix consultant

Why not get Trouser Enthusiasts, Jam & Spoon or even PSB fans such as JCRZ and see what they have to offer, In fact here's a thought..why not get the boys themselves to get their arses into the studio and work on a proper 12" extended remix for their customers to appreciate, I get why they like to e...

Re: Burning the heather

There is a lovely homemade mix of Burning The Heather on youtube which i came across Burning The Heather Blade Extended Mix I won't post the link as admin may not allow it but it's easy enough to find, i'm hoping the album version sticks to the same vein and the remix on the single release doesn't d...

Re: Burning the heather

On my first couple of listens i likened it to a track that belonged on Elysium, which was not a great thing from my point of view but i have been singing it all day, i'm not usually a fan of the boys ballads but this is something so much more (It is in the same vein as The Way It Used To Be which in...

Re: PET SHOP BOYS NEW SONG: ANGELIC THUG

Oh look, another generic "Reggaeton" sounding tune, hate stuff like this but if it fits in with the segment of the play that is relevant to it then fair play.

:pray: Praying the new album does not have this style of music on it

Their second album, Big Bang was a great piece of 1989 pop and contained a version of Walking On Thin Ice

Re: Fuzzbox

Weren't they on "The Word" many years ago (UK Channel 4 music show) and the bass player actually got her "fuzzbox" out for the viewing audience to see...Terry Christian nearly had a heart attack. I'm sure their full name was "We've Got A Fuzzbox and We're Going To Use It" Here's one of their tracks....

Re: Cracking homemade Burn remix

I know he splits opinion on here most of the time but Jose Cruz does some fantastic mixes of the boys songs and over the years has done some absolute belters, i actually look forward to hearing what he has done when a new PSB single or album is released. It's clear to see he really is a super fan of...
