Surrounded by old tapes, DATs, CDs etc for a forthcoming reissues project. It's always interesting to see what forgotten gems turn up! Back to songwriting next week. Neil x
So, what do u think is waiting us? A Singles boxset? Further Listenings for Nightlife-Elysium albums?
Regarding the last question, wasn't Bounce considered a title for the album that became Introspective.
Nice to hear Chris mention Hooked On Radiation. I heard it for the first time in ages the other day and I'd forgotten how fun and utterly bonkers it is.
Electric and Yes boxes are in the Top 30 Most Expensive Records Sold On Discogs – September 2017 list on Discogs
14th place - Electric - sold for $1280
1st place - Yes - sold for........ $7000 :shock: :shock: :shock:
Id be interest in knowing how those figures end up there. I don't completely trust anything that happens on discogs where the rules are changed on a daily basis and it's ruled by mafia-like people.
Also it could have been annuled, or even the seller could have got someone to buy it online just to...
Hi, has anyone had any issues with the quality of the pressings for both Yes & Elysium. I only ask as I am now waiting for my 4th copy of Yes to be delivered tomorrow (thank god for Amazon's return policy) as it jumps throughout side 2; my Elysium pressing jumps all the way through both sides. All...
Can't speak for Elysium, but my Yes reissue is streets ahead of the original in terms of sound quality, and has no pressing issues. (I have an ortofon 2m bronze cartridge at 1.5g tracking weight and a pro-ject debut III SE if that helps.)
Hey there! Tomorrow (Saturday) is the last full day of my current poll, which asks you to pick the 12 Tennant-Lowe songs (that is, songs that they wrote or co-wrote) that you would include on an imaginary Pet Shop Boys Ballads album. If you haven't voted yet, please take a few moments to visit my...
Yes, I know this question has been bounced around the forum for a few months. And yes, I know we've been guessing a possible name, and more. But on the basis of all these discussions, does anyone have a reasonable guess?
I think it's maybe a little to quiet on the PSB front. The calm before the...
Yeah, I want Bilingual / Further Listening 1995 - 1997 is very nice the music latine
ok, been going through this book, and here is a brief preview of the text:
Pet Shop Boys versus America. A book by Chris Heath. Photographs by Pennie Smith.
No other pop group in recent years has faced celebrity
Some more sample text:
Sunday, 17 March
Coconut Grove, Miami, a suburb of boutiques with pastel pink and green
awnings. The Pet Shop Boys and entourage are staying at the Mayfair House
Hotel. Everyone is booked under their own names except for Neil (C. Heston)
It’s not like they are energetic on stage, they were in the early days during Behaviour for example, but now they just stand there. I’m not complaining because that’s just who they are, their identity if you like.
I love seeing them live, because it is literally an electric experience.
:( i was hoping Super tour would come to Asia in 2018

Sorry, if it's been mentioned before, but my reaction was like big WOW!!! :) I remember I was too young and I didn't have a proper connection with e-shopping world at the time of its first publication. I hope it's a trusty source and we get reissue....
Fantastic work, -1!
I want that book so badly, but nowadays it's so expensive on eBay. Even when it's not, the shipping costs boost the price significantly.
Perhaps an updated edition is overdue?
According to IG, “Heart” will be the soundtrack to Dior Homme Summer 2018 soundtrack. Not the first time Dior Homme used their songs-they used “Paninaro” for one of their runway shows previously. This and Burberry, the boys must be pleased. Surely a designer collaboration is in the wings soon. Paul...
Rumors are saying that the upcoming Dior Homme Fall Winter 2018 happening in 3 days will either have Pet Shop Boys prints OR music done by the boys.
Morning, I know a lot of you are not keen on this and I also think Neil and Chris may feel the same but why on earth do they keep leaving Neil and Chris off the New Years Honours list? I could not believe what I was seeing on the news when I got up this morning! If I wasn't so hungry I would have...
Marie, you went above and beyond there! Glad you did, I had only sent a letter to the Queen etc... is great fun to read. Journalism and royal intrigue, thanks Marie. :)
I said many years ago, if it's offered , Neil should take the gong, Chris can turn it down, whatever. On the other hand, having...
The final results are in for my poll of the past week, in which I asked my site visitors to pick the Pet Shop Boys single that has reached (or reached most profoundly, or has come closest to reaching) their lifetime hearing quota. And the single that, in this case, earned the dubious distinction of...
Oh jeez trying to pick 12 songs out of those is going to be a nightmare.
