Re: Do you think PSB should postpone the DREAMWORLD tour because of covid-19?

If they're quarantined in the studio, they could always write and record some new songs. :)

Hmmm. Why though? The virus doesn't last on non-living objects for more than 3 days
Exactly... it's a time for facts over feelings.

Re: Do you think PSB should postpone the DREAMWORLD tour because of covid-19?

Greetings, It's a terrible time financially to be having a world tour, because you're paying people, whether you get a show on or not and it's not cheap to go on tour. Given the uncertainty, you can't know whether a show will go ahead or not, even days away. The New Order concert I was scheduled to ...

Re: The most New Order-esque PSB tracks?

Greetings, Are you guys going to do another PSB night? Good question. We're going to wait until the Coronavirus nonsense has stopped before proposing another tribute night. Next cab off the rank after that will likely be Depeche Mode or an act from the Britpop era. That said, we have linked our show...

Re: The most New Order-esque PSB tracks?

Greetings, Unfortunately attendance was hit a bit due to Coronavirus fears, but it was still a good night. Here's a Spotify Playlist with some of what I played... far from all of it though because a lot simply wasn't on Spotify. Pet Shop Boys tracks played by me were the Phil Harding mix of Always O...

Re: The most New Order-esque PSB tracks?

Greetings Sage, It sort of snuck up on me, didn't realise it's this week. Well, of course I'm going. :lol: Are you coming?... https://www.facebook.com/events/202617077556094/ Pretty excited about playing a mix of hits, fan favourites, collaborations, side-projects etc. The Unity Tour concept also pr...

Re: New single - I don't wanna

Greetings, Whilst it's good that the 12" isn't identical to the single, like Monkey Business was, it still seems like a lost opportunity. If it were up to me, we'd be seeing the album version removed, and the main Dreamland Full Intention mix included. 12" singles are designed for the dance-floor......

Re: New single - I don't wanna

Greetings,

Well, it is another slightly pointless 4th single, so yes, it's apt that they keep the artwork aligned.

Re: New single - I don't wanna

Greetings,

Slightly different tracklisting on the CD vs 12" this time around...

The 12" plays as follows...

Side A
1 I don't wanna (album version)
2 I don’t wanna (Mano Le Tough remix)
Side B
1 I don’t wanna (David Jackson remix one)
2 I don’t wanna (David Jackson remix two)

Retro. :)

I'd just bought tickets for an Altern 8 gig too. Double whammy.
Yep, it's full on mask hysteria.

I think this will happen on a case-to-case basis. Of course, it might die down by then, but then again...
Yes, this is the obvious "third option". Avoid any hotspots 8) and travel only to areas with low rates.

Full version of Streets, unavailable elsewhere, the definitive version Seriously (extended), the definitive version, absolutely brilliant Bet She's Not Your G...

Re: Listening To Please And Actually Without Singles

Greetings, Over on Spotify I’ve done a PSB playlist called “also”. It’s two to three tracks from each album that weren’t singles. It’s head and shoulders above a lot of other artists “best of”. I did a similar thing back when the PopArtMix box came out. I made myself a 4th disc entitled Fan. Retro. :)
