New Interview Alert!!!

Dear God, it’s Bigmouth’s fifth birthday. We know, right? In celebration, we welcome the legend that is Neil Tennant plus “third Pet Shop Boy” David Quantick for a gala appreciation of the lost world of the music press that made us. Worst interviewees, biggest disasters, dinner dates with Freddie Mercury, the twilight of Marilyn’s career, the mags we’d bring back from the dead and more… plus we bring back the Smash Hits Nosey Questions for one week only. Bigmouth: it’s a party in a podcast.

Oooh written tons of songs… written a theatre piece… Chris remixed the Paul Weller track with Neil on vocals and it’s 12 1/2 mins!

A blues would be in B flat, pain defining wisdom,
but the soul is in the high hat, programmed in the system.

Is there a general web link for this podcast, or is it only available in Apple Podcasts?

Ooo thanks for sharing. This is why I love checking this forum, you don't miss anything.

Here's the goss;

Written tonnes of songs
Written "a sort of theatre piece"
Remixed Paul Weller (Chris did it, Neil sung some vocals on it)
-Kind of a symphonic remix, in 3 movements. It lasts for 12 and a half minutes. (3 different versions all linked together and Neil sings on it) It's quite banging.

In lockdown Chris has written a lot of stuff, despite him and Neil not formalising a routine.
West End girls Lockdown Version vocals recorded on Neil's phone.

Less significant:
Neil has explored the countryside around his house, done a lot of walking, a lot of reading.
At start of lockdown got into Hollywood film noir from the 40s/early 50s. Likes seeing what life was like back then.
Neil came up with a tune for a song in his sleep, but later realised it was from Phantom Of The Opera so it was deleted.
