Pet Shop Boys
Please, the first Pet Shop Boys album, was
released In March 1986. Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe
had met In London during August 1981 and began
writing songs together soon afterwards, eventually
settling into a routine of regularly demoing new songs
In a Camden recording studio owned by Ray Roberts.
In August 1983 - when Neil was working at the pop
magazine Smash Hits and Chris was studying
architecture - Neil was sent to New York by Smash
Hits to interview The Police and took the opportunity
to play some songs to the cult disco producer, Bobby
Orlando, whose records Chris and Neil admired.
Bobby ‘O’, as he was known, announced that they
would make a record together. The first Pet Shop
Boys single, the Bobby ‘O’-produced version of
‘West End girls’, was released in April 1984 and was a
modest underground dance hit, at the time satisfying
their one stated ambition: to have a twelve-inch single
available on import in thetrendiest London record
shops. A second, ‘One more chance’, followed. By
March 1985 the Pet Shop Boys were extricated from
their Bobby ‘O’ contract and signed to EMI Records’
subsidiary, Parlophone. A single, ‘Opportunities (Let’s
make lots of money)’, was released that August but,
to their disappointment, only reached number 116 in
the British charts.
