  1. I love Hotspot, and actually am glad this got bumped because I haven't played it in a year. The quality this late into their career... legends.

  2. Yeah, I loved it too. I get why others weren't keen, but it hit the spot for me. I can't get over how fantastic they continue to be this far into their stellar career.

  3. Now this sounds interesting.

     
  4. I'm here for this, I wonder if this is the reason Soft Cells album was delayed.

  5. Food for thought: Soft Cell had to die so that Pet Shop Boys could exist.

  6. Yes I suspect this is the case, Marc mentioned that they were updating a couple of tracks on the album.

  7. Back in 2002 I was on the Pet Shop Boys mailing list and was sent the bright pink slipcase for the Home and dry singles set. Today, twenty years later, I finally completed the package with the DVD.

  9. Hinting at a new video! Everything points to it being for the Soft Cell collab.

    The original pre-PSB version of the track apparently leaked a while ago, I wonder what kind of vibe goes with a pub video...
     
  10. Jesus, Neil, you know I love you but that is NOT how to pour a pint of stout! And on St. Patrick's Day, too. For shame.
     
  11. It was recorded weeks ago, though! (A calendar in the picture shows February 4, to be exact.)

  15. That sounds horrible. The live version I've heard today at least had a semblance of melody, which this remix totally nukes.

  16. Is that remix in any way official? It sounds like some amateur mash-up (me) using a looped drum from an old Bobby O.-PSB demo and plonking badly separated vocals from another track on top. It´s shockingly bad...and the original song is not much better. Why are they doing this?
    I´m never one to shout "they´re ruining their legacy", but they are slowly getting there.
     
  17. There is no way that's official. He has 240 Twitter followers. He also has no talent.

  18. I'm not gonna go with "ruined legacy" just yet. More of a helping hand to a band they see as an early influence, and a little side-project before the tour. Considering the amount of remixes they've done recently, it could easily be a way to squeeze out a "Disco 5" too, with these new remixes, some of their old ones, and maybe an surprise new bonus track somewhere in the middle?
