Re: Pet shop boys

Funny, I remember the first time listening to that track too. I was doing some parttime work at an office and the radio was on. Then I heard Bowie's new song and I thought: "wow, Bowie really sounds like Pet Shop Boys now", right after that Neil's part comes up.

Re: Pet shop boys

I love their remixes for other artists. It always ends up sounding like Pet Shop Boys but still respecting the original. And Neil usually puts his voice somewhere in the track. The best thing they've done I think was their remix for Bowie's Hallo Spaceboy where Neil cites Space Oddity. Goosebumps.

Re: Pet shop boys

The extended mix is even better. Available on CD single soon, but also on the streaming services.

Re: French article mentions a tour in September 2022

That would coinside with the release of the new album. And it sounds like the Oxymore event was a testing ground for this tour.

Re: Oxymore. January 21, 22, 23 2021

I don't know, the website doesn't say much. It's a festival, so I'm speculating that people who are at the festival can attend it.

Re: A short history of electronic music: the instruments and innovators that defined a genre

Wow! Look how history is being kind to JMJ. This sort of adulation would be unthinkable in the English music press just 15 or 20 years ago. He was derided by pretty much all music journalism. I recall scathing reviews of the Paris La Défense video release, the Images (Best of) album and the Chronol...

I'm not sure, but I thought JMJ wrote the lyrics of Les Mots Bleus for Charlotte back in 1974

Re: Moscow 1997 concert alternative video

Risking my own life, I found some more information about the Silver Rain broadcast on a Russian forum. It was a 40 minutes broadcast, in mono. After that, they played Calypso with audience noise and at the beginning there's a jingle which went like "Hello! This is Jean Michiel Jarre talking to ...

Re: Pet shop boys

Soft Cell's singer Marc Almond had a succesful solo career and had a string of hits. I love his version of Brel's Jacky. I saw him live in 2019, which I was happy to be at, he still had a great voice. The other half of the band, Dave Ball, had a huge hit in 1994 with Swamp Thing under the name the G...

Re: Pet shop boys

Looking forward to it! The Soft Cell album leaked earlier, but that didn't have the PSB collaboration version. Apparently Soft Cell liked the PSB version so much that that's become the "canon" version.
