    The Pet Shop Bots? Are they some kind of vocoder/robotic dancing tribute band? Or maybe the pro-bestiality version?

    definatly not crap, a bit patchy, but Actually was one of my favourite albums of the 80s :cool: :)

    pilchardman Dances With Penguins

    A media in-joke that became pop. I thought the joke was funny, but could never take the music seriously.

    Plus they murdered a perfectly good Willie Nelson song, which is unforgivable.

    Patchy, but not crap - "Being Boring" is the only song that can reduce me to tears each and every time I hear it. :)

  13. Dr. Furface

    Dr. Furface One small step for man

    One of the greatest - and I do mean GREATEST - shows I ever went to was the Pet Shops at Wembley Arena in 89, their 1st ever live shows here. I wasn't that big a fan before but I'd read rave reviews of the shows they put on before that in Hong Kong, so I had to go and see for myself. Derek Jarman had been commissioned to make films - not videos - for most of their songs and they were brilliant (the one for Paninero was particularly memorable) and so was the music. It was only that night that I appreciated just how brilliant PSB were - even the interval, where they played the coolest techno track I've ever heard (and I haven't a clue what it was), filled the place with smoke, and beamed the most beautiful blue lights through it, was just stunning - I'd have paid money just to experience that alone! Ok, it didn 't do any harm that I'd necked one of the best e's I've ever had, but as everyone knows, e only helps make the good stuff better (and it don't make crap any better at all) and I know I would've loved that night even without it. Absolutely :)
