pet shop boys

Thursday Afternoon Delight: Pulp reunite, Nirvana covers, non-news for Radiohead, Neil Young Started the Fire, and more...

Lots of odd items in the roundup today.  My favorite is the Neil Young story about his Hybrid car exploding.  That's just good/bad stuff right there.


Dancing with the Pet Shop Boys

On February 3 (UK) the Pet Shop Boys will release their third album in the 'Disco' series. Following in the tradition of previous 'Disco' albums, Disco 3 will be complimenting the recent studio releases, but in a new twist Disco 3 includes new tracks recorded during the studio sessions but not previously released.

The album will contain 10 dance tracks that were created during the studio sessions that begat 'Release' in 2002. It will be available on CD or the limited edition three-disc vinyl format (featuring extra remixes by Felix da Housecat and Westbam). The highlight of the new 'Disco 3' release could be the track that was written in 1983 by original PSB producer Bobby 'O'.


Pet Shop Boys Prepare A Musical

The Pet Shop Boys are working on a musical with playwright Jonathan Harvey (Beautiful Thing). They will be using extra tracks that didn't make on their current release, "Nightlife". The play, which remains title-less, is expected to open next year if everything works out.

Pet Shop Boys Finish Up Album

Dotmusic is reporting that the new PET SHOP BOYS album is nearly finished, and features vocal contributions from KYLIE MINOGUE.
