mnmlist: Pet Shop Boys, Brandon Flowers & Lady GaGa @ The Brits

10 years ago on this forum, I suggested that the PSBs were beyond pop and were artists in the most sincere sense of the word. Tonight showcased that in a way that their live shows often do, but this time to a mass audience who never really understood. How gratifying to imagine the heathens finding the whole experience weirdly arcane. The audience at Earl’s Court betrayed all of the body language redolent of the fanbase during Performance in 1991: slack-jawed bemusement. What *are* we watching?  From Drico on Pet Shop Boys Community Message Board

 

See previous post. Especially No. 5

They rocked. And didn’t the new tracks, Love Etc and All Over The World, sound pretty good too?

(iTunes has 30-second snippets of the new album available now)
