1970-1971

Neil plays in a group in Newcastle called Dust: Their most popular song is a preposterous affair he has written called "Can you hear the dawn break?". They are heavily influenced by The Incredible String Band. "We were convinced we would become terribly famous. It was a very kind of stoned seventies but we used to think it was absolutely brilliant at the time".

On This Day

Chris and Neil complete their work on 'Positive Role Model' as a 'Pet Shop Boys track.' All subsequent work they do on the song is as part of Closer to Heaven.

2005

The Boys work in the studio on 'Luna Park'; they decide to 'strip it down' somewhat, making it more 'electronic' than it had been previously.

2006

They perform in Atlanta, Georgia.

2007

Neil and Chris had been scheduled to perform in Bucharest today, but that concert has been postponed so that they could attend the North London funeral of their longtime friend and assistant Dainton Connell, killed in a Moscow automobile accident two weeks before.
