Neil and Chris have been very saddened to be informed that the guitarist JJ Belle died of cancer in the last few days. JJ was a brilliant musician who helped to define the Pet Shop Boys' sound, playing on many Pet Shop Boys' records – "Being boring", for instance – and also touring with them in the early 90s. We are sure that all PSB fans will want to join Neil and Chris in sending their condolences to all of JJ's family and loved ones. A condolence book has been set up on his website where more information about his life and work can also be found.

Pet Shop Boys this week will make available four brand new songs from their new EP “Agenda”. The first song on the EP, “Give stupidity a chance”, can now be listened to on streaming services, download stores and on YouTube and is described by Neil Tennant as “a satirical song about the poor quality of political leadership in the modern world”.
