Bergenfest

Very heavy rain didn't stop the audience in Bergen last night from enjoying themselves and giving us a great reception! Tusen takk! Neil x (Photo from Instagram/Matt Ravenscroft)

Very excited to be launching our new 'Catalogue' series of reissues this morning. Sorry there have been a few problems with Amazon, iTunes etc. Hopefully Warner Music will sort these out soon. PSB x

Upfront Club Chart

Upfront Club Chart

The Tuff City Kidz remixes of “Undertow” entered the Music Week Upfront Club Chart in the UK last week at number 22 and this week have moved up to number 13! UPDATE: The Tuff City Kidz mixes of "Undertow" have now moved up to number 7!

Reissues

The announcement of the long-awaited new series of Catalogue reissues, including the track-listings of Further Listening bonus albums, has been delayed for a few weeks while a few minor copyright issues are being resolved. We now expect to make a full announcement later this month. Watch this space!

Bobby 'O' album

A cassette of the unreleased 1984 Bobby Orlando-produced PSB album. It was never finished – most of the tracks are rough mixes – but most of the songs were re-recorded and released over the next few years. Neil x

West End

A copy of the 1982 cassette we gave to record companies when we were West End not Pet Shop Boys. "Jealousy" was to have a future! Neil x

A present from Dusty

What a special night at the Albert Hall tonight!

And special thanks to everyone who came and supported the Teenage Cancer Trust. Neil xx Photo: Angela Becker
