Somehow think I’m co-opting the term “hero” for what is actual fandom, but who cares!
The Pet Shop Boys are heroes of mine because they continue to impress me with intellectual lyrics and catchy melodies. Their latest album, Yes, is the first once since Very that I HAVE to play over and over again, which makes me quite excited about their upcoming USA tour. And there in lies the rub–the blessed boys have chosen tour dates and cities that are most inconvenient to the start of an academic year, but I’m somehow going to make it work!
I’ve seen them 5 times already, all with my PSB partner in crime, Joe G, and we’re not going to let work schedules and real life responsibility get in our way now! LOL.
Here’s their brief interview and full performance of “Love, ETC” on the Graham Norton show.
