19 August: Pet Shop Boys

Kings_Road_SW3On Wednesday 19 August 1981, in an electronics shop on the King’s Road, London, Neil Francis Tennant and Christopher Sean Lowe met.  They got talking about electronics and synthesizers and immediately hit up a friendship.  As a result, Pet Shop Boys have been collaborating and writing music, including four Number One singles, for 32 years.

And long may they continue.
