PSB: Nightlife Tour Arrangement MP3s

Yep, that’s the Nightlife condom!

During the Nightlife Tour, a number of the tracks were rearranged by Peter Schwartz.  Eventually they made their way onto the internet and subsequently to a CDR of questionable quality.  I was only reminded of these tracks this morning when they appeared on a Facebook page, and I thought I’d unearth the tracks I ‘remastered’ a while back.

  1. Being Boring
  2. It’s a Sin
  3. It’s Alright
  4. Interlude (Can You Forgive Her?)
  5. Only The Wind
  6. Shameless
  7. West End Girls
  8. What Have I Done to Deserve This?

Facebook contact Stevie DjBoy Nicholl waited patiently in line this morning for his Kylie single*.  And got a couple of other things while he was there, as you can see from his photo.  *Kylie single was for a friend, he asserted.  Riiight.  😉  There’s another (better) photo coming in a second.  I wanted to get the Kylie one in just in case the second photo doesn’t include it!

Pet Shop Boys: ‘The Noise’ Theme Tune

The_Noise

 

‘The Noise’ was a magazine show from 1996, broadcast after the CITV slot on Saturdays at around 11am.  It was presented by Andi Peters and was about music.

Not a lot of people know that the Theme to The Noise was actually written by Pet Shop Boys.  The show was a total flop and a second series wasn’t commissioned.

You can download a zipped MP3 of the Theme Tune HERE.
