It turns out that this was the Pet Shop Boys' first, and only, number one album which was a surprise to both of us considering how big they were in the latter half of the 1980s but neither of us had actually heard a PSB's album in full before so we went into this with pretty high hopes that there would be some gems inside. Just how many gems we did uncover remains to be seen.
But we also chatted about other classic acts such as Afghan Whigs, Duff McKagan and Dave gets to give us a very level-headed opinion on Damon Albarn and Blur. Fun times. You can hear the full Pet Shop Boys album as well as loads of the bands and songs we chat about on this episode's companion Spotify playlist.
As always come and say hello on our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages where we always post terrible jokes about the most recent album we've done so you can give us grief on there. And check out our ongoing Spotify compilation playlist featuring "the best" songs from every single number one album we've done to date.
Thanks as always to everyone who has given us the price of a pint on our paypal or even just spread the word and told some friends about our show - it warms our hearts every time we get mentioned in a Twitter thread asking what podcasts people are listening to or would recommend to others. Until next time!
