Brandon Flowers | Music | Pet Shop Boys

Tuned In: Brandon Flowers, Pet Shop Boys, More...


The Pet Shop Boys seem to be everywhere right now with their new album Fundamental. A documentary recently aired in the UK called Pet Shop Boys: A Life In Pop. Brandon Flowers of The Killers is interviewed (see clip below via Arjan) on the duo's 20-year staying power.

"No matter how you look at America, if you just see a big hamburger, or whatever it is that you see, uh, [the Pet Shop Boys] took a bite out of it. America is still getting used to the word when you've got a band that's seen as this's instantly going to be, there's going to be a wall that's gonna get put up. I think that the song for me that stood out, probably that meant something to me was "Being Boring", and I just assumed that it meant a lot to everybody. The first song that I danced to on a dancefloor in a disco was "New York City Boy". This was at a hip club in Las Vegas.

  5. Mormon, Schmormon. Those little kicks in 'Somebody Told Me' say it all.

  6. Mormon Rock? As big an oximoron as Christian Rock. It does NOT exist.
