RoadNeil Tennant of the Pet Shop Boys talks to Spin about rediscovering the joys of youth in Electric: "We first recorded in New York exactly 30 years ago, and we were listening to Latino dance music on the radio. I had a cassette of Madonna's first album, because I was a journalist and I had an advance. We were listening to 92KTU on the radio, and it was a very powerful influence. Somehow, it's all re-emerged on [Electric], and I don't even know how. It wasn't a deliberate strategy, but it seems to have some of that young flavor of New York in the early '80s. Throughout the album, the music's got a lot of space in it. If you listen to electronic dance music of the early '80s period, like for instance, Madonna's first album [1983's Madonna] — there's a lot of space in the music, too. It's not filled up with samples and clever keyboard parts. [That era's music] has a slightly naïve technological approach in that the synth-bass lines are probably played live, so the timing of the records is a little unsteady. If you listen to Lisa Lisa & Cult Jam's [1985 single] "I Wonder if I Take You Home," she's singing totally out of tune, but there's something really great about it."

  1. People you thought died a long time ago: Carol Channing. Go figure. Good for her.

  2. Sean Elridge and Chris Hughes must have pissed off somebody at the NYT because the paper went from drooling over their giant mansions to basically killing Elridge's chances right out of the gate. Can't say I'm too upset - I don't care if you are gay or straight, it pisses me off when the wealthy use their money to buy their way into politics (fellow gay politican Sean Patrick Mahoney is another who benefited from that playbook).

  3. Ratbastard,

    google the story on Carol Channing's paternal grandmother. It may surprise you. No wonder she always had rhythm.

  4. I still can't get over Eldridge's resume. And I am not buying for one minute that he left a top flight law school to campaign for marriage equality. Since the battle is being won- why not return to law school. And the millions he is investing are his???

    If a straight woman his age were pulling this stunt with her rich hubbies $ she would be an absolute laughingstock regardless of party.

    I just don't see what he brings to the table.

  5. Thanks for making My Husband's Lover (MHL) in your news. MHL is definitely a groundbeaking gay series. Every episode always trends high. If only I could share an English subbed vid.

  6. Not sure what to say about Sean Eldridge, except that I'm glad it's not my community he seeks to "represent."
