July 2013

In July the Pet Shop Boys release Electric, an album with a strong dance emphasis produced by Stuart Price: "It's called Electric because that's what it is - electronic music that we hope is exciting." The album went on to receive widespread critical acclaim. Q Magazine praised the release and said “With Electric, Pet Shop Boys have succeeded spectacularly”.



Next year: 2012

On this day

1984: The first-ever live public performance by the Pet Shop Boys takes place in Ostende, Belgium.

1989: Suddenly inspired by an offhand comment made by their friend Janet Street-Porter, Chris and Neil decide on the title Results for the album they've just produced for Liza Minnelli.

1997: The Boys perform at London's Gay Pride Festival.

2002: The Release tour comes to Paris.

2009: In anticipation of their performance the following Sunday at the 'T in the Park' festival at Balado Airfield, a particularly delightful, light-hearted interview with the Boys by journalist Aiden Smith appears in the Scotland on Sunday newspaper. Neil and Chris subsequently take issue with a couple of apparent misquotes, but they're still pleased enough to link to it on their official website.

2011: After having recording equipment set up in Neil's London house, they work on 'Give It a Go,' with Neil supplying new vocals.

2013: The Pet Shop Boys perform in Tallinn, Estonia. (Earlier in the day, Chris had gotten a haircut at the city's popular 'FashionHair' salon.)
