On this day

1963: Future Smiths/Electronic guitarist and frequent PSB collaborator John Maher—better known as Johnny Marr—is born in Manchester, U.K.

1984: The Pet Shop Boys sign a five-year management contract with Tom Watkins of Massive Management.

1999: The Boys perform at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada.

2010: Continuing the promotional activities related to the new PSB hits collection Ultimate, Neil is featured on Matt Everitt's BBC6 radio show The First Time. The music programmed for the show includes not only several PSB numbers but also tracks by other artists that have influenced them or otherwise played a role in their history, including (among others) the Beatles' 'Fool on the Hill,' the Incredible String Band's 'October,' the Flirts' 'Passion,' Donna Summer's 'I Feel Love,' and, perhaps most surprisingly, Isao Tomita's electronic rendition of Debussy's 'The Girl with the Flaxen Hair.'

Came down from the North
You know the way they do
Got a cheeky smile
