On this day

1988: After the Boys help pay for a gay-supportive anti-Clause 28 newspaper ad, a spokesman tells the Daily Mirror that 'they support a variety of causes.'

2000: The Boys perform in Berlin.

2005: Neil finishes recording vocals for 'Fugitive.'

2007: The Pet Shop Boys had been nominated for two Grammy Awards—Best Dance/Electronic Album and Best Dance Single—but lose out to Madonna and Justin Timberlake, respectively.

2008: Chris appears as a witness at St. Pancras Coroner's Court in London during the inquest into the death of PSB friend and assistant Dainton Connell in an automobile accident the previous October in Moscow. He testifies how he'd seen Dainton only shortly before the accident at a dinner celebrating his (Chris's) birthday.

2009: Despite the fact that he's suffering from a nasty bout of either food poisoning or stomach flu, Neil is interviewed via telephone for a radio show on various subjects, including the upcoming new album Yes, the Brits Awards, and submitting a song shortly before Christmas to Shirley Bassey, who's in the process of recording a new album of her own.

2011: They begin writing a new song titled 'Vocal.'
