The first version of 'West End girls' is released. It is a club hit in Los Angeles and San Francisco and a small hit in France and Belgium.
They make their first ever stage appearance at the Fridge Nightclub in Brixton, singing and playing over tapes.
On This Day
The Pet Shop Boys take first place in the Top of the Pops viewers' poll for their performance on the show of 'I Don't Know What You Want But I Can't Give It Any More.'
They perform at the 'Singfest' in Singapore—although technically it's the next day (August 9) since the start of their set is delayed by preceding acts and doesn't begin until shortly after midnight.
