Pet Shop Boys will be joined on stage at Heaven for one song by Suggs and Carl from Madness on May 2nd during the benefit evening for Dainton Connell's family, "Can You Bear It?" As part of Pet Shop Boys' live set, a Madness classic will be performed in a new arrangement by Pet Shop Boys with vocals from Suggs and Carl from Madness. The collaboration has come about because Dainton worked as security for Madness in their early days. For more details about the evening, see the news item at top right. Meanwhile, a track written and produced by Chris Lowe with vocals by Dainton in the rave days of the early 90s has recently surfaced on iTunes and other download sites. The track was made just for fun and a few white labels of the track were distributed at the time for friends and select DJs. Now it has reappeared as "It's the Bear", attributed to an Arsenal-related band called The Riders Of The Night. Pet Shop Boys have decided to donate all rights in this track to Dainton's family so they can benefit from any exploitation of it now and in the future.
