AS with everything they do, they do it properly. Shocked at the reality of having Chris Heath recording their every more, instead of asking for a glossier take, they agree to publish it. Warts and all. Good for them. Beats the usual bland biography

“Likewise on-stage in Hong Kong the Pet Shop Boys again do their bet no tot look triumphant. It’s obvious in Chris’s nonchalant wave as he leaves the stage after ‘Paninaro’; it’s obvious in Neil’s embarrassed half-waves and quiet ‘thank yous’; it’s most obvious of all in Chris’s habit of standing still during the songs and then, when the lights go down between each, when no one can see him, having a dance in the dark ‘because it’s so exciting’.”

I collect pop music biographies and this one is very good. If you are a Pet Shop Boys fan it's essential.The Pet Shop Boys were touring for the first time as the book was being written. They travel through Hong Kong and Japan accepting gifts of Armani underwear from mobs of screaming fans.
A must for all Pet Shop Boys lovers! Also a great book for anybody who wants to understand why I love the Pet Shop Boys so much; the book does a fantastic job of getting inside their minds.
