Pet Shop Boys Biography

Review The Artist (5)

Pet Shop Boys-photo
The Pet Shop Boys are an English pop duo: keyboarder Chris Lowe and singer Neil Tennant. Neil and Chris first met in 1981 by accident in an electronics shop on the London Kings Road. They discovered their common interest in electronic music and started to write songs together. First they called themselves West End but soon changed the name into Pet Shop Boys - inspired by friends who worked in a pet shop.

Their first single West End Girls was first released in 1984. But it wasn't successful. The record company wanted to make a new song, but Neil and Chris were convinced of the yet-to-come success of this record and made a new mix, which became their first number one hit in 1986. That was the first step in becoming the world's most successful pop duo! They had more number one hits with It's a sin, Heart, Always on my mind and Go West . In 1999 they started a big comeback with their album nightlife and their successful worldtour - brilliantly titled: nightlife on tour 99/00.

I think you'll find... | Reviewer: A2TK | 4/18/12

The YMCA cover "Go West" was never a number 1 hit in the UK, with its only 'Number 1' rating coming from Germany. It only ever reached the Number 2 slot in the UK following its release 1993. That is, however, still higher than the original by YMCA... :)

Much love PSB, especially West End Girls. Big fan of that one ;)

high quality musical entertaintment | Reviewer: yanni | 10/26/11

i had never heard a better song like "go west" although my poor english don't let me digest the meaning of the lyrics!!!!! The voice of Mr. Tennant and the backroundig sound of his crew make a divine result! Only : thanks, thanks, thanks! In the meanwhile I 've lost about 15 years of still waiting for better days!.....

Good things are rare to be appreciated | Reviewer: Rose | 11/24/07

I loved them when I heard at first and still do. I never get tired of listening. Now I have been trying to convence my daughters that you gyus are great, instead of this junk music that have been played nowaday.
