Brighton rocks (but gently)...

Neil Tennant is performing solo! Well not really. He's gassing about all things Pet Shop Boys with writer and cultural commentator Michael Bracewell as part of this year's Brighton Festival. Saturday 17th May will see the erudite singer at The Corn Exchange. To book tickets, go here. You'll need to go to the home page though to register as a 'complimentary friend'. They want your life!

But what's going on in the Pet Shop Boy's world at the moment? Over to the website:
"Chris and Neil have been writing new songs for much of this year and will continue until they feel they have enough songs for a new album. The writing sessions have proved very fertile with, so far, seven new songs being completed. Some of the songs they wrote early last year are also likely to feature on the album. Meetings with potential producers are already being lined up for March. The release date for the new album will probably be early 2009.

Pet Shop Boys have also been sketching musical ideas for their ballet which is still under discussion with Sadlers Wells theatre in London."
