Robbie and the PSB are tranced

For the first great tune for 2009, watch this. It's Robbie William's vocals from his PSB cover, We're the Pet Shop Boys, fed through a trance mincer by Dutch DJ Sander van Doorn and, having been around for a couple of months, gets an official digital release on iTunes tomorrow. Close My Eyes appears on Cream's mammoth Future Trance compilation and is majestic. It highlights how suited Robbie's vocals are to dance tracks. I've always thought his more mournful stuff would make great techno. In fact, a friend once mentioned Feel as the ideal song for a dance makover so if anyone knows of a version already out there, let me know!

i've rather fallen in love with Rudebox 1974 after cruelly dismissing most of it when it came out. Which is shocking because i loyally stood by Robbie through the pie years, the successful years and the intensive care years. Time to take him to my bosom again methinks.

I'm just sooo glad he fell out with the most rubbish rapper ever, 50 Pence (Cent - Mr Gruntathon). Can you imagine the what rubbish they would have done together...

Where is Robbie? Has he gone all bearded and naked to the Burning Man festival or something? (A very American reference, sorry).
