    No mention of Erasure yet? :shy:

    Mind you, they seem to be quite content with their lot in life of just making music they like and touring for an existing fanbase, at their own leisurely pace, and don't have any delusions of reaching out to the masses and reeling in da yoof at all cost. That's a big difference with PSB who probably ARE still hungry to be relevant and present in pop culture (at least as late as the Yes album featuring Xenomania).

    But Oasis were playing enormostadiums and massive outdoor spaces like Heaton Park right until the end before they suddenly split. You could argue that there was a demand for them right up until the end.

    Pet Shop Boys. Two good singles since the turn of the century and they're still churning them out.

    I think all that says is that their hardcore fanbase is larger.

    And a few months later, they released the exceptional "Rewind The Film" followed by the joyous "Futurology". Yet again, octy miserably fails to see the future peeking through.

    In fairness to me, their last album at the time of that post was Postcards From A Young Man which I didn't even get through a second time because it's so fucking awful. It's even worse than Know Your Enemy; at least KYE had some ambition, it just missed most of its targets. Postcards was dire. So that plus the silence that followed their failed GH, National Treasures, made me feel they had finally gone off.

    I was wrong.

    As always.

    when you've released around 10 singles already and keep bringing up that your "proper" first single is coming out soon I think it's PRETTYMUCH the time to hang your coat and LEAVE

    'Shelf life' is almost a redundant term, isn't it?

    I quite liked Postcards from a Young Man :evil: It had 1 or 2 less good tracks, but overall, there's nothing wrong with it.

    Probably. Look at Neneh Cherry, probably considered an 80's relic by some but her last album was an absolute peach.
