Pet Shop Boys  

"We're a brand now, so fans always have advice for us. Actually, it's exactly how I am about David Bowie. I met him backstage, and, being a fan type, I said, 'Why haven't you released 'Hello Spaceboy' as a single? It's the only single on the album.' Which is exactly what people do to us. They get annoyed, because these two stupid old gits - us - are ruining the Pet Shop Boys project."

John I'm Only Dancing new [re: EJSunday]  

"1972 was a pretty good summer in my life, and this [John I'm Only Dancing] was the record that was doing it. I was a real David Bowie fan, I had my hair cropped. We liked all the sexual ambivalence of the lyrics, and the weird feedback noise at the end. It was a very hot summer in 1972 and I'd just left school, and was about to go to college in London."

Ashes to Ashes Video new [re: EJSunday]  

"I do think that the video [for Don't Know What You Want But I Can't Give It Anymore] is quite New Romantic," says Neil, "But New Romanticism worked for such a short period of time, didn't it? And needless to say David Bowie had the best moment in it by leaping in about two hours after it all started with the video for Ashes to Ashes. That really is the ultimate New Romantic video, although there's probably some good ones by Steve Strange and Visage."

Neil Tennant, Guardian Unlimited 1999

Hallo Spaceboy new [re: Adam]  

"David Bowie's definitely a bit scared of pop. I was surprised he knew anything about us because compared to him, we are pop music. And it's not really his area."

(Regarding Hallo Spaceboy which was played when supporting their colleague on a festival bill......)

"He came into our dressing room and said (adopts macho rock posturing voice) 'We do the more dangerous version of it,' and I thought 'Oh, you tragedy!' But he is great. I love him!".

Re: Pet Shop Boys new [re: EJSunday]  

"At 17, I wanted to be Bowie. He changed our lives after being on The Old Grey Whistle Test in 1972. I didn't have the money to buy albums then so we'd go to the classical department of another store, Windows, and ask to hear Hunky Dory in the stereo listening booth."

Neil Tennant, Mojo #178 (September 2008)
