Pet Shop Boys / Vocal CD single

Pet Shop Boys / Vocal Remixes (CD single)

Luke Haines / Rock and Roll Animals

If you thought Luke Haines‘ output couldn’t get any weirder than 2011’s hallucinogenic 9½ Psychedelic Meditations on British Wrestling of the 1970s and early ’80s, then think again. Rock and Roll Animals sees Sham 69 singer Jimmy Pursey cast as a fox, Gene Vincent as a cat, and Nick Lowe as a badger. The narrative in this concept album see these ‘rock and roll animals’ take up the fight against some birds and Antony Gormley’s Angel Of the North. Wit, warmth, and great songs make this a triumph.
