Pet Shop Boys formed in London in August 1981, when vocalist Neil Tennant, who funnily enough was a former editor at Marvel Comics who later gained some recognition as a journalist for the magazine Smash Hits, first met keyboardist Chris Lowe who once was an architect at an electronics shop. When they realized they both had a shared passion for dance music and synthesizers they immediately decided to start a band. After dubbing themselves Pet Shop Boys in honor of some friends who worked in an actual pet shop while also nodding to the sort of names prevalent among the New York City hip-hop culture of the early 80s the pair's career first took flight in 1983, when Tennant met producer Bobby Orlando while on a writing assignment. Orlando produced their first single, "West End Girls."
The Most Incredible Thing was a two-disc ballet score composed for the Sadlers Wells Theater in London, showing the Pet Shop Boys' wide appeal and talent level. 2012's Format was a compilation of their B-sides and bonus tracks from the mid 90's into the 2000's. Also in 2012, the duo released the sports-themed single "Winner" and performed the track at the 2012 Olympics Summer Games which was of course held that year in their hometown of London, England. The track landed on that year's album Elysium which was produced by Andrew Dawson who frequently works with Kanye West today. 2013's Electric, an album that featured no ballads, just dance tracks has been well received and sparked somewhat of a revival for these 80's dance mainstays. Don't miss them live at Revel's Ovation Hall this April 25th, 2014!
