Rammstein's soon to be released first single, Mein Teil, will feature several remixes. Arthur Baker and the Pet Shop Boys have taken their hand to the work of Rammstein, and we can't wait to hear what they have come up with.
An introduction to the Pet Shop Boys is most likely unnecessary. Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe started making music together in 1981, and since then they have frequently topped the international charts. Their history of experimental remixes is now continued with the work of Rammstein's single "Mein Teil".
The Pet Shop Boys have created a main mix and a 7" mix for "Mein Teil" called "PSB You are what you eat Mix" and an electro mix called "PSB There are no guitars on this Mix". At the moment, Rammstein has not decided which versions will be included in their release. Be sure to visit Rammstein's official website for all the release details.
On Monday, June 7, a new Pete Burns single, "Jack And Jill Party", was released, written and produced by Pet Shop Boys.
The song was written by Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe last year. Shortly after completing it, they saw Dead Or Alive singer Pete Burns talking on the TV show, "Diners" and thought that the song would suit his voice. Coincidentally, shortly afterwards Neil Tennant bumped into Pete Burns at the London club night, Nag Nag Nag, and asked him if he'd be interested in recording the song with them.
Pete, Neil and Chris finally got together at the Pet Shop Boys' studio earlier this year and recorded the song, Pete Burns adapting some of the lyrics to suit his style.
The record is released by Pet Shop Boys label, Olde English, on CD and 12" vinyl and is only available for sale through their website: www.petshopboys.co.uk.
There are three mixes:
1. Extended dance mix 2. Single mix 3. Instrumental
"Jack And Jill Party" is an American slang expression which seems to have several meanings. Here are two:
1. A party attended by both gay men and women. 2. A man in a simultaneous relationship with a man (Jack) and a woman (Jill).
This is seriously sexy stuff from the world's most famous bottom displayer. "Chocolate" is taken from Kylie's magnificent "Body Language" album and features a vocal from the diminutive pop princess that literally drips with sensuality. We know the effect that chocolate is supposed to have on women, but with "Chocolate" Kylie may recreate the feeling in men as well. Saucy!
Chocolate is released on 2 CDs and a 12" on June 28!
The glam rock anthem "Laura" is taken from the Scissor Sisters hugely successful self-titled debut album that has had critics and music fans salivating with pleasure throughout 2004. The New York indie-popsters have become the band of the year and "Laura" is set to continue their meteoric rise into the stratosphere of musical greatness.
Agnetha Faltskog - When You Walk Into The Room (CDs 2 track, CDs 3 track)
The second single to be taken from Agnetha Faltskog's "My Colouring Book"??album (following "If I Ever Thought You'd Ever Change Your Mind"), is a fantastic interpretation of a former Searchers hit. Upbeat and fun this proves that there really is life after Abba.
