Album of the Day
The Pet Shop Boys were mad as hell, and not going to take it anymore. Dedicating the record to executed Iranian gay teenagers, Mahmoud Asgari and Ayaz Marhoni, FUNDAMENTAL is one of the duo’s most politically charged albums. Produced by the band alongside the legendary Trevor Horn, the album burst on the UK charts to debut at #5 in the UK. The sardonic first single from the LP, I’M WITH STUPID, peaked at #8, making it the 21st(!) top 10 single for Chris Lowe and Neil Tennant. Considering October 4th is Lowe’s birthday, there’s no better time than the present to cue up this underrated PSB offering that delves into the dark side of the dance floor.
