Fiscerspooner Wishes You Happy Everything
Check out this year's Fischerspooner holiday card featuring the duo in their idiosyncratic poses. Casey is looking fierce as a glorious Greek god (somewhat resembling an Oscar statue). Lovely photo gents, now go and finish that new record. And of course Happy Everything to the two of you too! (Click to enlarge)
Who needs Spiderman if you can have Jake Shears? Check out this fantastic superhero shot of Shears giving it his all (as usual) on stage in Birmingham on Tuesday evening. Paul saw the show and wrote a brief review. He writes that one of the night's highlights was the performance of "Land Of A Thousand Words, "the best Bond theme never written and performed below thousands of twinkling lights." If you missed the excellent new video for the new Scissor Sisters video, catch it here.
Scissor Sisters New Single Rumors
Psst! A source close to Scissor Sisters told me last night that the new single for the group in the U.K. will probably be the epic ballad "Land Of A Thousand Words." The second single choice for the U.S. is still up the air, but I think it should be "Ooh." Keep up the tempo guys!
When you have moment, check out Kevin's fantastic photos of Scissor Sisters' gig in New York last Saturday. He caught Jake tearing up a boa, because he "hates feather boas," he told the audience.
Photos: Pet Shop Boys Live
Check out my photos of the Pet Shops Boys' concert last Thursday on Flickr. I shot over 300 photos, but I selected the 92 best ones for you. As you can tell from the shots, the dancers and singers were as prominent on stage as the Pet Shop Boys themselves. Enjoy the photos.
