MARK'S NOTCAST Ep74 : Pet Shop Boys, "Actually" 1987-1988. A life changing album. 29 March 2021.
Notcast 74 : Pet Shop Boys "Actually", released in 1987, is and was a life changing album for me. It changed how I saw the world, and comforted and enlightened me by being part of my life as a teenager growing in Thatchers cruel Britain. Here, I talk about the album, the singles "It's A Sin", "What Have I Done To Deserve This?", "Rent", "Always On My Mind", "Heart", the Eighth Wonder single "I'm Not Scared", and the 1988 cinematic carcrash that was "It Couldn't Happen Here." I also talk about my formative experiences as a teenager, learning to be in a society I didn't feel wanted me to be part of it. 29 March 2021.
