Ah, the genius of the Pet Shop Boys – so many peerless, era-defining records. And when it comes to gay landmark tunes so many to choose from, too, from the resigned claustrophobia of ‘Rent’ to the elegant elegiac ‘Being Boring’ to the silly, tarty fun of ‘New York City Boy’. ‘The Truck Driver And His Mate’ (officially a B-side, actually) is a slightly different beast however. A great big howling BRUTE of a record it’s the closest we’ll probably ever get to hearing the fellas ROCK OUT. Quite simply, ‘Truck-Driver’ stomps round your speakers like a disappointed Dawn Davenport on Christmas morning. Top marks to Neil and Chris, too, for sticking great big hairy cocks on the sleeve of the promos.
