They’re a go to band if you are stoned. They’re not your normal prog rock shit. 

They're prog rock for girls & people who can't count.

The Pet Shop Boys have contributed as much to electronic music and pop as Cream did to rock.

Fair enough, I just can't compare anyone who plays an instrument to anyone who pushes buttons on an electronic thingy.

I need to check him out more to be honest. I've only really listened to him on when listening to other bands he's worked with. 

 

Where's the best place to start

Silk Degrees is top Boz, great writing , great playing (Porcaro Brothers)

 

The two albums he sang on with Steve Miller are interesting as well.

To be honest I've only had 3 albums, the one you showed recorded at Muscle Shoals, Boz Scaggs and Band which is more of a big band sound on some tracks which is great and then Silk Degrees again totally different as it's like polished discoish. 

I think he played with Steve Miller Band, I need to check him out a bit more myself. 

He did a good turn on Jools Holland a while back, with his band.

Yes it is, I've been meaning to check the latter out for ages, what are they called? Had a few Steve Miller over the years  but can't recall Boz Scaggs being on them, I'll have to google him.

It would be interesting to know why electronic music is so underappreciated. Is it snobbery about electronic instruments, a misplaced belief that the artists aren't "making" the noise themselves because they're not bashing or strumming something? A musical Neo-Luddism? Does rock music appeal to something ancestral, dating back to when our caveman ancestors were literally banging rocks together?

The Prodigy does not seem to have any issue with getting people excited about seeing them live. 

Are they electronic?

Great picture. Looks like a Renaissance painting. Would make a great puzzle. There’s a similar one of deli Ali scoring at Chelsea. I love angry away fans.
