The UK's most successful duo of all time need no introduction – The Pet Shop Boys' 12 UK Top 10 albums (with 7 certified platinum and total sales over 2.5 million records) and their 40 UK Top 20 singles (with 5.4 million sold in the UK alone) simply speak for themselves.
Their mountain of hit singles also contain a perhaps less well-known but equally exquisite collection of b-sides and bonus tracks. To celebrate this prolific song-writing and recording, an incredible 38 b-sides and bonus tracks have now been collected together from singles released between 1996 and 2009, to create 'Format'.
All tracks on 'Format' have been remastered and the booklet features an interview with Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe by Jon Savage (author of 'England's Dreaming' and 'Teenage').
'Format' follows on from the 1995 release, 'Alternative', which collected the duo's b-sides from 1985 to 1994.
Pet Shop Boys are currently working on their 11th studio album which is due for release in early autumn this year.
