GusGus on stage with 2 huge Eurorack modulars

GusGus at the opening ceremony of the Reykjavik Concert Hall "Harpa".

Do check out their latest 2011 album Arabian Horse which is excellent.

Original Pet Shop Boys Page R sequences for Opportunities live version

David over at the Yahoo Fairlight Group was kind enough to record the original Blue Weaver Page R sequences that came with his Series IIx. These sequences are from the Pet Shop Boys song Opportunities and were used for their live performance on The BBC's Old Grey Whistle Test in 1986.
