Bizet Boys: Ride 'Em Carmen

Year: 1998


The Pet Shop Boys have noticed from letters they have received that a lot of people are under the impression they were involved in 1989s single "Ride 'Em Carmen" by The Bizet Boys, released on Parlophone records. They would like to make clear that it was nothing to do with them whatsoever - it was made by their ex-manager Tom Watkins with Tony James, then of Sigue Sigue Sputnik. "What's more," they point out, "we don't think it's very good!"

Literally, May 1990
