The salient points

  • Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe met way back in 1981 - before electricity had been invented - yet somehow managed to make some of the best electronic dance music the world has ever known.
  • They've sold over 100m records worldwide. If you lined up all the records they've sold end to end you would have a very long line of records.
  • All ten of their studio albums have one word titles. The best of which is obviously 'Very'.
  • Both Neil and Chris are big fans of hats.
  • As well as being purveyors of perfect pop they also dabble in arty stuff like operas and musicals and ballets etc but that can be a bit hit and miss.
  • 'Hit & Miss' is one of their b-sides, you know.
  • This is so amazing it hurts.
