Neil Tennant: "Working at Xenomania reminded me of working at Smash Hits"

Pet Shop Boys on old cover of Smash Hits Pet Shop Boys' Neil Tennant has compared working with Xenomania to when he worked as a writer and assistant editor for defunct pop magazine Smash Hits.

Speaking to Q Magazine of their time with Brian Higgins, Tennant said: «He loves hit records, but he really takes the biscuit».

«Working at Xenomania reminded me of working at Smash Hits 'cos you've got this house full of people and they're all totally into music. They all have comments to make. A truly great atmosphere.»

Talking of their unorthodox studio methods, Tennant added that Higgins was supportive but "ruthless" with his opinion on the songs produced, saying: «You get marked [in a similar way to] on iTunes, where you have a star rating, and you get comments. You get quite chuffed: "Brian thinks my bridge is brilliant".»

This month's Q magazine has an interview with the duo and a review of Yes (rated 3/5).
