Lowe stated in a Entertainment Tonight interview:. I don't like country and western. I don't like rock music, I don't like rockabilly or rock and roll particularly. I don't like much, really, do I? But what I do like, I love passionately. The quote was subsequently sampled in the song " Paninaro ", and further established the band's early reputation of being anti- rock'n'roll and aligned with disco and dance music culture. Music journalist Steve Harnell describes them as having both an "ear for commerciality" and the desire to create "something more highbrow".

He also described Tennant's lyrics as showing a "love for language", which Tennant sparkles with sometimes quite-obscure cultural references. Their band dynamic has played a role in their public image as well. Early in their career, the duo were frequently accused of lacking stage presence, said to be a deliberate reaction to the hyper-cheerful music of the time, demonstrated by bands such as Wham!

A typical early performance featured Lowe in the background playing the bassline on a Fairlight synthesiser keyboard and Tennant singing, but otherwise passive, in the foreground. Tennant and Lowe both became well known for standing still throughout performances.

In a interview, Chris Lowe said the duo's live performances was a response to the music scene in the s: "Everyone was Divine - Love Reaction (Special Disco Mix) (Vinyl) active.

It was a big party where everyone was having a great time and smiling at the camera. Thumbs aloft! We just didn't want to do that.

So we ignored the cameras and the jollity of the situations. Let's face it, it's easier to stand stock-still isn't it? When they first began touring, inthey were heavily influenced by opera and theatre staging. Derek Jarman staged their first tourmaking a series of films to be projected behind the costumed singers and dancers. Inthey brought in David Alden and David Fielding, from the English National Operato create the staging and costume design, for a show which made little attempt to involve or even acknowledge the audience and pushed the choreography and staging centre-stage.

The Fundamentalism tour in — was conceived and designed by theatre designer Es Devlinwith choreography by Hakeem Onibudo.

Es Devlin also conceived the — Pandemonium Tour as well as the Electric Tour beginning in Typically, Pet Shop Boys have favoured avant-garde tailored fashions. Presentation has always been a major theme for Pet Shop Boys and the duo have dramatically "re-invented" their image twice in their career.

Inwhen promoting their Very album, they wore brightly-coloured costumes and used state-of-the-art computer technology to place themselves in a modern computer graphic world. This concept of re-invention was revisited for the promotion of their Nightlife album, in which they transformed their look, wearing wigs and glasses, with stylised futuristic urban wardrobes.

The duo have always been interested in the artworkdesign and photography of their own releases. Photographer Eric Watson helped shape the original image of Pet Shop Boys, creating many of their photographs and videos from to In design they have primarily worked with Mark Farrowwho designed the cover of their first Parlophone album release in Their record sleeves are quite often very minimal and the attention to detail is obvious.

A German-language edition was also published. An exhibition of photographs of Pet Shop Boys was organised at the National Portrait Gallery in London to coincide with the publication.

Even the band's fan base has been subject to commentary. Inmusic theorist Fred Everett Maus wrote that, contrary to the ideologies of anti-commercialism and authenticity embodied by "serious" discussions of popular music such as rock, Pet Shop Boys fans exhibit "an undisguised love of commercial success".

This was demonstrated through mailing list discussions from onwards, in which fans voiced concern over the "most commercially promising selection and marketing of singles" for the then-upcoming Nightlifeand debated the quality of the then-recent Bilingualspurred by the album's poorer performance in sales. Most posters, Maus summarised, feared that the band's appeal would become essentially limited to a cult following ; "dissent, along the lines that the fans would always have the Pet Shop Boys, no matter what happened commercially, was scarce and ineffectual".

Noting the fact that Pet Shop Boys "began their career with hits", Maus made the point that this early success was valued by fans: the band's "large audiences" were just as important to "many fans" as the making of "distinctive music that individual fans loved". The Pet Shop Boys have been noted for keeping their fingers on the musical pulse to date, while "maintaining the mystique of performers from a different era".

In the liner notes to their greatest hits albumDiscographythe band states that: "When we wrote this song "Heart" we wanted to submit it to Madonna but didn't dare risk disappointment. Later, inMadonna was referenced in a tongue-in-cheek lyric, in the song " DJ Culture ", soon after she and Sean Penn had divorced.

Pet Shop Boys then remixed " Sorry ", the second single from the album. Madonna has used their version in her Confessions tour. In Octobera Swedish tribute band called West End Girls had a number three hit single in their home country, with a cover version of " Domino Dancing ".
