Who are Pet Shop Boys?
Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe met in 1991.
Discovering they had a shared interest in dance and electronic music, they began to work together on material.
At the time, Tenant was working for Smash Hits magazine. On a trip to New York, he gave a demo tape to music producer Bobby Orlando and things quickly took off from there.
West End Girls was their big break-through hit, establishing them as a major name in the music industry.
