Subject: New PETE BURNS!

Written By: Cory! on 09/08/10 at 4:39 pm

Okay for those of you that don't know Pete Burns was the main frontman/singer in the group Dead or Alive, most famous for their hit "You Spin Me Round (Like a Record)" Even though its pretty much just been Pete all along, he's going solo. The new song "Never Marry an Icon" is produced by The Dirty Disco and was just released yesterday on iTunes, Amazon, e-music, and any other popular digital music service. Before you say it, I know Pete sounds like a robot in the song, but that was HIS request and what he wanted. It is EXTREMELY addictive and I have literally had this song on repeat for the past day and a half now and already had to charge the iPod xP It reminds me a lot of Dead Or Alive's older stuff :)

The song is stylin'.  He's got good lyrics and the voice is electronically manipulated in today's trend.  The music has kind of an upbeat crunky sound.  He's not trying to re-hash the eighties -- it doesn't sound like "You Spin Me Round" or "Brand New Lover."

Pete Burns scares me. Music is good, but physically it scares me.  8-P

But I do like him, flashing a pic of him is the easiest way to win "did MJ have too much work done?" argument.

Pete Burns was sort of the bizarro Boy George.  Pete had sort of a Rocky Horror Frank-n-Furter act while Boy George had an Aunt Bessie act.  BUT, by the time "You Spin Me Round" hit big in the U.S., Boy George was well on his way to being another cross-dresser on H.

Well, guys the single has been canceled because of the STUPIDEST reason ever. I swear Steve Coy (former member of Dead Or Alive) has to be the worst business man ever! I can't tell you how stupid this is, you guys are just going to have to read it.

'BRISTAR' RECORDS ANNOUNCEMENT!



It is with extreme sadness, and absolute anger, that I have to announce that no further releases will be made available via digital download in the future.

This decision has been made due to the illegal posting of Pete Burns record 'Never Marry An Icon' by various individuals on YouTube, and other 'share' sites, less than a week after release. They call themselves 'Fans', but they are really the enemy! A blatant act of piracy, which is as much a product of YouTube's scandalous lack of clearance policy, which should verify ownership of copyright in any item posted on their website, but never is! And is, as far as this record label is concerned, one of the major reasons for the decline of a music industry, dying as a result of YouTube's total lack of ethics, discretion, or morality, both personally and legally.





The promo video release for 'Never Marry An Icon' has now been cancelled.

The 12'' Extended Club Remix of 'ICON' ( due for release 21/09/2010 ) is now cancelled.





All future releases by Pete Burns and Dead or Alive will be in 'physical CD & DVD format', and can only be obtained via pre-order, and pre-payment, through bristarrecords@gmail.com. Full name & postal address, together with an International Money Order, Postal Order, or Certified or Personal Cheque, will be required, at least 30 days in advance of release. Address for remittances will be sent via return email upon receipt of orders.



'THE ART' by The DIRTY DISCO featuring 'PETE BURNS', will be the next release on BRISTAR RECORDS. RELEASE DATE - NOVEMBER 1st. 2010. Formats - 7'', 12'' EXTENDED CLUB MIX, Instrumental Version.Info & Pre-Order at bristarrecords@gmail.com



All future CD/DVD releases will contain copyright management code embedded in the audio signal to prevent copying and sharing via the Internet, and will be numbered and barcoded, in order to prevent copyright breaches, as mentioned above. And to ensure a clear legal pathway to identify and prosecute any copyright theft of our product.

Obviously, the cost of obtaining future recordings and product will be higher for production and distribution of physical CD/DVD Packages, than a simple download. But Piracy is a crime, and we must make a stand against it, and people like, aliceathens@yahoo.gr , and the other people who have posted 'Never Marry An Icon' on 'share' sites, and who seem to think offering another persons work for free, without permission, must be stopped! Please feel free to contact Alice at her email address above, and get her reasons for sabotaging and destroying Pete Burns opportunity for chart placings and T.V exposure for his first solo single!Thanks to all of you for your continued support!



Lotsa Love!

Yours sincerely...,

Steve Coy

BRISTAR Records´╗┐

Regarding the above ^, Cory, I think Pete Burns and Bristar should put a sock in it. Burns, even in his heyday, was only mildly successful then and completely washed up now. He can't afford to have a hissy fit at his fans via Youtube.  ;D

Talking about failed transvetites, here's what the former lead singer of Dexy's Midnight Runners Kevin Rowland has reduced himself to...

LMAO! Seriously! :D I mean the only thing thats keeping Pete Burns in the spotlight is all the Big Brother stuff he does in the U.K.
He is really popular for that, though. and you won't believe this new announcement from Steve:

Hi Dearest DorA's

I would just like to say a great big THANK YOU!, to everyone who have sent emails to me at bristarrecords@gmail.com , your support and encouragement is very touching, and really shows what a special gang of friends and followers we have on TRS.

I have and will, take all of your comments and suggestions into consideration. And since there seems to be a real demand for the physical product in CD and DVD form, with artwork, sleeve notes etc., I will definately be implimenting production and distribution for those who order them.

As far as the digital download situation is concerned, Yes!, I do realise there are areas of the world, where people will have difficulty accessing
and buying the physical CD product, and downloadables should be made available for ease of access!

Therefore, I have reconsidered my decision, and will be making downloads available too! But I hope my point came across with regard to sharing our efforts in the public domain, which does affect the possibilities of commercial chart success, and seriously hampers efforts to spread THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO PETE!

If you want to help him, and me, please do not post the entire record on sites such as YouTube, sharebeast etc. If you feel the need to help with
the marketing and promotion, then just post a snippet of a small section ( one verse, one chorus), and include a link to sites where people can
download the record.

Finally, I will reply to everyone who emails BRISTAR, so be patient! There are a lot of you to reply to!!!

p.s Apology accepted Alice, you are forgiven!

Love and best wishes to all of you!

The reality thing has pretty much dried up for him too but should have realised he was on borrowed time with it. This is probably why Bristar are approaching things with kid gloves now nobody gives a rats about their announcement to revert back to CD. Talk about reverse-psychology backfiring...

I have watched plenty of horror films but very little has disturbed me more than the sight of Kevin Rowland hitching up his skirt to reveal his thong, lol.

Ha ha, funny stuff Jason.  ;D

That's right. Unit Four Plus Two did the original and thought it was more punchier than this limp version with the added on weirdness at the end.

Your description is quite accurate. Kevin Rowland had a penchant for showing his armpits (even back in his Dexy days). I have absolutely no idea why.

It's one thing when you're a randy young lad prancing through the streets of Glasgow.  Either way.  It's quite another when you're a 54-year-old lush!

If you do know whether or not Kevin Rowland has a drinking problem, you probably know him better than I want to know!

They do look similar. Though I think I would be less perturbed by the head in a jar, lol.

Anyone heard of the singer, Marilyn? He was another cross-dressing weird dude. You see him in this video about 46 seconds in...Not as obviously revolting as Rowland but more disturbing for some reason.  ;D

That makes sense. The 'gay drugs' scene was back in the early 80s, I very much doubted Mr. George needed an excuse.
