Download a Press Release

August 2010

Message from Rose:

Last night the boys gave me a sneak preview of 'Never Marry an Icon'. It's been in my MP3 player ever since.

We all know that Pete could take any song and turn it into something that manages to be stylish, racy, and provocative all at once. So I had high expectations for this latest project. I was not disappointed.

'Never Marry an Icon' is a hard-hitting and propulsive track, with synth accents very reminiscent of recent Dirty Disco songs. Lots of aggressive dance beats and synthesizer riffs swirl around Pete's distinctive vocals. As for the lyrics, they're 'pure Pete'. I think I could recognize one of his singles by the cheeky, semi-autobiographical content alone. When you hear it for yourselves, you'll know exactly what I mean.

The track is being released via Steve's digital label, Bristar Records. As soon as it's available on iTunes and other commercial music download sites, I'll let everyone know.

July 2010

Pete's first solo single, 'Never Marry An Icon", will be released in the coming weeks and available for download via iTunes and other digital music sites. The track is the first release in Pete and Steve's own fledgling digital label, BRISTAR Records.

A promotional video is also being made for the single; it will also be made available as a download.

Steve has asked everyone to be patient and stay calm. He "guarantees 1000% that this is happening, pending, and imminent release news."

January 2010

'Dead or Alive LIVE' !

Pete and Steve are in the process of together a band with a view to touring this summer. The shows will celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the release of 'You Spin Me Round (Like A Record) ', and will showcase the new songs and tracks that Pete and Steve have been working on, including 'The ART' AND 'Never Marry An Icon', (release dates imminent)

In addition, open auditions for band members to join and play on the up-coming tour will begin in February, and Pete and Steve would like
any musicians interested to submit a C.V, with photos, and video link if possible to gigrequests@deadoralive.net. They are looking for keyboard players/programmers, guitar/bass players, drummer/percussionist, backing singers.

Agents and promoters are welcome to submit offers for dates to TRS, which will be forwarded directly to Pete and Steve for consideration.

Deadline for submissions is Feb 28th 2010, so if you are looking for an exciting and different Summer, get moving!

Love Pete and Steve

June 27- on the set of "Pete's P.A." message from Rose, site webmistress:

I was lucky enough to spend part of the week of June 18-22 on the set of the upcoming Living TV series “Pete’s P.A.” As Pete’s fan, it was an unforgettable experience to be able to watch him at work, enlivening the set with his quick wit and colorful humor. As Pete’s friend, I was proud of the professionalism with which he and Michael tackled each day’s worth of interviews, panel discussions, and activities planned by the potential P.A.s. Think television is easy? It is…only if you’re merely watching it.

Pete and Michael have gone through one adventure after another as teams of aspiring P.A.s schemed and scrambled to impress them. Each day has brought forth a succession of welcome surprises and cringing embarrassments. No spoilers here, but I will say that I had the chance to participate in some
of the fun when the cameras were off. I visited a London hotel where the house champagne averaged three hundred pounds a bottle, strolled through exclusive shops where a commoner like yours truly would normally be classed as a ‘suspicious person’, and even had a whip land across my rear during an unobservant moment. It was wild, it was fun, and most important of all,
never boring.

I met all of the potential P.A.s still in the running at the time of my arrival, and was entertained, impressed, and sometimes horrified at the
lengths they went to in order to achieve the ultimate goal: become Pete’s P.A. The series will air in September on Living TV, and you can, in Pete’s own words, “expect the unexpected.”

-Rose
