Yes or N.O.?


‘I know Peter Saville was never one for an original idea and that perhaps Mark Farrow was actually looking at something by Elsworth Kelly or Gerhard Richter, but clearly there is a similarity here between Yes, by the PSBs, and New Order’s Confusion, that needs to be mentioned. Don’t get me wrong I’m all for plagerism and making intelligent references to drive home an idea, but not when you’re all playing in the same sand pit – come on! I guess at the end of the day it comes down to the fact that (pet shop) boys will always be (pet shop) boys.’

  1. when I first saw the sleeve ‘Yes’, it immediately reminded me of Blue Monday’s artworks.But, at the same time, I also thought of ‘Introspective’:))

  2. I’m a big fan of both the music and the artist. I think you’re stretching it a little to call them similar. Plagiarism is such a strong word in this case.
