Neil Tennant’s Biography

Childhood

As a child, Neil was a student at St. Cuthbert’s Grammar School, a Catholic school for children only in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne (where he also studied Sting). The songs “This must be the place I waited years to leave” and “It’s a Sin” refer to his early years in this Catholic school and to the strict Catholic education. “It’s a Sin” was the subject of controversy due to its implicit criticism of religious education.

At this time, Neil learned to play guitar and cello. At 16, he was part of a group called Dust. His most popular song was called “Can you hear the dawn break?” and they were very influenced by The Incredible String Band.

Later life

In 1975, after studying History of Art at the Polytechnic of North London, Neil worked for a brief period as editor in the British branch of Marvel Comics. Its mission was to adapt the dialogues of the Marvel catalog to British readers, as well as to indicate where it was necessary to redraw too exuberant women to make them more decent for British editions. In 1977, he left this work for another in Macdonald Educational Publishing, which would later be called ITV Books. In 1982, he joined the youth pop magazine Smash Hits, where he reached the position of assistant editor.

While working at Smash Hits, he had the opportunity to travel to New York and interview The Police. While there, Tennant met Bobby Orlando, a very successful dance music producer in the eighties (Divine, Roni Griffith, The Flirts, The New York Models, Waterfront Home, etc.), whom both he and Lowe admired. Tennant mentioned that he wrote songs in his free time and Orlando agreed to record some of his songs later. Orlando would produce the first Pet Shop Boys single, “West End Girls,” released in April 1984, succeeding only in Belgium, France, and the American West Coast. In the UK he only got the number 121 on the singles list.
