“It was just much easier to work with... If you had the Atari, some MIDI synths and a few samplers, you had a really flexible set-up.”
– Pete Gleadall / Pet Shop Boys (Engineer, Producer)
British musician Pete Gleadall is a true jack of all trades when it comes to studio work. His credits include producing, engineering, programming and songwriting for the likes of George Michael, David Bowie, Robbie Williams, Madonna, U2, Kylie and Take That among others.

The album to the song: Behaviour contains Was It Worth It?
