The Pointy Hats are part of the Pet Shop Boys persona going back years. They have had some fantastic songs over the years like Always On My Mind, Go West & Its A Sin and the song they played live at the Closing Ceremony, West End Girls, is a classic UK song.
I guess I haven't really given them enough of a chance. I'll look into it.

I was happy that there was such a Beatles presence in the closing ceremonies. And I really didn't mind Russel Brand doing I Am the Walrus, I thought it was funny. The Pet Shop Boys were so weird in their pointy-hat costumes… but then again they were always weird from what I understand. That's a band I could do without. A lot of those bands I could do without, but I suppose they wanted everyone to be able to enjoy the ceremony.
We didn't even get to see the Pet Shop Boys in Germany. I totally forgot to put on my receiver and watch BBC…
I forgot to mention the KAISER CHIEFS!
Never really heard of them, but damn, did he sound like Daltrey when he sang Pinball Wizard.
I love the Kaiser Chiefs. Don't get me wrong, their music is mostly nothing special, but I find them charming.
Some select songs for you (the first is their only really incredible track, the second is probably the best of their "normal" songs, the third is a sweet, gentler song):
