Typeface based on Pet Shop Boys' album "Nightlife," their single "New York City Boy," and their "Montage" concert tour (1999–2000).  While a fan TTF was made by Footnote Fonts in 1999 (as well as a couple of, um, 'unofficial variants' of that design by other folks over the next two years), almost 21 years later here is MY take on it in FontStruct.  The following letters are taken from existing artwork: A B C E F G H I K L M N O P R S T U W X Y; all other glyphs are by Goatmeal.  Due to the design's height restriction, I couldn't figure out a suitable $.

========================================

Update: March 01,  2022 - Numerals 0–9 taken from the tracklist number designs of the "Nightlife" Promo CD.

========================================

Update: December 02,  2023 - Corrected V from existing artwork for the "Nightlife" Ringbinder Double CD Promo (2nd disc is labeled INTERVIEW).

While making a custom cover for a recently-acquired compact disc (remember those?), I realized I needed this font.  Instead of using a fan version made over 20 years, I had a go at it myself and this is the result.

It says "Nighlife" and not "Nightlife" in the descripton…

@BWM - Thanks.  Was a last minute change, and I didn't proofread as well as I should (one of my many failings posting here)...  :^(   I'm just glad it was in a place where I _could_ edit it correctly.  :^)

I like it, well done.

@elmoyenique - Thanks!  It's a very simple design, but I like it, too.  :^)

There is a version of this album font made by Footnote Fonts with lowercase and accents (c. 2007), but I like yours better.

@elmoyenique - Thank you for the kind words, my friend.  Yes, I noted the Footnote Fonts version in the intial description above, but the version I have is from 1999...  ;^)
