Breathing In Fumes 7

The next instalment of Glen's Breathing In Fumes podcasts is out today. As ever it's a fantastic mix of Depeche tracks old and new with some really cool interviews thrown in. What's really interesting this time is the 1997 Ultra era interview which I guess must be from a French radio or tv show. I'd never heard it before and it really is a very revealing chat. All I can say is that every Depeche fan HAS to download this because if you don't you're missing out. The tracklist is :

Leave In Silence (Clara Intelecto 'The Last Time' Remix)
Dave, Andy and Martin 1997
Goodbye (Gesaffelstein Remix)
Martin L Gore 2009
Shake The Disease (M L Gore demo)
Policy Of Truth (Capitol Mix)
Higher Love (Adrenaline Mix)
Martin L Gore - Compulsion
Mojo Medal Presentation - Daniel Miller
Enjoy The Silence (Live - short version Vienna 2013)
The Sun and The Rainfall (Live London 1982)

A new video - "Shit Depeche Mode Fans Say"

Amanda Nichole (@MissLeliel) the chief/owner/boss of the excellent Depeche Mode blog And Then has put up a new video in the style of the Shit Girls Say videos entitled Shit Depeche Mode Fans Say. The script is based on a number of remarkable things DM fans have said on forums with a few of Amanda and Tara 's (@Dingerz) own lines in there too. It's a hilarious video that's well worth watching especially because you might hear something you said...

The video can be found here and the And Then blog here

Depeche Mode Limited Edition 12" giveaway

Ok, so the title of this blog is perhaps a bit more impressive than the content but I do have a rare Depeche Mode 12" to give away. The record is L12BONG3, the Everything Counts limited edition 12" featuring the single version of Everything Counts and 4 live tracks recorded at the Hammersmith Odeon on 25th October 1982 - New Life, Boys Say Go!, Nothing To Fear and The Meaning of Love

These 12" singles were numbered limited editions and this one is number J/0688. The only drawback is that the sleeve is slightly water damaged. I know most people (me included) prefer mint versions of records so I want to make the slight damage point perfectly clear. The vinyl itself is perfect -  I played it last night all the way through to make sure. Here are some pictures:

As you'll see numbers 2 and 3 show the sleeve in all its'....erm....glory. Anyway, like me a couple of years back you may need this to fill a hole in your collection so this may be ideal for you. Since I got the record it has been kept in a sleeve in one of my record boxes so it has been looked after well by at least one of its' owners. 


The winner is Paul Jameson - congratulations Paul!

Thanks very much to all of you that entered
