Are Depeche Mode a good band?

Health insurance rip off lying FDA big bankers buying
Fake computer crashes dining
Cloning while they're multiplying
Fashion shoots with Beck and Hanson
Courtney Love, and Marilyn Manson
You're all fakes
Run to your mansions
Come around
We'll kick your ass in

Oh you're in the area? I didn't know that - gonna have to check out that Rabbit Hole place cos I've never heard of it.

Yep, I am gonna try and get down there on Friday for Jerry's great unloading. Not so much for LPs cos they are most likely the standard dollar bin stuff but I am very curious and hopeful about the 45s he's offering. There's another independent record sale this weekend on Saturday - some dude in Brookline. Lots of new wave, post-punk type stuff. I can pass along the address if yr interested! I think this guy knows what he has and priced accordingly (had an OG Metal Box at the last one set at $60-something) but not exorbitant or anything.

If you want another disappointing OMD record you can have my copy of The Pacific Age for free. I haven't quite brought myself to give up Crush yet

Sure. Is it at rather ripped records or is it something else?

Yeah it's def not a bad album but for me it's the demarcation point where their albums started to be a bit stale beyond the singles. Crush is the headfirst dive into that territory

Got a major soft spot for that "sailing the seven seas" jam from Sugar Tax tho

I mean their mid to late 80's aesthetics it's like at the very least martin gore!?

Possibly gayest hetero band ever.


And ok i didn't realise until now Fan club was ALSO published in english.


Apparently the grande bibliotheque has copies of Fan Club in their collection. I have to pick up a book i reserved anyway, so i’ll probably take a look at them on the weekend (I’m a nostalgic dork).
