Depeche Mode - See You

1982 12" from Basildon's finest.

Synth-pop era DM, back when 12"s were a pure rip off, as per the track times on this 12" - two tracks each coming in at under 5mins? Get tae fuck. Just as well I bought it way after the event and paid under the odds, then.

It's not so much about the A-side which I'm sure you'll be familiar with (albeit with its 'regular' timing), this one's all about the flip where the backing track sounds like it's being played too fast until the vocal comes in. It's a lost gem of a DM track - just the ticket to get you in the mood if you're off to see them on the current tour.

When I saw them earlier in the year it was in a stadium with a great sound system in a beautiful city in the summer. How it'll fair at the aircraft hangar that is the SECC in pissing wet misty Glasgow in darkest December's anyone's guess. I'll still be there tomorrow night though, might even venture down the front...

Oh, I used to love this one.
Why, Oh why did I put all those electronic oldskool stuff down in the garbage room where I lived in 1993. I had to get rid of a couple of stacks and I regret that I got rid of a lot of stuff, like for example the original 12" of Liaisons Dangereuses "Los NiƱos Del Parque" and more.

For some reason I saved my copy of "Love In Itself" by DM. The b-side track "Fools" is also a hidden gem like the one you're displaying here.
