I used to record off the radio a lot (the first wave of pirating) and sometimes I'd leave a 90min (45 a side) just recording while I wasn't listening, then go back and dub the ones I liked onto another tape. One day I captured this. It blew me away.
A few years ago I found the 12" single on vinyl. It was every bit I remembered!

WOW!! If you played that to me blind, I'd have NEVER guessed Depeche Mode. It sounds like Dave, but wow, it does NOT sound like him. Awesome post.

Reliving my 80s days. I had 3 staple bands I would listen to religiously. U2, The Jam and Echo and the Bunnymen. I could NOT get enough of E and the B men.

Here's "The cutter" for the uninitiated.

F'n YA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love Echo!!

Saw them a few years ago in your neck or the woods at the Music Hall in London. Still great.

Just checked my photos... can't believe that was Aug 2017!!

The one I posted isn't their original kick at this tune. Music for the Masses has this version. The "Beatmasters Remix" is (technically) not DM.

Never heard of this guy before, but I heard this song on the way in this morning. It sounds so old!! I love the horns, and back-up singers. So well arranged.
