Hilarious early DM press release

If you’re on Twitter, I’m sure you saw this, but we had to share this for anyone who may have missed it. In an amazing score on Ebay, Brat ( found this hilarious early press release for Depeche that you just have to read. I don’t even know where to start with the highlights, it’s just one of those things you have to read. It’s classic Mode in it’s self-depreciation, but also in it’s forecasting of things to come. My personal favorite is them siting “The Buggles” (Video Killed The Radio Star) as an influence, just comedy right there. That’s a joke right? I can actually hear Daniel Miller’s voice in my head when that was written down, lol. A very cool piece of DM and Mute Records history and a must read for any fan!
