Links Are Dead - I Know

I keep getting Emails from people asking me to re-upload the links and music etc. I think people are just getting to those particular pages so are not reading the reason for the dead links.

So I am putting this in place so hopefully people will read it and stop Emailing me about it.

The reason the links are dead is that my account with Media Fire has been closed with all 11,000 files lost. That is why you can not download the things and No I can not re-upload them.

Eventually I will start doing that again when I have found something suitable. In the meantime this blog will be information only blog.

Thank you all

Depeche Mode - New Life

'New Life' is the second UK single by Depeche Mode, originally released on 13 June 1981. It was not commercially released in the United States.

There were two versions of the song available. The 7" version would later become the "album version", as it would eventually appear on the UK version of Speak & Spell, released in October of 1981, and a 12" "remix," which differs from the "album version" in that it has a different intro, and an added synth part in the "solo" vocal section in the middle of the song, which is not present on the 7" mix. The "remix" would later appear on the US version of Speak & Spell.

The single became Depeche Mode's breakthrough hit in the UK, peaking at number 11. On 25 June 1981, the band performed 'New Life' during their debut appearance on the BBC's Top of the Pops. The band would perform the song twice more on the show, on July 16 and July 30, 1981.

The b-side, 'Shout!', is the first Depeche Mode song to get a 12" extended remix, called the "Rio Remix". This mix would later appear on the remix compilation Remixes 81–04, released in 2004. It is the earliest recorded song available on the compilation.
