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 - Master And Servant

'Master and Servant' is Depeche Mode's eleventh UK single (released on August 20, 1984) and the second single from the Some Great Reward album.

Despite a lot of controversy surrounding the song, it still managed to reach number 9 in the UK Singles Chart.

'Master and Servant' comes with the 'Slavery Whip Mix', the longest 12" DM song at the time with the outro being turned into a swing version of the refrain, and the "Voxless" version which is an instrumental mix of the song.

The B-side is '(Set Me Free) Remotivate Me', its Release Mix is the 12" version. The 7" version edits out much of the beginning.

The 'Master and Servant' music video was directed by Clive Richardson.

The overtly sexual, BDSM-themed lyrics of 'Master and Servant' - complete with synthesized whip-and-chain sound effects - reportedly got the song banned by many radio stations in the United States (although the song reached the Billboard Hot 100 chart anyway, albeit only at number 87 and for only a three-week chart stay). Reportedly the song narrowly avoided a radio ban by the BBC as well, and might have been banned if the one BBC staffer who wanted to ban the record had not been away on holiday at the time the other staffers voted on whether to add 'Master and Servant' to their playlist.
