In a manner of speaking - Martin L. Gore

After having worked in Depeche Mode for almost a decade, the group went on hiatus and Martin L. Gore used his free time to record the 'Counterfeit e.p.': a disc with six covers of old songs. Among them was 'In a manner of speaking', originally performed by Tuxedomoon, a new wave group from San Francisco.

I'd bought the e.p. soon after it was released, then came across this promotional 7" single a year later. Since no songs from the e.p. were released as a single, I was very happy to get my hands on this promotional disc: a collector's item.

My collection: 7" single no. 1481
Found: Breda, July 3, 1991
Cost: 2 guilders
Tracks: 'In a manner of speaking' / 'In a manner of speaking'
Download: Album 'Counterfeit e.p.', including this track (password: stanley01 )
