Notes

The first of two "Ultra Parties".

Barrel Of A Gun, Useless, and It's No Good from this concert have been officially released on a few singles releases, detailed below. However, all of these have overdubbed vocals and do not faithfully represent Dave's vocals from that night. Moreover, Dave misses a line during It's No Good (the second "I'm gonna take my time") and the first instance is used to fix that issue.

Note: the user "moke72" on DIME claims to have an uncirculated audience cassette master recording from this concert. I have attempted to contact him about it several times and even offered to pay shipping cost for the tape to transfer it, but received no response. If moke72 happens to be reading this and you are still willing to share your recording, please send an email to admin [at] depechemode-live [dot] com.

Nick Cave, Tim Simenon, Neil Tennant, Samantha Fox, Anton Corbijn, Gary Numan, Primal Scream, Dubstar (including Sarah Blackwood), Alan McGee, Perry Bamonte, Jon Pleased Wimmin, Underworld, Leeroy Thornhill, Aphex Twin, Jerry Sadowitz, Paul Young, Annie Nightingale, Cathy Dennis, Stephen Hague, Gallon Drunk, Elka, Jerry Sadowitz, James (band), and Kris Needs (who was DJing) were in attendance.

Sources

  • Source 1 is a good audience recording. It's cassette sourced, so it's rather muffled.
  • Source 2 is an okay audience-shot DVD. Video is fairly unsteady and the camera audio is nearly unlistenable.
