Martin L. Gore - "Counterfeit e.p" (1989)
Intrepid hosts Brian & Sarah are back for 2021's first "normal" episode! But can a podcast focused on Depeche Mode's foremost songwriter truly be considered "normal?" After all, Mr. M.L. Gore is known across the world for his unusual songs that combine all the best features of alternative music with kernels of pure pop music magic.
But of course, none of the songs on "Counterfeit e.p" are penned by Martin, so how will they go over with our Depeche Mode-loving hosts? Will a song originally by The Durutti Column prove to be as charming as anything from "Construction Time Again?" Will the cover of Joe Crow's "Compulsion" power-up the PRP crew enough for them to cross over the street or will they simply huddle in a dark corner, wishing they were listening to "A Broken Frame?" What's the connection between Chairman Mao and "In a Manner of Speaking?" And does this 1989 solo project have the same level of sonic perfection that we expect from the mighty Mode? All of these questions and more are answered in this, the 124th episode of the Permanent Record Podcast!
