Something went wrong with Depeche Mode

Something went wrong with Depeche Mode

It’s not often that bands release live errors (wrong lyrics, wrong notes played etc), actually it never happens. The only way to get to hear such errors is often via the bootleg circuit, and as it happens, there’s a bootleg out there, called “Something Went Wrong” which is a compilation of Depeche Mode‘s live mistakes, glitches, technical problems and the like, spanning from 1980 to 2010 (!).

Yes, you have people going through hundreds of bootlegs to find the errors played live and compiling them afterwards. Why not, others make Depeche Mode tribute albums or even cover a complete album, n’est-ce pas?

Although the compilation counts 139 tracks and over twelve hours of music, it’s not the complete list of errors that Depeche Mode ever made. As you may expect, the quality of tracks varies of course, but none are so terrible that you can’t make out the music or find the mistake after a couple of tries. The makers promise that there may be future additions to this compilation if/when Depeche Mode hits the road again.

To be clear, we are talking about a bootleg, so don’t ask for a link. As such this article is only posted to give you an idea of how collectible some things might get, even when things go wrong during a live show. To make you thirsty, here’s the complete setlist, but first 2 SWWs…

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 2 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.

The donations are safely powered by Paypal.
