In the past decade Sweden’s most successful synthpop export product S.P.O.C.K released an album every second year. The last S.P.O.C.K album was released in 2001, since then it has been very silent around the band. The band still keeps on playing live, and since they’ve been invited to the biggest synth festival in North America, Kinitek which took place between May 17 til May 20, they decided to assemble a compilation to a market where the material has been hard to acquire since most of the S.P.O.C.K catalogue has been long deleted.
“Another Piece of the Action: Best of the SubSpace Years” features tracks taken from the 3 albums released on their own record label SubSpace Communications, and include hard-to-find songs and versions, such as singles previously not digitally released, remastered stuff and the best album tracks. The comp has a total running time of 80 minutes and will be available as digital download as well as a limited edition relief digipak CD and transparent double vinyl LP. The album will be released on the 5th of June. You can pre-order the CD at Storming The Base.

HIGH QUALITY 1982 PERFORMANCE (ROLAND JUPITER 8, MOOG)
“See You” is the fourth UK single by Depeche Mode and the first written by Martin Gore. The single was released on 29 January 1982 and was later included on the band’s second album A Broken Frame. The single launched a small world tour, with extra band member Alan Wilder, although he did not contribute to the song or the album. There are two versions of “See You” — the single version, and an extended version with a longer intro. This became the album version.
The B-side to “See You” is “Now, This Is Fun”. The extended version has a bigger bridge in the middle and a longer ending, with David Gahan sometimes shouting “This is funny!” instead of “This is real fun!”.
The video for “See You” was directed by Julien Temple. It was also the first video with Alan Wilder. He can be seen briefly playing the keyboards, and he also appears in several photo booth strips. At the beginning of the video there is a speakerphone, much like the one on the cover of Music for the Masses, released five years later. The band did not like the video, and it did not show up on the 1985 video compilation Some Great Videos, which included the band’s videos up to 1985 except the A Broken Frame singles and “Get the Balance Right”.
