This week’s mix/ playlist was put together especially for ‘Drop the Biscuit’ by Martin, an old school friend of mine, who of course later went on to be part of  the Pop group Depeche Mode. He’s also recorded a couple a brilliant Solo Albums- Counterfeit 1 & 2.

    I love this playlist so much. It is very clear that MLG has been influenced by these tunes. I can hear many Depeche-y elements for sure. All throughout, and representing all phases of Depeche’s sound. A keeper. You have a new fan in me…can’t wait to hear more playlists, though this one will be especially near and dear. Thank you. Would love to talk tunes with you….endless conversation. 🙂

  35. Frank says:

    What a charming playlist! And interesting insights into the curator’s influences; “Honey Hush” explains “Pleasure, Little Treasure”? And how interesting is “Denomination Blues”, both musically and historically? Bravo!

    • S.Lynn Evans says:

      Thank you for articulating it much better than I. I agree.
      Good music is truly timeless; if it has substance it will still sound good in twenty-fifty years, and it will be remembered if it’s meaningful to the people who discover it.
