Flashback Friday: Never Let Me Down

SP_on_sofa20 years ago at BBC studio the Smashing Pumpkins recorded 4 tracks. Disarm, Landslide (Fletwood Mac), Never Let Me Down (Depeche Mode), & Quiet. Both Landslide and Never Let Me Down were recorded in 1 or 2 takes according to D’arcy.

The title for the Depeche Mode song is Never Let Me Down Again but when the BBC recording of the song was released as a b-side to the Rocket single it was titled Never Let Me Down.

The Smashing Pumpkins would play the song on occasion live in ’94 and ’95. In 1998 at KROQ Acoustic Christmas, Billy played a solo set, and then later joined Depeche Mode on stage to sing and play guitar for Never Let Me Down Again.
