Depeche Mode - "Policy Of Truth" (acapella from online source)
St. Petersburg Ska-Jazz Review - "Policy Of Truth" (master from cd)
Many people assume I have a lot of Depeche Mode records...and I do. I still hit eBay a lot, however, to fill in gaps. One day I stumbled upon a ska version of Policy Of Truth on a 45. I had to buy it. I fell in love with it. Around the same time, the acapella for "Policy Of Truth" leaked online. Cue the mashup...
I have been sitting on this one for MANY months. I've been trying to think of what exactly I could do with it. I actually had planned on making this the prank on depechemode.com for April Fools Day 2012, but that was (sadly) shot down. Instead of letting it just rot on my hard drive, I decided to put it up...on April Fool's Day. :)
While there are a number of disclaimers on the site regarding the mashups not being approved by the artists included within each mix (unless otherwise noted), I feel I have to over-emphasize this fact, since Depeche Mode are clients of mine. It goes without saying (though I am saying it anyway) that this was not commissioned / paid for / approved by the band. Look at it this way. I am a fan. Other fans can do Depeche Mode mashups, so why can't I? :)
Mashup first published online: April 1st, 2012.
