Oh yes! Another obligatory Alex Ball video this time it is a banger (literally) covering the percussive excursions of one of the most influential albums of the early 80s (and one of the weirdest covers of the time) :thumbup:

ooh lovely. Speak & Spell was a game changer and a fascinating look into the two creative spirits of the original DM line up. It’s no wonder in hindsight that they split soon after.

Liked the video: Sounds were super on, but personally unimpressed by his song at the end. I usually like his output better.

I'm afraid he's another who I find really annoying to watch even if he has some good stuff to say.
Anyhow, I was desperate for this video to be recreating a Depeche Mode sound using an actual Speak 'n' Spell.
