Erasure – Indian Rubber Mega-Mix (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 10th September 2014

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1990

Side 1

“Indian Rubber” is a megamix of Erasure hits released in 1990 by the US based bootlega label ON-USound. The label had at least 15 12″ releases. The majority of releases have single artist megamixes. Later on the label changed it’s name to to Euro-Mixx. This megamix is quite sought after by Erasure fans.

Please remember that this is a bootleg unofficial release therefore the sound quality is not always the best. I have restored this 12″ to the best of my ability. “Indian Rubber” was also released by ON-USound as a CD single but was taken directly from a vinyl source.

Depeche Mode – Depeche (Megamix) Behind The Mix! (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 2nd July 2012

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1989

Released in 1989 this is one of the earlier ON-USound releases. There are two Depeche Mode Megamixes featured here. The mixes are mainly of Depeche Mode’s early work and tracks from “Music For The Masses”.

Depeche Mode are an English electronic music band formed in 1980 in Basildon, Essex. The group’s original line-up consisted of Dave Gahan (lead vocals, occasional songwriter since 2005), Martin Gore (keyboards, guitar, vocals, chief songwriter after 1981), Andy Fletcher (keyboards) and Vince Clarke (keyboards, chief songwriter 1980–81). Vince Clarke left the band after the release of their 1981 debut album, Speak & Spell, and was replaced by Alan Wilder (keyboards, drums, occasional songwriter) with Gore taking over songwriting. Wilder left the band in 1995; Gahan, Gore, and Fletcher have since continued as a trio.

Depeche Mode have had 48 songs in the UK Singles Chart and twelve top 10 albums in the UK charts, two of which debuted at #1. According to EMI, Depeche Mode have sold over 100 million albums and singles worldwide, making them the most successful electronic band in music history. Q magazine calls Depeche Mode “The most popular electronic band the world has ever known” and included the band in the list of the “50 Bands That Changed The World!”.

In 2010 Depeche Mode were ranked No. 98 on VH1’s list of the 100 greatest artists of all time.

The Cure – The Antidote Mega Mix (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 29th June 2012

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1991

Another nicely crafted Mega Mix from the ON-USound label. Released in 1991 this Mega Mix features The Cure. The mix includes some the biggest hits from the boys from Crawley, West Sussex.

The Cure are an English alternative rock band formed in Crawley, West Sussex in 1976. The band has experienced several line-up changes, with frontman, vocalist, guitarist and principal songwriter Robert Smith being the only constant member. The Cure first began releasing music in the late 1970s with its debut album Three Imaginary Boys (1979); this, along with several early singles, placed the band as part of the post-punk and New Wave movements that had sprung up in the wake of the punk rock revolution in the United Kingdom. During the early 1980s, the band’s increasingly dark and tormented music helped form the gothic rock genre.

After the release of Pornography (1982), the band’s future was uncertain and Smith was keen to move past the gloomy reputation his band had acquired. With the 1982 single “Let’s Go to Bed” Smith began to place a pop sensibility into the band’s music (as well as a unique stage look). The Cure’s popularity increased as the decade wore on, especially in the United States where the songs “Just Like Heaven”, “Lovesong” and “Friday I’m in Love” entered the Billboard Hot 100 chart. By the start of the 1990s, The Cure were one of the most popular alternative rock bands in the world. The band is estimated to have sold 27 million albums as of 2004. The Cure have released thirteen studio albums, 10 EPs and over thirty singles during the course of their career. Since 2010, they have been working on a fourteenth studio album.
