1985-07-13 Rockscene Festival, Guehenno, France


Another festival gig from the 1984-1985 Some Great Reward Tour. A soundboard audio recording and pro-shot video recording are available, both incomplete.

It is said on fan-sites of The Clash that a fight broke out between crew members of The Clash and crew members of Depeche Mode.

Martin Gore said in 1997: "We played with The Clash once, years ago. And when they first went on stage, Joe's drummer said: 'Il pleut, oui ou non?' ['It rains, yes or no?']."



  • Source 1 is a good soundboard recording sourced from a TV broadcast master recording. The recording declines in quality as it goes on for some reason; the audio gets sort of an 'echoey' quality and gains some distortion.
  • Source 2 is a pro-shot DVD of the same 8 tracks as the soundboard recording, but lineage is unknown.
  • Source 3 is a rework yielding the most complete, best sounding version from the soundboard recording (Source 1), the good audience recording (Source 4), and an FM broadcast for the final track.
  • Source 4 is a good audience recording, unfortunately missing the vast majority of the last track.
