Dave Gahan later said in the August 27 '86 issue of Smash Hits magazine:

“I got really drunk at the last gig we did and didn’t get back to the hotel until four in the morning,” he explains. “There I was lying on the bed and suddenly I wanted to go pee. I went into the bathroom and fell asleep on the loo. After about an hour I tried to stand up but I slipped on a towel and went flying through the shower – flat out on my backside, I was. I cried out for Jo [his wife] who got me back to the bed. I sneaked a look down at my ankle and nearly died when I saw the size of it. It was like an elephant’s foot. Huge. It still hurts me now...”

  • Source 1 is a decent audience recording. Pretty muffled and a little hissy, but otherwise listenable. Quiet crowd around the taper. I've seen this recording referred to as an FM broadcast before, but it is definitely not one. Rather incomplete; find further details on the recording's page.
