The first of two "Ultra Parties".

The concert was professionally filmed by Mute Records for promotional purposes. Previously, a portion of the performance featuring the song It's No Good and some behind-the-scenes footage with a couple of fans was made available on Depeche Mode's official website.

The audio recordings of Barrel Of A Gun, Useless, and It's No Good from this concert have been officially released on various singles releases, detailed below. However, all of these have overdubbed vocals and do not faithfully represent Dave's vocals from the night. Moreover, Dave misses a line during It's No Good ("I'm gonna take my time"), and the first occurrence of the line is used to correct this on the official release.

Note: the user "moke72" on DIME claims to have an uncirculated audience cassette master recording from this concert. I have attempted to contact him about it several times and even offered to pay shipping cost for the tape to transfer it, but received no response. If moke72 happens to be reading this and you are still willing to share your recording, please send an email to admin [at] dmlive [dot] wiki.

Nick Cave, Tim Simenon, Neil Tennant, Samantha Fox, Anton Corbijn, Gary Numan, Primal Scream, Dubstar (including Sarah Blackwood), Alan McGee, Perry Bamonte, Jon Pleased Wimmin, Underworld, Leeroy Thornhill, Aphex Twin, Jerry Sadowitz, Paul Young, Annie Nightingale, Cathy Dennis, Stephen Hague, Gallon Drunk, Elka, Jerry Sadowitz, James (band), and Kris Needs (who was DJing) were in attendance.

  • Source 1 is a decent audience recording. It's cassette sourced, so it's rather muffled.
  • Source 2 is an okay audience-shot DVD with terrible audio quality, but the video is alright, although somewhat shaky.
