Camouflage – The Great Commandment (US Promo 12″)

A small story attached to this, whilst at College someone gave me a tape that had a load of new bands on I’d never heard of before (Skinny Puppy, Front 242 etc..) and there was also this track. I managed to lose the box with the tracklist on and for quite a while someone who heard it said it was a long lost Depeche Mode track from their early stuff (Broken Frame era) I believed them and eventually, after about 6 months, found the box and identified the track by a band called as a German synth quartet, Camouflage.

Depeche Mode – copyists ? Certainly the 7″ sounds like it was recorded in 1983/4.

So thanks Mike for this Promo with some more mixes by Justin Strauss released in 1988 and sounding like Depeche Mode from , er, 1988! Much improved with slight Acid House touches and borrowing the bassline of “Strangelove.”

The “Acid Commandment” is my fave from the remixes, quite a deep acid house track which even use the “Acccieeed” sample! Very squelchy!
