As part of the label’s new From the Vaults web series on The Warner Sound channel on YouTube, the folks at Warner Bros. have dug up what they are billing as a previously unreleased, 26-minute Depeche Mode promotional documentary put together to promote the release of 1993’s Songs of Faith and Devotion.
Entitled “A Conversation with Mr. Gambaccini,” the two-part doc — which can be seen via the videos posted above — features radio DJ Paul Gambaccini interviewing DM’s Dave Gahan, Martin Gore, Andrew Fletcher and Alan Wilder about the then-new album and more.

Ah, good old record company bluster! Hasn’t this already been put out on the 86>98 promo videos DVD collection? http://www.depechemode.com/discography/home_video/11_8698plus.html
Maybe unreleased commercially, but this video made the rounds back when the album was out. God I hated this version of DM…
This is the SOFAD Electronic Press Kit (EPK). It’s on the Videos 86>98 2DVD Set.
As a hardcore DM fan that thinks SOFAD is actually their best album….i kinda agree with fxc, they were a pitiful sight back then, especially Gahan, he acted like a right prat.
I love this album, but can’t STAND to watch Dave in this state. yikes.
My God you can see, and hear, how miserable WIdler was.
