    I'm halfway through the video. So far, the woman doing the narrating has pronounced Dave's surname "Ga-Han" (pronouncing the H, ugh), then mentioned the b-side cover of Route 66 of all things... Cringe.

    I hate when people do that. Like, I know his name looks like that but if you're making something for the RNRHOF, maybe put a little more effort into making sure everything is correct.

    I remember watching a YT video about Scott Weiland and people in the comments section kept trying to say that it's supposed to be pronounced "Way-lund" instead of "Why-lund." I wanted to point them in the direction of videos where Scott himself was saying "Why-lund" but I'm not a YT member. What I find really odd, though, is Jeff Ament. I've heard Jeff say "Ay-ment", but sometimes the guys in Pearl Jam will say "Uh-ment."

    Not gonna lie, that's what I thought it was pronounced until today. Even back in the 80s and 90s that's what the interviewers would say. Don't remember him ever correcting them.

    It’s pronounced “gaan” or how Americans say “gone”:

    Same kinda thing with Tori Amos. Tori herself has always said "Ay-miss" but journalists the world over have said "Ay-mose" and have never really been corrected. I've never once even considered Scott's name to be Way-lund, so I'm relieved that it really is Why-lund haha.

    That, uh, looks like the way Australians pronounce "gone".

    I always pronounced it "gain" or "gā-in"

    I remember before clicking on the original advert i thought it would be a daft price like 100 quid or something but 750? makes no sense, in these times especially. I'll wait till some kind hearted fan buys one and scans the lot.

    Bjork rhymes with 'jerk', but most people mispronounce it to rhyme with fork.

    Yeah, it's bananas. However, I saw something from Anton on social media that said there would be a cheaper, standard edition coming later.

    Anyone's SOFAD box ship out today/recently from Amazon? I didn't get my order in until a week ago; it's been updated to a Nov 24-25 delivery now :/

    I'm really anxious to see what they do for Ultra; that's when they started scaling the 12" back to just a single release (besides Barrel of a Gun) - so it'll probably either be a smaller 5LP set again, or they'll flesh it out with the the promo LP for It's No Good Club 69 mixes and/or the double 12" Only When I Lose Myself release (maybe the latter is unlikely; Shake the Disease/It's Called a Heart didn't get attached to an album set, and OWILM doesn't seem to have any real association with Ultra, either - aside from a remix of Painkiller).

    Just saying... watching the R&R HOF induction... I felt Dave Gahan took all the glory and Martin Gore was clenching his teeth? It seemed unfair to me that Martin wasn't speaking much on the acceptance. Maybe that's just me...

    Martin does that a lot, lol.

    Did anything else of note happen on it?

    He didn’t take all the glory. He’s the extroverted front man of a band with two introverts. It’s kinda always been this way. Fletch usually only talks when Dave isn’t around. And Martin when he’s on his own.

    I feel a bit sad that TR wasn’t a talking head on the Depeche Mode front, or was he? I can’t watch and haven’t heard anything

    Nope, it was Charlize Theron of all people giving the induction speech, and there were statements from Vince, (and an archival clip of Alan), Chris Martin of Coldplay, and Lauren from chvrches. Maybe more, but not Trent (or even Robert Smith sadly)

    I can’t help feeling they were a bit robbed of respect, 80s British synth pop has always got short shrift critically, and probably even more so in Britain sadly! I don’t mind the Charlize Theron thing though and it would have been kind of fun if Scarlett Johansson had done NIN as a weird match. But Coldplay?

    Had no idea there was an instrumental version of Recoil's Liquid album until a few days ago. I always preferred the instrumental Recoil albums (Hydrology/1+2) more than the albums with guest vocalists. Instrumental Liquid puts that album in a whole new light for me

    Reminds me of that Howler remix Breyer P-Orridge did for While I'm Still Here. Interesting concept.
