This is important
So yesterday I was in Rzeszów, and guess what! WHITE LIES WERE THERE TOO! They were singing only for an hour (more or less) but oh, what a gig it was!

Happy Birthday Depeche Mode, with your single release ‘John The Revelator | Lilian’ released on 5|6|2006, 8 years ago.
“John the Revelator”/”Lilian" is the second double A-sided single released by Depeche Mode and are both from their 2005 album Playing The Angel. While the Depeche Mode track known as “John the Revelator” should be considered a novel composition written by Martin Gore, the song has its origins in an early 20th-century gospel/folk song “John The Revelator" famously performed by Son House,Blind Willie Johnson, and later by such acts as The Holy Modal Rounders, The Blues Brothers and John Mellencamp, with each new version adding or ignoring the original lyrics if not the original context. Similarly, the Depeche Mode track employs several elements of the namesake including the call-and-response chorus (“who’s that shouting? John the Revelator”)
Highest Chart Peakings: #1 Denmark and #2 Spain
The Remixes of the single includes some stunning versions, but also a breathless taking ‘Bare Version’ of the PTA album-track ‘Nothing’s Impossible”,
