198X on eBay

Here are two nicely collectible pieces on eBay right now. A Front 242 flag used on stage during the Official Version tour and a Depeche Mode Music for the Masses T-Shirt (I own that shirt and wore it to death). I don’t have a wall for the flag and I won’t wear white and bright orange so unless I win the lottery and build a new wave/EBM museum collecting the photos of this stuff will be enough for today. Still… I almost clicked bid on both! Official Version and Music for the Masses are both in my top 10 albums of all time.

“Rare and hard to find backdrop / flag used on stage during the Official Version tour 1987. Size 138 x 94 cm (55″ x 37,5″ inches) These flags was sold through Front 242’s fanclub after the tour. Only a few copies made. Comes in a black Official Version plastic sleeve. (The live pictures are taken from the Gothenburg / Sweden concert in 1987.)”
