Loveland: That Neplusultra 12"

Have you ever wished that Depeche Mode would travel back to 1987, record a few tracks, and release them on a 12"? If so, you're in luck. Straight from New Jersey, here is Depeche Mode version 1.1, who released this 12" in 1989 and then disappeared. The song "When You Dress Up" was remixed on one of the Art of Mix DJ compilations, but otherwise these guys are pretty much unknown.
The credits on the cover were requested a little while back. Here they are:
Recorded at Reel Platinum Studios, NJ. Produced by LOVELAND, J Everett and R. Litterio. Engineered by Bob Aliecca. Graphics and logo by J Everett. Additional remix concepts by T. Wrigley, Mastered and pressed at Trutone Studios, NJ. Vocals, guitar, sampler: J VanDuyne. Vocals, synthesizers: R Litterio. Additional synths: D. Barrack. Management: Crevice Productions, 220 Mill St, Belleville, NJ 07109. 210-751-2974.

OMG, you have to be kidding me!!!

You are a Godsend!

Do you know how huge this song (Dress Up) was in Louisiana?? It was HUGE in the late 80's, 90's and even known today.

A good friend of mine did the remix on the Art of Mix compilation. I have been looking for this record -or just an MP3 of it and here it is!

Can you do me a huge favor and type out the credits on the right side? The text is too small to make out. My email is

Much Respect for sharing this with me...I really do appreciate it.

"Big in Louisiana" doesn't quite have the same ring as "Big in Japan", but it's still cool. I added the credits.

Yes I remember this from south louisiana and southeast texas in the clubs back in the early nineties. 6400, starz, and phaz-2. can't figure out how you determined this was depeche mode members though, what am i missing here - anyway just love this song when you dress up! killer stuff!
