This thread contains all available news items about the remix that Martin Gore did for Ken Andrews's solo project On.

According to an old customer review on Amazon.com, Martin Gore did say something about this remix in an interview at the time, but I have found no further info, and so I'm hoping someone else has more!

Ken Andrews had covered Enjoy the Silence on the tribute album in 1998, this is what Martin Gore had said about that:

Los Angeles' Failure also contributes a standout track with the 1990 hit "Enjoy The Silence." "The Smashing Pumpkins was an especially big honor, but I really like the Failure version best," Gore says about the bare bones acoustic track that explodes with effects mid-song.

Leading more directly to the advent of On was Failure's final recording, a revelatory cover of "Enjoy The Silence" for the Depeche Mode tribute album "For The Masses". Being particularly pleased with Failure's version of the song was what led Depeche Mode songwriter to sign up to remix "Soluble Words". Gore's "sublingual remix" was issued on the "Soluble Words" CD EP, along with the album track, additional remixes, and an excellent Failure-inflected non-album track, "Your Sister Says John".

2000-04-xx - CMJ (US) - Ken Andrews Interview

http://books.google.com/books?id=GCoEAAAAMBAJ&pg=PA17



Ken Andrews likes Depeche Mode. A lot. That's no big surprise until you realize that the singer and guitarist was a driving force of the now-defunct alt-rock underdogs Failure, a band known more for ingenious guitar rock than keyboard-driven electro-pop.
(...)
Given his enthusiasm for electronic pop, it's no surprise that one of Andrew's heroes - Depeche Mode - recently remixed On's Gary Numan-esque "Soluble Words".
"To me it's kind of like a complete fantasy," Andrew confides, still in awe. "When I heard it I was just like, "Whoa, that's so cool.""

Shifting Skin
By Rob Bolton

Following the demise of his former band Failure, singer/writer Ken Andrews put some thought into developing a new musical vision. Abandoning the straight-ahead alt-rock formula, his new project, On, incorporates more electronics like synths and sampled rhythms. Catchy melodies on tracks like "C'mon Collapse," "Building" and "If I Get To Feel You" give the moody tracks some life and make Shifting Skin a solid release. He enlists some help from members of Blinker the Star, Jeff Turzo of God Lives Underwater and even Brad Laner, from long-silent noise-mongers Medicine. This is an album that traverses many fields, showing its roots in both guitar rock and even dark synth pop. The nod his former band Failure made to Depeche Mode by recording "Enjoy The Silence" was recently returned in a spooky Martin Gore remix of On's "Soluble Words." Although the whole sonic package is not unique, Andrews' songwriting skills set Shifting Skin apart from the rest.
