Depeche Mode

Post  misery guts on Wed Mar 15, 2017 9:13 am

Basildon's foremost rock pervs, they evolved from New Romantic beginnings in the early 80s, to become stadium-happy rock gods in the late 80s and beyond. Dave Gahan has drug issues, but he recovered, and he and Martin Gore remain the nucleus of the band, who've got a new album out soon. Here are just some of their best moments:

Everything Counts

Enjoy The Silence

In Your Room

Barrel Of A Gun

Where's The Revolution?

Not sure why it's taken me this long to do a DM thread, I've got a few of their albums, and they've done loads of great tracks clown

Depeche Mode: 101
2 hour concert/tour film about the electropop band's late 80's tour of the USA, finishing at the Pasadena Rose Bowl. The music footage is good, the backstage boredom with a crop of youths who appear to think they're born stars when they aren't, is less enthralling.

Depeche Mode - Live In Berlin
From their Delta Machine tour in November 2013, they did 12 songs, from across their 30+ year career. Personal Jesus and Enjoy The Silence were high-spots, and I'm warming to Never Let Me Down too.

Discovering: Depeche Mode
Basildon's foremost rock pervs. The exit of Vince Clarke wasn't quite the disaster it seemed to be, and they developed a compelling sound and direction through the 1990's. Health problems after that didn't help, but they kept up their sales. Solo albums passed time, and they continue to put out new material periodically, though the media have let them slip a long time back.

Video Killed The Radio Star: Depeche Mode
Rusty Egan and Robert Elms discuss memorable 80s videos made by Anton Corbijn, including Personal Jesus and Enjoy The Silence, plus later ones like Barrel Of A Gun and It's No Good. I didn't quite realise the depth of horror in Barrel of a Gun.

Their new album, Spirit, is out this week.

Depeche Mode at the BBC
A selection of performances, mainly from TOTP, and with some chat footage of Gahan, Gore, Fletcher, Wilder and Clarke. Notably, they were regular BBC visitors until 1987, then there's a gap of 10 years, followed by another gap of 8 years, and finally ending up on Later with Jools Holland.

Depeche Mode - Live at 6music Festival
From their recent show at Glasgow Barrowlands, this was a different blend of material, including the recent "Where's The Revolution?" single. Notably, they closed with Personal Jesus and Enjoy The Silence.

Spirit peaked at #5.
