Depeche Mode

Profil:
English electronic music band formed March 1980 in Basildon, Essex, and named after a popular French fashion magazine. The group's original line-up consisted of Dave Gahan (lead vocals, occasional songwriter since 2005), Martin Gore (keyboards, guitar, vocals, chief songwriter after 1981), Andy Fletcher (keyboards), and Vince Clarke (keyboards, chief songwriter from 1980 until 1981). Depeche Mode released their debut record in 1981, Speak & Spell, bringing the band onto the British new wave scene. Clarke left the band after the release of the album, leaving the band as a trio to record A Broken Frame, released the following year. Gore took over lead songwriting duties and, later in 1982, Alan Wilder (keyboards, drums, occasional songwriter) officially joined the band to fill Clarke's spot, establishing a line up that would continue for the next thirteen years.

The band's last albums of the 1980s, Black Celebration and Music for the Masses, established them as a dominant force on the mainstream electronic music scene. A highlight of this era was the band's concert at the Pasadena Rose Bowl, where they drew a crowd in excess of 60,000 people. In the new decade, Depeche Mode released Violator, a mainstream success. The subsequent album, Songs of Faith and Devotion, and the supporting Devotional Tour exacerbated tensions within the band to the point where Alan Wilder quit in 1995, leading to intense media and fan speculation that the band would split. Now a trio once again, the band released Ultra in 1997, recorded at the height of Gahan's near-fatal drug abuse, Gore's alcoholism and seizures and Fletcher's depression. The release of Exciter confirmed Depeche Mode's willingness to remain together, the subsequent, and very successful, Exciter Tour being their first tour in support of an original album in eight years since the Devotional Tour, although the band had toured in 1998 to support The Singles 86–98 compilation album.

Depeche Mode have had fifty songs in the UK Singles Chart and thirteen top 10 albums in the UK charts, two of which debuted at No. 1. Depeche Mode have to this day sold over 100 million records worldwide, making them one of the most commercially successful electronic bands and one of the world's best-selling music artists in the world. Q magazine calls Depeche Mode "the most popular electronic band the world has ever known" and included the band in the list of the "50 Bands That Changed the World!". Depeche Mode also rank number 98 on VH1's "100 Greatest Artists Of All Time.

Hear, hear! Bring back the dream team. Some of the musicality has been missing since his departure.

I'm gonna throw it out there...

Would Martin be open to allowing Alan back into the fold, as a key member of the group musically / production wise, just for one album?

I'm not sure of course, but I imagine Alan would love to be back in DM, at least just for a year or so. Dave's been clean for 20 years, Martin's relaxed, Fletch is comfortable. No more stress.

It would be amazing for us fans to see what results it could bring.

The guys aren't getting any younger, let's not kid ourselves. And it would be a damn shame if the dream team didn't come together at least one more time.

We need the real Depeche Mode.

DM is one group the "Tracks" sorting section REALLY pays off for collectors.

I remember going to Nottingham's Selectadisc in the Eighties, looking through the Depeche Mode and spotting the current DM album of that time in MATT black vinyl. I didn't buy it as I already had the normal version, but wish I did as I have never seen a matt black option since and really would have liked to have at least looked at it properly.

Now I can't remember which album it was either; it was 'round the time of Music for the Masses, but I can't be sure.

Does anybody else remember or know of this? . . . or even heard of any other matt black options.

It would be good to have a category under the "release" menu for live albums and studio albums. This would help tidy things up a bit.

All these Live Here Now CDs are certainly official releases. But at the very least they should be grouped under one Master. As it stands it's a real mess.

Unfortunately most of those live recordings aren't bootlegs. They are sold at the live shows so they are in a way legit.

I have an idea to get rid of all these live recordings, bootlegs etc. from the album discography:

Add a "Canon" tickbox to the submission form. It can be added in the Format "Description" field.

Once all proper albums are marked as such, and it would only need one make the list (no need to go though 250 versions of Violator for example), the "canon" albums are displayed first.

All those live recordings, bootlegs etc. could be displayed at the end (after Compilations and before Videos), under something like "Non-Canon Albums".

Hey, it's an idea. I'm not saying it's a good one. But like everyone else, and not just Depeche Mode fans (look at Metallica's page!!!), I am sick of seeing major artists with over 100 "Albums" listed.
