Now Playing - Depeche Mode
After years of Fragile Tension between members old and new, it seems all is now at ease on the Depeche Mode front, with the emerging revelation that Vince Clarke and Martin Gore have been working together on a new techno album.
The two were founding members of the Essex based group and Gore took over lead song writing duties from Clarke after he left the band in 1981, but revealed to Billboard how the two have been working on new material for about 9-months now.
Since leaving Depeche Mode, Clarke has been involved in projects such as Yazoo, The Assembly, Erasure and a pioneer in the use of synthesizers in pop music.
After speaking with you, we are going to build the ultimate Depeche Mode related playlist on Now Playing @6Music this Friday. Think anything by the band itself, anything from Vince Clarke’s work since he left the group, collaborators, influences, influencees, and people who have covered them – Johnny Cash for example.
Let us know what you would like to see Tom Robinson play on the show by leaving a comment, joining the debate on Facebook, e-mail us or drag a track onto our Spotify playlist.
Over to you!
