Depeche Mode

It takes an unbelievable number of exceptionally dedicated and professional individuals working behind the scenes to make every show happen. The UK live music industry alone supports over 200,000 jobs and thousands of different companies and business types, and this entire ecosystem needs urgent support. #LetTheMusicPlay (📸 Abi Raymaker)

GOING BACKWARDS - PART IV - DANIEL CASSUS

So now I'm already one day behind my original plan of following the events of July 2018. But who cares? Sunday, the 22nd had a lot more action in front of the cameras. Another groundhog day starting with more scenes at home at 10am. Then we were off for the scenes in the bar, at the karaoke, the surprise visit to the fans camped outside the venue and we managed to do it all before it was dark. [ 731 more words ]

GOING BACKWARDS - PART III - DANIEL CASSUS

So I'm running a little late with my 2nd anniversary retrospective. Guess what? Most of that Saturday, July 21st, was about me running up and down all over town. All of the outdoor running scenes were filmed that day. But first things first. Our schedule began at 10am with the crew coming to my place for the interview part. As I was soon to learn, filming schedules end up never being followed as originally planned, but somehow everything seems to work out right in the end. [ 501 more words ]

GOING BACKWARDS - PART II - DANIEL CASSUS

So let's fast forward a little. On April 13th, 2018, I got another late night email with the subject "Depeche Mode Film Opportunity". It was an invitation to take part in a project that would focus on the fans. Despite the vague description of the whole thing, I accepted immediately. I felt honored to have been selected, but I didn't know much about what were they aiming for. [ 492 more words ]

The Violator 12" Singles boxset is here and so is the inevitable review on Almost Predictable. Almost

The artwork, the extras and, crucially, the answer to the question "Which is heavier - the original sealed L12BONG20 or the reissued version." This is the sort of thing that Home Admin David spends far too much time worrying about

So I got a surprise one day earlier.

Highlights:
-12" artwork with the four "girl" pictures inside the PJ L12
-4 round-shaped unused stickers
-gatefold L12 for Policy of Truth
-sealed L12 WIME with the famous "violate here" tear mark (don't "violate" on the line on the top! Carefully open with scissor (or a box cutter if you're a pro) on the side where the record comes out. That way you don't have to always remove the sleeve from the plastic)
-P12Bong20!!!

WARM LEATHERETTE MELTS - DANIEL CASSUS

As a sort of quick fix to the postponement of the Record Store Day this year, three events were created for later instead. On June 20th, the "Love Record Store" event was held in the UK only, as far as I know. I have no idea why it was UK-only, but probably because of limited capacity of production chains at the moment.

The shout of the boys in the factory

Today is a special day in the history of Depeche Mode.

40 years ago today, Dave Gahan first appeared with Martin Gore, Andy Fletcher and Vince Clarke when Composition Of Sound played a gig at Nicholas Comprehensive School in Basildon. The stage they played may not be as glamorous as the likes of the Rose Bowl, but it’s as important a venue as any other the band have played

EVERYDAY IS LIKE SUNDAY - DANIEL CASSUS

I know I've been absent from here and for the most contradictory of reasons: the partial lockdown which I turned into my own self quarantine. I've just reduced my trips outside to the essential. But like every sane and insane person in the world, this is obviously affecting us on a psychological level. Even being at home longer made me less productive. [ 277 more words ]

Don't worry. I won't hurt you. I just want you to have some fun. Here's a playlist for your lockdown quarantine.
