Depeche Mode are an English alternative band, founded in 1980, originally from the town of Basildon, Essex, United Kingdom. They are one of the most enduring and successful bands to have emerged during the 80s, and particularly from the new wave/new romantic era. The band name is derived from a French fashion magazine, Dépêche mode, which means “fashion dispatch.”

The band have been highly influential in the electronic dance music scene, especially synthpop, techno and trance, in part due to their innovative work, recording techniques and use of sampling. Their most successful album is arguably 1990’s Violator, which reached the #2 position in the UK, #7 in the US, and sold over 8 million copies worldwide. The band has released a long series of high-charting singles over their three-decades long career. Enjoy The Silence is their most recognized song and is one of the most covered songs in history.

The original line-up was Dave Gahan, Martin L. Gore, Andy Fletcher and Vince Clarke. In December 1981, Clarke left the band and later went on to form Yazoo, The Assembly and Erasure. Alan Wilder joined the group initially in January 1982 as a live keyboardist but became an official member in December 1982. He left mid-1995 to fully concentrate on his Recoil project and the band continued as a trio. In 2010 Wilder re-joined Depeche Mode on stage after 16 years, for a performance of Somebody during a show at London’s Royal Albert Hall in aid of the Teenage Cancer Trust.

Depeche Mode’s origins date back to 1977, when Vince Clarke and Andrew Fletcher formed a band called No Romance in China, with Clarke on vocals and guitar and Fletcher on bass. In March 1980, Clarke, Gore and Fletcher formed a band called Composition of Sound, with Clarke on vocals/guitar, Gore on keyboards and Fletcher on bass. Soon after the formation of Composition of Sound, Clarke and Fletcher switched to synthesizers. Dave Gahan joined the band in 1980 after Clarke heard him perform at a local scout hut jam session, singing to a rendition of David Bowie’s ”Heroes”, and Depeche Mode were born.

While playing a live gig at the Bridge House in Canning Town, the band were approached by Daniel Miller, the founder of Mute Records, who proposed them a verbal contract. The result was their first single Dreaming Of Me, recorded in December 1980 and released in February 1981, reaching number 57 in the UK charts and followed soon by a real contract with Mute.

As of 2006, it was estimated that Depeche Mode had sold over 100 million records (60 million albums / 40 million singles) worldwide and have had 48 songs in the UK singles chart. They are the best selling band to have never had a UK number 1 single. According to Q Magazine, Depeche Mode is “the most popular electronic band the world has ever known.”

In the middle of the weave and weft of throbbing synthesisers and galloping drum loops on Secret to the End, there is a 16-bar drop that splits the sound into its stereo components, with a fat electro hook coming from the left side, and a chugging, electric guitar emerging from the right. That, in a sonic nutshell, is the Delta Machine, Depeche Mode’s familiar mix of synthetic (machine made) sound with bluesy rock (referring back to roots in the Mississippi Delta).

After 33 years and 13 albums, the pioneering Basildon electro trio are absolute masters of this sci-fi synth rock blend. The swells and shudders may be closer at times to techno but this is not dance music, unless you favour fist pumping and robot boxing. There is little swing or groove to a rhythm section where minimalist drum samples click and hammer with a relentless, quantised pulse. Principle writer Martin Gore has an interesting approach to minor key melodies, wandering into almost jazzy territory of odd modulations, but he’s always ready with a highly charged singalong burst when it is required. Depeche are adept at delivering the kind of chunky choruses and macho bluster of stadium anthems.

Last year, Gore collaborated with former band mate Vince Clarke on an electronic instrumental album, Ssss, under the name VCMG. It was full of interesting sounds but lacked the human focus you find in Depeche, where the ear-catching noises are perfectly matched by the melodramatic swagger of rock attitude. On My Little Universe, Depeche concoct the kind of offbeat wonky minimalism you might expect from an electro experimentalist like Four Tet but actually marry it to a tune you can hum.

It is Gore’s lyrics that usually spoil things, for me. He tends to tackle the same themes (desire, dysfunction, sin and redemption) with obvious imagery, peppered with the teenage Goth staples of angels and devils, and the poetic phrasing of an office clerk. Lines like “I’m making progress in a non-specific way”, would be hard for any singer to lend emotion or nuance to, and only encourage Gahan’s most bombastic tendencies. Amid the subsonic bass rumbles, gritty noise distortion, sawing strings and choral harmonies of Welcome to My World, when Gahan groans “I’ll penetrate your soul, I’ll bleed into your dreams”, it makes me want to get a cloth and wipe up.

Yet these are quibbles. When they formed in 1980, electronica was just beginning to provide an alternate musical palette to the bass, drums and guitar of rock. In 2013, if rock is going to survive, it surely has to encompass the bleeps and beats of electro veterans who sound like the future is still catching up with them.

 

Martin Gore o albumie: „Tworzenie tego albumu było trudne, ponieważ chciałem osiągnąć na nim możliwie najbardziej nowoczesne brzmienie. Pragnę, aby ludzie słuchając tego albumu odnajdywali wewnętrzny spokój. Jest w nim coś magicznego.” Dave Gahan dodaje: “Praca nad tym krążkiem całkowicie zmieniła nasze podejście do sposobu tworzenia. Gdy dochodzimy do punktu, w którym nasza muzyka zaczyna brzmieć zbyt normalnie, mieszamy wszystko, aż otrzymujemy typowe brzmienie Depeche Mode. W przypadku Delta Machine było tak samo i nie mogę się doczekać kiedy nasi fani usłyszą efekt końcowy.”

In a time of sociopolitical upheaval, Depeche Mode emerged with Spirit. Dark, brooding, and painfully relevant upon its release, the collection is one of their most intense and aggressive statements, isolating the frustration, anger, tension, and dread coursing across the globe in the wake of the 2016 U.S. presidential election and Brexit. With little subtlety, Depeche Mode take aim and leave few survivors. Producer James Ford (Simian Mobile Disco, Arctic Monkeys, Florence + the Machine) revives the trio after their two prior lackluster efforts and turns Spirit into a highlight of their late era, the strongest effort since 2005's Playing the Angel. From a fiery pulpit, Dave Gahan hurls line after line chastising the masses, wondering how the world got into such a bind. He points the finger at "misinformation," "misguided leaders," "apathetic hesitation," and "uneducated readers" on "The Worst Crime," taking his own share of responsibility by admitting "we are all charged with treason." On "Going Backwards," he fears a regression "to a caveman mentality." When Martin Gore joins him, they come to a dire conclusion: "We feel nothing inside/Because there's nothing inside." If the perpetually gloomy pair think affairs are this bad, perhaps there really is no hope (a decision Gore flirts with on "Fail" when he laments, "Our conscience is bankrupt/Oh, we're fucked"). Despite such desperation, the band doesn't allow for much time to be paralyzed by fear and complacency. Like parents telling their children they're "so disappointed" in them in the hopes of sparking a little reverse-psychology motivation, Spirit is Depeche Mode's challenge for us to prove them wrong. The swaggering "Where's the Revolution" is a call to arms that could double as effective propaganda for resistance recruitment, while the hammering "So Much Love" takes a defiant stand in the face of hate, wielding love as a weapon to fight the good fight. Meanwhile, on the pure and vulnerable "Eternal," Gore -- restraining his late-era vibrato -- promises to love and protect a loved one in uncertain times. However, when love is not enough, there's the visceral "Scum," a savage throbber that swells with ominous synths as Gahan asks, "Hey scum, what are you gonna do when karma comes?" before goading said miscreant to "pull the trigger." On Spirit, Gahan once again flexes his songwriting muscles, which have only gotten stronger after his work with Soulsavers. The sexy "You Move," written with Gore, is a club-ready standout that pulses from the darkest corners found on Ultra and Gahan's Hourglass, while the carnal "Poison Heart" is another Soulsavers-esque affair, as sleazy and spiritual as he gets. Robust and fearless, Spirit may end up being one of the earliest and best salvos of its political era. Despite dour lyrics to the contrary, Depeche Mode haven't given up on humanity. Spirit exhumes the remains of our better nature and demands its resurrection. ---Neil Z. Yeung, AllMusic Review

 

 

Depeche Mode – jeden z najważniejszych i najbardziej innowacyjnych zespołów w historii muzyki – wydaje nową, 14. w karierze studyjną płytę „Spirit". Jest to efekt współpracy z producentem Jamesem Fordem z Simian Mobile Disco (odpowiedzialnym za płyty m.in. Foals, Florence & The Machine, Arctic Monkeys) i pierwsza nowa muzyka zespołu od czasu świetnie przyjętej płyty „Delta Machine" (2013), która zadebiutowała na 1. miejscu oficjalnych zestawień sprzedaży płyt w 12 krajach, także w Polsce.

Album zbiera znakomite noty od wszystkich, którzy mieli okazję się z nim zapoznać – Magazyn Q uznał go za „jeden z najmocniej naładowanych energią albumów Depeche Mode od lat”.

Promuje go singiel „Where’s The Revolution", udostępniony we fragmencie na konferencji prasowej zespołu w Mediolanie jesienią 2016, gdzie zespół poinformował o zakończeniu pracy nad płytą i ogłosił europejską część trasy koncertowej. Potężnie brzmiący i wyjątkowo aktualny pod względem tekstowym utwór odznacza się pulsującym rytmem i groźną energią, którą podkreśla wokal Dave'a Gahana śpiewającego „Where's the Revolution?" „Come on people you're letting me down". Okładka i wszystkie elementy graficzne do 'Spirit' są dziełem stałego współpracownika kreatywnego zespołu - a także uznanego filmowca - Antona Corbijna. ---empik.com

Originally a product of Britain's new romantic movement, Depeche Mode went on to become the quintessential electro-pop band of the 1980s. One of the first acts to establish a musical identity based completely around the use of synthesizers, they began their existence as a bouncy dance-pop outfit but gradually developed a darker, more dramatic sound that ultimately positioned them as one of the most successful alternative bands of their era.

The roots of Depeche Mode date to 1976, when Basildon, England-based keyboardists Vince Clarke and Andrew Fletcher first teamed to form the group No Romance in China. The band proved short-lived, and by 1979 Clarke had formed French Look, another duo featuring guitarist/keyboardist Martin Gore; Fletcher soon signed on, and the group rechristened itself Composition of Sound. Initially, Clarke handled vocal chores, but in 1980 singer David Gahan was brought in to complete the lineup. After one final name change to Depeche Mode, the quartet members jettisoned all instruments excluding their synthesizers, honing a slick, techno-based sound to showcase Clarke's catchy melodies.

After building a following on the London club scene, Depeche Mode debuted in 1980 with "Photographic," a track included on the Some Bizzare Album label compilation. After signing to Mute Records, they issued "Dreaming of Me" in early 1981; while neither the single nor its follow-up, "New Life," caused much of a stir, their third effort, "Just Can't Get Enough," became a Top Ten U.K. hit, and their 1981 debut LP, Speak and Spell, was also a success. Just as Depeche Mode appeared poised for a major commercial breakthrough, however, principal songwriter Clarke abruptly exited to form Yazoo with singer Alison Moyet, leaving the group's future in grave doubt.

As Gore grabbed the band's songwriting reins, the remaining trio recruited keyboardist Alan Wilder to fill the technological void created by Clarke's departure. While 1982's A Broken Frame deviated only slightly from Depeche Mode's earlier work, Gore's ominous songs grew more assured and sophisticated by the time of 1983's Construction Time Again. Some Great Reward, issued the following year, was their artistic and commercial breakthrough, as Gore's dark, kinky preoccupations with spiritual doubt ("Blasphemous Rumours") and psychosexual manipulation ("Master and Servant") came to the fore; the egalitarian single "People Are People" was a major hit on both sides of the Atlantic and typified the music's turn toward more industrial textures.

Released in 1986, the atmospheric Black Celebration continued the trend toward grim melancholy and further established the group as a major commercial force. After the superb single "Strangelove," Depeche Mode issued 1987's Music for the Masses; a subsequent sold-out tour yielded the 1989 double live set 101 as well as a concert film directed by the legendary D.A. Pennebaker. Still, despite an enormous fan base, the group was considered very much an underground cult phenomenon prior to the release of 1990's Violator, a Top Ten smash that spawned the hits "Enjoy the Silence," "Policy of Truth," and "Personal Jesus."

With the alternative music boom of the early '90s, Depeche Mode emerged as one of the world's most successful acts, and their 1993 LP Songs of Faith and Devotion entered the charts in the number one slot. However, at the peak of its success, the group began to unravel; first Wilder exited in 1995, and then Gahan was the subject of a failed suicide attempt. (He later entered a drug rehabilitation clinic to battle an addiction to heroin.) After a four-year layoff, Depeche Mode continued onward as a trio and released 1997's Ultra, which featured the hits "Barrel of a Gun" and "It's No Good." A year later, the band embarked on a tour in support of its newly released hits album, The Singles 86>98. Depeche Mode played 64 shows in 18 countries for over one million fans. Each member took some considerable time off after the tour's completion, and Depeche Mode would not regroup for another three years.

Exciter, the band's follow-up to Ultra, was released in 2001, with the singles "Dream On" and "I Feel Loved" finding moderate success on international radio outlets. Two years later, Gahan issued his debut solo album, the dark and sultry Paper Monsters. Gore also followed suit by issuing the all-covers Counterfeit², a full-length sequel to his similarly themed 1989 EP. Each member supported his work with respective tours of the U.S. and Europe; however, the bandmembers soon resumed working together, and Playing the Angel, their 11th studio album, became a Top Ten hit upon its release in October 2005. Produced by Ben Hillier (Doves, Blur, U2, Elbow) and studded with singles like "Precious" and "John (The Revelator)," it topped the album charts in 18 countries and went multi-platinum and/or gold in 20 countries. Depeche Mode went on to play for more than two and a half million fans worldwide, and the DVD release Touring the Angel: Live in Milan (2006) captured one of the band's greatest shows. Sounds of the Universe, also made with the assistance of Hillier, arrived in early 2009. ---Jason Ankeny, allmusic.com

NOTES:

Incomplete radiobroadcast of the gig at St. Jacobs Sporthalle, Basel, November 30th, 1984. The speed is wrong, the intro is missing, but this is probably the best sounding version of that radiobrodcasted gig (the Westwood One pre-FM has fake crowd noises, "Badlands" is worse sounding). The 2CDs is not taken from the 2LPs, and both have extra sound parts.

Depeche Mode are an English alternative band, founded in 1980, originally from the town of Basildon, Essex, United Kingdom. They are one of the most enduring and successful bands to have emerged during the 80s, and particularly from the new wave/new romantic era. The band name is derived from a French fashion magazine, Dépêche mode, which means “fashion dispatch.”

The band have been highly influential in the electronic dance music scene, especially synthpop, techno and trance, in part due to their innovative work, recording techniques and use of sampling. Their most successful album is arguably 1990’s Violator, which reached the #2 position in the UK, #7 in the US, and sold over 8 million copies worldwide. The band has released a long series of high-charting singles over their three-decades long career. Enjoy The Silence is their most recognized song and is one of the most covered songs in history.

The original line-up was Dave Gahan, Martin L. Gore, Andy Fletcher and Vince Clarke. In December 1981, Clarke left the band and later went on to form Yazoo, The Assembly and Erasure. Alan Wilder joined the group initially in January 1982 as a live keyboardist but became an official member in December 1982. He left mid-1995 to fully concentrate on his Recoil project and the band continued as a trio. In 2010 Wilder re-joined Depeche Mode on stage after 16 years, for a performance of Somebody during a show at London’s Royal Albert Hall in aid of the Teenage Cancer Trust.

Depeche Mode’s origins date back to 1977, when Vince Clarke and Andrew Fletcher formed a band called No Romance in China, with Clarke on vocals and guitar and Fletcher on bass. In March 1980, Clarke, Gore and Fletcher formed a band called Composition of Sound, with Clarke on vocals/guitar, Gore on keyboards and Fletcher on bass. Soon after the formation of Composition of Sound, Clarke and Fletcher switched to synthesizers. Dave Gahan joined the band in 1980 after Clarke heard him perform at a local scout hut jam session, singing to a rendition of David Bowie’s ”Heroes”, and Depeche Mode were born.

While playing a live gig at the Bridge House in Canning Town, the band were approached by Daniel Miller, the founder of Mute Records, who proposed them a verbal contract. The result was their first single Dreaming Of Me, recorded in December 1980 and released in February 1981, reaching number 57 in the UK charts and followed soon by a real contract with Mute.

As of 2006, it was estimated that Depeche Mode had sold over 100 million records (60 million albums / 40 million singles) worldwide and have had 48 songs in the UK singles chart. They are the best selling band to have never had a UK number 1 single. According to Q Magazine, Depeche Mode is “the most popular electronic band the world has ever known.” ---last.fm

2005's Playing the Angel proved to be one of Depeche Mode's strongest albums -- the combination of Ben Hillier's production, the emergence of David Gahan as a songwriter following his initial solo effort and a clutch of striking songs that openly embraced arena-level bombast following the much more subtle Exciter resulted in wide praise and a well-received tour. As a result -- especially given the return of Hillier, the first producer to work on two Depeche albums in a row since Flood's heyday with Violator and Songs of Faith and Devotion -- Sounds of the Universe was initially suspected of being Playing the Angel redux, something the swaggering lead single "Wrong" didn't undercut at all. After all these years, though, Depeche can still pull out surprises, and what's quite astonishing about Sounds is how they've returned to the equipment and textures of their early-'80s work in particular while reworking it to match both Gahan and Martin Gore's current lyrical and songwriting techniques. On balance, Sounds is one of Depeche's lower-key albums, but not without explosive or dramatic moments by any means, though. "Come Back," one of Gahan's three songwriting contributions, captures a sudden sense of vast space right from its start, the deep-chugging percussion and reverberation perfectly contrasting the soft chimes on the verses, while "Peace," with an opening bassline straight out of the days of the band's pop-industrial phase, and a stellar vocal turn from Gahan, is an absolute high point. But "In Chains," the slow-building start to the disc, sets the tone best for Sounds as a whole, with a hushed keyboard introduction, Gahan's swoon-worthy vocals (showcasing some of his best falsetto work yet), Gore's compressed funk guitar blasts and, above all else, the sense of older styles and sounds -- classic drum machines, early synthesizers, a rumbling bass undercarriage -- serving new purposes. More overt nods to earlier days appear with songs such as "Fragile Tension" and "In Sympathy," both featuring keyboards and beats sounding beamed in from A Broken Frame days but also with beautiful vocals that the younger Gahan could never have so easily done and guitar textures that the younger Gore had yet to fully embrace. "Perfect," meanwhile, almost reaches back to Speak & Spell thanks to an opening keyboard line that immediately calls the song "Puppets" to mind, but again it's more of a launching point for the current band's sound rather than a simple exercise in retrospection. Gore's sole lead vocal appears towards the end of the album on the enjoyable if understated "Jezebel," but his uncanny knack for harmonizing with Gahan throughout remains intact, with stand-out performances including the understated clatter and chime of "Little Soul" and his bravura turn toward the end of "Wrong." On the whole, Sounds of the Universe is a grower, relying on a few listens to fully take effect, but when it does, it shows Depeche Mode are still able to combine pop-hook accessibility and their own take on "roots" music for an electronic age with sonic experimentation and recombination -- not bad for a band with almost three decades under its collective belt. --Ned Raggett, AllMusic Review

 

 

Dźwięki wszechświata" autorstwa Depechów to zestaw 13 wspaniałych, muzycznych historii, które dają się pokochać od pierwszego przesłuchania. Depeche Mode powróciło do elektronicznych korzeni lat 80., jak zostało to zapowiedziane w przedpremierowych wywiadach. Zrobili to w mistrzowski sposób, nie robiąc z "powrotu" odgrzewanego kotleta, lecz coś świeżego, stanowiącego nowy krok w rozwoju szeroko pojmowanego nurtu muzycznego reprezentowanego przez Depeche. Pomocne tu okazały się najróżniejsze syntezatory, automatyczne perkusje i inny tego typu sprzęt, jak również eksperymentalne zabiegi w studiu, co można zobaczyć np. na filmach dostępnych w serwisie YouTube.

Muzyka, jak na poprzedniej płycie - "Playing the Angel" - to kosmiczna podróż w najdalsze zakątki wszechświata, o jej ziemskim pochodzeniu przypominają niekiedy wstawki gitarowe oraz niesamowite głosy Dave'a Gahana i Martina Gorea - ten ostatni zaśpiewał w całości tylko kawałek pt. "Jezebel", w innych towarzyszy Dave'owi jako chórek. Natomiast Gahan z każdą płytą prezentuje nam coraz większe możliwości wokalne. Zachwyca, przywołuje najbardziej intymne uczucia, hipnotyzuje. Z ciekawostek: do wzmocnienia wyrazu nagrywanych wokali, artyści wykorzystali w niektórych piosenkach opróżnione butelki.

Oprócz dźwięków rodem z kosmosu, bezkonkurencyjnego wokalu, trzecią częścią sukcesu Depeche Mode są głębokie, liryczne teksty. Autorem większości z nich jest Martin Gore, wspomagany przez Dave'a Gahana ("Hole To Feed", "Come Back", "Miles Away / The Truth Is"), który zaczął pisać teksty od "Playing the Angel".

Będąc wielkim fanem dokonań grupy z Basildon, trudno mi wskazać lepsze lub gorsze fragmenty płyty. Na pewno dobrym wyborem na singla był utwór "Wrong", który jest chwytliwą kompozycją i mocnym akcentem "Sounds of the Universe". Na stronie B singla znalazła się kompozycja pt. "Oh well", do której tekst został napisany przez Gahana i Gorea, co jest novum w historii Depeche. ---Śledziu, rockmetal.pl

Synthesizer [Synthetics], Voices – Depeche Mode 

 

Though probably nobody fully appreciated it at the time -- perhaps least of all the band! -- Depeche Mode's debut is at once both a conservative, functional pop record and a groundbreaking release. While various synth pioneers had come before -- Gary Numan, early Human League, late-'70s Euro-disco, and above all Kraftwerk all had clear influence on Speak & Spell -- Depeche became the undisputed founder of straight-up synth pop with the album's 11 songs, light, hooky, and danceable numbers about love, life, and clubs. For all the claims about "dated" '80s sounds from rock purists, it should be noted that the basic guitar/bass/drums lineup of rock is almost 25 years older than the catchy keyboard lines and electronic drums making the music here. That such a sound would eventually become ubiquitous during the Reagan years, spawning lots of crud along the way, means the band should no more be held to blame for that than Motown and the Beatles for inspiring lots of bad stuff in the '60s. Credit for the album's success has to go to main songwriter Vince Clarke, who would extend and arguably perfect the synth pop formula with Yazoo and Erasure; the classic early singles "New Life," "Dreaming of Me," and "Just Can't Get Enough," along with numbers ranging from the slyly homoerotic "Pretty Boy" to the moody thumper "Photographic," keep everything moving throughout. David Gahan undersings about half the album, and Martin Gore's two numbers lack the distinctiveness of his later work, but Speak & Spell remains an undiluted joy. ---Ned Raggett, AllMusic Review

 

 

Z tym albumem krytycy i fani mają problem. Z jednej strony wieszają na nim psy za prostackie brzmienie prostackich kompozycji, z drugiej strony chwalą jednak przebojowość doceniając kunszt głównie Clarke'a. I prawda jak zwykle leży pośrodku. Nie można powiedzieć, że "Speak And Spell" jest płytą beznadziejną. Są tu w końcu tak doskonałe nagrania jak "Tora Tora Tora", "Photographic", czy "New Life" (w edycji kompaktowej "Ice Machine" uznawane za jeden z najlepszych utworów Depeche Mode w ogóle!). ---muzyka.wp.pl
