As a fan of Depeche Mode since 1989 the owner of all the other books written on them, I wasn t expecting to read anything in here that I hadn t before How wrong was I This book covers all the time that Depeche were not on my musical radar and comes up with s
Really interesting book about the early years of Depeche Mode The author went out and conducted his own interviews with people who knew the band member in the Basildon, UK scene from which they arose He also researched Basildon its
The best account of the early lives of the band and their coming together you will read. A better understanding of the bandBeing a DM geek, I ve read several books on the band already but this is the one I enjoyed the most What sets it apart from a regular biography is the exploration of the band in the context of their roots in Basildon, and how this shaped them with Vince featuring as a major player for most of the book The author has meticulously researched the material and what really brings it al
It s no secret my love for Depeche Mode When I came across their music in 1983 it turned my world upside down when it came to what I liked music wise After I heard them, it was nothing but synthesizers, English bands, strange haircuts, makeup leather androgyny, fey lyrics, synthesizers, cold bleak drum machines, new wave, new romantics, cold wave, post punk and all the things that made up the early to mid 1980s for me All because of Depeche Mode 28 years later and I STILL love that kind of music than anything I ve heard since and seek out all the young bands pretending it s 1982 with their analogue synthesizers, angular haircuts, fashion sense and gloomy spirit Being in an all electronic band in the late 1970s and early 1980s was punk rock than so called punk rock which is a really narrow, regimented, rigid genre of music when you get down to it and is still the most futuristic and modern of movements in rock and roll history To this day, the best of the stuff from this era STILL sounds futuristic Punk rock from that era can sound as dated as doo wop music from the 1950s when compared to music made by forward thinking individuals and their machines I ve read other books about Depeche Mode, but this one by Simon Spence tries to do something a little different by going into their early years in exhaustive detail Also, there s no quotes
An interesting perspective on the band and a really well researched documentary on the origins of Basildon and the effect that the town s development had on the mentality of each of the individual members themselves However, this is a book for well seasoned fans only, as it is not nearly as detailed as previous biographies have been It s a really beautiful book, with an incredible layout and some nice
A great read A good insight into there early lives and career Can t wait for the second book if he writes it. Very interesting for any fan of Depeche Mode and their relationship with Basildon
