We all have a favourite band I guess. Mine is Depeche Mode. Formed in the early 1980’s in Basilden UK the band are still going strong almost 40 years later and still releasing new and relevant material.
I started following Depeche Mode in 1990 when I purchased their hugely successful album called Violator. With thumping tracks such as Enjoy the Silence, World in my Eyes and Personal Jesus I was immediately hooked by their sound.
I quickly filled my shelves with their back catalogue and have purchased every record since. I have been lucky enough to see the band live on many occasions and they have somewhat been the sound track to my life.
I have a broad musical taste and listen to lots of other bands and artists but I always go back to DM on a regular basis. My kid’s have been brought up listening to them. To be fair to them they had no choice really but it makes me smile when I hear them singing along in the back of the car to one of their tracks.
They have given me lots of listening pleasure and long may they continue to keep innovating and producing top quality music. Thank You, Dave, Martin & Fletch for being the soundtrack for my life.
