The best Depeche Mode has gotta be VIOLATOR, yar?
Any fans of Depeche or Mr Gahan?
Enjoy The Silence is awesome.
like, ever ever. I have listened to it about 89 times in the last few days on my pod... i can't get sick of it... you should also check out this alternative version of the clip on youtube...
because we all wanted to be, or shag, Dave Gahan.......
Best single is Enjoy The Silence or Everything Counts.
I only have greatest hits type stuff.
lots of interesting beeps and bleeps which remain timeless...
how for the first two years of their existence there was an accent on the lost e in depeche. depech-ay. and then they realised it sounded SHIT and stopped. rofl.
That's pretty funny.
but i don't have a cultural reference point from living 'here' at that very time...
They were called 'peche mode.
*it's your favourite deflating brightly coloured beach ball here... I have a good memory.
bbc documentary made in the eighties about wherver they're from, how there's an underground music scene there and how depechay mode are the highlight. all of the band members said depechay.
i don't believe you.
but then again, don't know what you sound like so maybe it's just the way you speak?? ;-)
rhyming with latte
from now on everyone pronounce it like that and tell everyone you know thats how its really pronounced. please.
like, I'd be spat at by Frenchmen all over the globe, they'd steal my records and cd's and then run away.
But I can 'trial' it for a bit.
I get it now... HA HA HA.
So, like, REALLY? People called it Depp-ehs-ay?
Not sure what to make of that one!
of a mullet headed essex boy wearing a nippleless leather vest was even funnier
Perfect. Comedy Gold strikes.
but depeché would be pronounced depp-eh-shay. depeche would be pronounced depp-esh... so if there was an accent over the last e originally, they were right to say depp-eh-shay.. non? Lyle?
depp-eh-shay would have been depechè
Depeche Mode give a spoonerism in french : Depede Moche ( = des pedes moches = ugly faggots )
Wonder if they knew that when they started out???
Pede or Pédé is short for pédéraste ( who loves young boys ) which has been misused as an insult against homosexual since 1830.
I don't think they might know that...
But for me Black Celebration is better ( and my second favourite may be Music for the masses ).
These 3 albums are classics.
