PRESS RELEASE


DEPECHE MODE



Depeche Mode are a young (average age 19), adventurous, dancey pop band from Basildon, England. They were formed in March 1980 as a three-piece, two guitar and synthesizer outfit, but later switched to all synthesizers because they liked the sound better.


Their music--catchy, silvery melodies with a solid back-beat--is chiefly written by Vince Clark, with some songs by Martin Gore. It's performed by Gore and Andrew Fletcher on synthesizers and Dave Gahan on vocals.


Their name--pronounced De-pech-ay, regardless of the lack of an accent!--was taken from a French magazine. While it means "hurry up fashion, " there's nothing hurried about the band or the music. The only thing quick about Depeche Mode has been their success in the U.K., and that's well deserved.


Depeche Mode began by playing at local clubs and moved on to support bands like Fad Gadget at the Bridgehouse in Canning Town. It was there that they caught the eye of Daniel Miller, electronic whiz-kid and prime mover of Mute Records. Miller put out their first single "Dreaming Of Me" on Mute in February 1981 and signed the band. The song immediately went into the U.K. Top 40, and even made it across the Atlantic to become a dance club import hit here in America.


The band's next two singles, "New Life" and this past summer's "Just Can't Get Enough", also went Top 30 in Britain, establishing Depeche Mode as bonafide pop stars complete with reams of press, airplay and TV appearances. Their debut album Speak & Spell, released in late November, shipped silver, signifying immediate sales of over 60,000 copies, and entered the album charts at #3.
