Topic: Depeche Mode - Brum

Saw this lot for the first time. I got into them in the late 80's after Violater. Then a bit more from her in doors.

But they were superb, proper stadium stuff & the volume was immense. Dave Gahan is up there for me. Enjoy the Silence is one of the best songs ever by anyone.
Push comes to a shove New Order are the best electronic group, but these are a close second. A great evening.

Re: Depeche Mode - Brum

I love The Mode - I have a very vivid memory of standing in me mate's dad's greenhouse listening to the radio as New Life was playing in 1981.  I was 10.  I remember thinking - this is fucking ace and started buying the 7" singles before then buying buying up all their vinyl - i've shit loads of it.


However I have never seen them live.  The ticket price of that tour was a bit rich.


Have you listened 101 or seen the accompanying film?  it is very good.  Mode in there absolute pomp IMHO.

Aim Low and miss...

Yes wasn't cheap, but it was money well spent. A proper stadium band. The bass line to enjoy the silence still gives me the shivers.

The tshirts were 30squid. They will make some serious money from this tour I reckon.
