2003-09-24 - Depeche Mode - A MESSAGE FROM THE PENNEBAKERS

http://101dvd.depechemode.com/

A MESSAGE FROM THE PENNEBAKERS:
 
Depeche Mode Fans,
 
We are very happy to finally release "Depeche Mode 101" on DVD. However, many of you are asking why the DVD does not include the entire Rosebowl concert, and the simple answer is that we do not have it.
 
When we initially approached the band about releasing "Depeche Mode 101"on DVD, our primary motive was to have "101" available to fans in the most up to date, visually and aurally stunning format that technology would allow. And in doing so we were able to protect the video and bring it up to the highest standard possible before it was too late. After months in labs and studios, we now have a beautiful new video with a new 5.1 audio mix to release to you on DVD.
 
We have included as an extra on the DVD a one-hour television special of the Rosebowl concert that we made in 1989. The television special has never been released on video and had a very limited television distribution in Europe. It was a priority to preserve and re-master the video as it also was in jeapordy of deteriorating since it was originally mastered on an analogue video format in the days before digital video. The program has been inadvertently referred to as the complete Rosebowl concert. It is not the total concert, but the special featured two new songs, "Pleasure Little Treasure" and "Somebody" which were not included in "Depeche Mode 101." We are sorry for this misunderstanding and understand the disappointment about not having everything from that evening however it is unclear from our logs if the footage even exists of the three missing songs to make the complete Rosebowl set list. But we wanted to make available this program that has been sitting virtually unseen in our archive for so many years.
 
In some ways, just as "Depeche Mode 101" is not a concert film, but a film about a band - Alan, Andy, David, and Martin -- and a record of that particular time for them and their fans, we wanted the DVD to show the band and the fans today. In the 15 years since we shot 101, much has happened to Depeche Mode - notably, Alan is no longer with them. We wanted to include Alan in our DVD but it was his decision not to take part. What was important to us was to show the band members today, to find out what they are doing, and to have them reflect not only on the past but what they envision for their future. All we can say is that they graciously let us into their homes for this DVD and shared their lives and candid thoughts with us both on camera and in the studio for the audio commentary. We were reminded again of why we love this band - they are not only talented but they are just amazingly, wonderful people.
 
We are also grateful to Chris, Oliver and Jay, forever the bus kids, who very kindly let us film them doing what they are involved in now and for talking to us about how that trip changed their lives. And we truly appreciate Daniel Miller, of Mute Records, for taking the time to contribute his personal stories about the beginning of Depeche Mode.
 
So, we hope that you understand better our choices for the materials included in this new DVD release of "Depeche Mode 101" and enjoy it as much as we do.
 
Most sincerely,
 
Chris Hegedus and D A Pennebaker

2003-09-26 - Side-Line (Belgium) - Depeche Mode's 101 foottage gone missing (+ more...)

Depeche Mode's 101 foottage gone missing (+ more...)
Posted on 26/09/03


While Martin Gore has started work on songs for a new Depeche Mode album, which the band plans to record from March 2004 on, fans are stunned by what seems to be a real catastrophe, Depeche Mode speaking of course. It appears that the reason for not including the full 101 concert on the planned 2DVD, is that apparently the band does not have the complete recordings. Producer D.A. Pennebaker: "Many of you are asking why the DVD does not include the entire Rosebowl concert, and the simple answer is that we do not have it." In related news, the 2DVD set does not include a new interview with Alan Wilder, Sarah Mills, a spokeswoman of Alan Wilder, explains: "He was asked but declined to be involved in the extra filming for '101'. He didn't wan't to do a 'where is he now?' feature. And the film sort of speaks for itself in his view." And we stay with Depeche Mode's live album "101" that will be re-released as super audio CD on the same date as the "101" 2DVD hits the streets. This is the first time, except for "The Singles 81>85", that a backcatalogue album from Depeche Mode gets remastered and re-issued. In earlier reports Side-Line already suggested this would happen. From the Martin Gore camp comes the news that "Loverman" will be the next single from Counterfeit 2. "Loverman" is set to feature live tracks from his brief tour earlier this year along with new versions of "Loverman" and "Das Lied Von Einsamen M?dchen". Exact details have yet to be officially announced. And finally, "Bottle Living/Hold on" will be the 3rd and last single from Dave Gahan's "Paper Monsters" album. It will again be released in three formats.

2003-09-xx - Depeche Mode - Press Release

Depeche Mode Release Classic 2 Disc DVD Set
'101' + Live 1988 Rose Bowl Show Released October 13th
 
Depeche Mode release the legendary DA Pennebaker film '101' for the first time ever on DVD coupled with their classic concert 'Live At The Rose Bowl - June 18th 1988' on October 20th. This highly collectable DVD package features over 3 hours of footage and includes recent interviews with Martin Gore, Andrew Fletcher and Dave Gahan filmed by DA Pennebaker especially for this DVD.
 
1988 was a pivotal year for Depeche Mode. It was during their "Music For the Masses' world tour that they exploded into the musical mainstream. The Rose Bowl concert was the 10lst and last date of the tour and both discs capture a band and their audience at the height of their love affair.
 
Acclaimed film-maker DA Pennebaker was best known for his seminal Dylan film 'Don't Look Back' in addition to his work with Hendrix and John Lennon. Yet it was his marriage with alternative pioneers Depeche Mode that produced the frank and honest film '101'.
 
"It was the most interesting, fun film we've ever done," Pennebaker said.
 
"That tour and that film was so important, especially for the perception of the band," says Martin Gore. "We'd always been on the brink, especially in America but that 1988 tour was the first time we headlined big arenas, the first time the band really took off."
 
"There was something special about that whole time," Dave Gahan adds. "After that concert I remember sitting down in the dressing room and I just cried. It was just so emotional."
 
Andrew Fletcher echoes those sentiments: "It was one of the most amazing tours I've ever been on and a breaking point for alternative music in the US. The Rose Bowl was the first time that alternative radio sold out a big show in the US."
 
Integral to both the DVD and the concert was the relationship between band and audience. A competition was held nationwide where a bus load of winners followed the band around. Some of those fans are interviewed for this DVD and still remain in touch with Depeche Mode.
 
June 18, 1988 was a day to remember for the 60,453 fans who attended the show. Now we can relive the day through the eyes of one of cinema's most accomplished documentary makers.

2003-10-09 - DSO (UK) - Depeche Mode 101 Screening

http://www.dso.co.uk/gig114.htm

Depeche Mode 101 Screening
(feat. Andy Fletcher, D.A. Pennebaker and Chris Hegedus)
Prince Charles Cinema, London - 9 October, 2003
________________________________________
"What should have been a simple screening event almost wound up being a public therapy session for Andy Fletcher"
With just 420 seats available this promotional screening (to celebrate a 5.1 surround sound DVD release) of Depeche Mode's 1989 film 101, this was a quick sell out. Band member Andy Fletcher was in attendance firstly to introduce the screening and secondly to take part in a Q+A session with two of the film's three directors after the film. All three sat among the audience to watch the film. The cinema had been kitted out with several additional large speakers especially for tonight's screening so that the DVD's new 5.1 surround sound audio mix could be fully appreciated by the enthusiastically partisan crowd.
Stunning is probably a good word to describe the impact of the new audio mix. In a 5.1-equipped theatre this was the closest you could get to being at a Depeche Mode gig without actually attending one. The bass was thunderous but clear, and the clever split between the music mostly coming from the front channels (beneath the screen) and the screams of the audience coming from behind and at the sides were so effective that on numerous occasions people (including myself) turned around thinking that certain screams were coming from within the cinema audience.
It was hard to believe that the film was already fifteen years old, but sequences featuring HUGE brick-like mobile telephones caused a few laughs and immediately dated the events. The scene in which Fletch describes the role of each band member to an interviewer: "Alan is the musician, Martin is the songwriter, Dave is the singer... and I just bum around!" prompted cheers of delight and applause from the packed cinema. Fascinatingly, when American promoter Teresa Conroy first appeared on screen, there were several boos from the audience (Dave Gahan divorced his first wife for Conroy shortly after the film was released and entered into a short-lived marriage with the American).
If there was one take-home musical message from this, it was just how incredibly impressive Depeche Mode have been in the past. The soundtrack is crammed full of first class songwriting that sadly only serves to remind us how relatively mediocre the last few releases have been. The screening over, this is where the evening really came to life. Andy Fletcher stepped up on stage took a microphone and immediately said "Depeche Mode in happier times". This blatant public acknowledgement of the bands recent public infighting (largely between Gore and Gahan who both released solo albums this year) was a shockingly honest and controversial way to open up a Q+A session. And probably not what the promoters had imaged. Even more amazing was the huge mixture of loud boos and cheers from the audience in response to the statement. The boos presumably expressing their sadness over the internal conflicts and the latter cheering the fact that there were happier days still worth celebrating. Either way, Andy Fletcher's characteristically frank, if somewhat surprising, statement cast an odd shadow over the Q+A and coloured the questions that followed.
Responding to the (predominant) boos, Fletch quickly added "Let's hope there are more to come", which, unsurprisingly, prompted a more united round of applause and cheers. He then called up D.A. Pennebaker and (wife and co-director) Chris Hegedus to the stage. The period that followed lasted approximately twenty minutes with most of the questions, understandably, aimed at Fletch. So much so that he had to ask for questions specially aimed at the two directors who had flown over from America to promote the launch of the DVD. Unfortunately, the answers they gave were either monosyllabic or almost identical to all previous press they did when the film was first released. Given the hardcore nature of the audience, most will have heard much of both director's views before.
But again, it was the answers given by Fletcher to questions aimed at him that gave rise to several other controversial moments. When asked if Alan Wilder would rejoin Depeche Mode, Andy responded first by saying that it was unlikely Alan would even be interested in being asked, then added "Anyway, he's a hermit!". It may have been said in jest but again the reaction from the audience, many of whom still carry a torch for the departed Wilder, was a bizarre mixture of amusement, shock and disapproval. Although he did add a simple desultory filip of "... but we still all love each other". Yet this didn't stop him (either deliberately or unwittingly) expressing his views and he continued in a similar vein. It was as if he was oblivious to the effect his openness was having on this increasingly frenzied audience.
When asked if he saw Dave Gahan's solo gigs and if so what he thought of them, he confirmed that he had "Yeah, at the [Shepherd's Bush] Empire [in London in July]". The questioner added "What did you think of it?", to which Fletch simply and abruptly replied "It was good". There then followed a brief but decidedly pregnant pause, before again the female questioner shouted back at him "Good? Is that it?!". Amazingly, Fletch chose not to elaborate further. So, there are still some issues between him and Gahan then.
Thankfully, it wasn't all doom and gloom. When asked when the next Depeche Mode album would be out, Fletch confirmed recent press reports, saying that Martin Gore is currently writing songs for a new DM album which will be released early in the new year. Moreover, he said there would be a tour to support its release - cue big cheer of approval (and probably some relief) from the audience. He went on to say, and this was clearly a very personal statement, that he hoped "that the individual projects will come together to form an ever stronger Depeche Mode sound". It doesn't require much insight to read into that statement something other that what it says. We learned too that his favourite Mode album is Violator and that if pressed to use one word to describe his years in Depeche Mode "Fun" would be his choice. Pennebaker and Hegedus confirmed that there was no intention of releasing a 'director's cut' of 101. Pointing back to the screen, Pennebaker said "That is the director's cut". They said too that, given the opportunity, they'd love to do a follow-up film. Although this seems extremely unlikely, Chris Hegedus said of the band members: "They can never be apart for too long".
The former quiet man of the band also confirmed that he is very busy with his label Toast Hawaii and promoting its first band Client. A fan then asked if Toast Hawaii will still looking to sign new acts and accepting demos. Fletch confirmed this was the case, and the fan promptly ran up to the stage and handed over a CD-R much to everyone's amused delight. This was a nice, light-hearted way to end the evening and with time slipping away Fletch and the directors thanked the attendees for coming along. The assembled masses showed their appreciation for Fletcher, Pennebaker and Hegedus and slowly filtered out of the Prince Charles into a chilled London night. What should have been a simple screening event almost wound up being a public therapy session for Andy Fletcher. The personal wounds were obviously still tender and it will be fascinating to see what happens over the next year to the still-developing rock saga that is Depeche Mode.

News: 101 DVD release date moved...

We're gonna have to hold our breaths a little longer... the 101 DVD is no longer "just around the corner".

The 101 DVD has been pushed back to November 10th for UK and Europe and November 11th for the US, according to 101dvd.depechemode.com.

No official word on the reason for pushing it back, but these things happen all the time.

2003-10-10 - 101 Screening in London Last Night - Report by Justin

[A fan named Justin a.k.a. "Just101uk" posted a report of the 101 Screening on the EW3/HOME forum:]

http://www.depeche-mode.com/forum/index.php?topic=7406.0

   101 Screening in London Last Night
« on: Oct 10 2003, 09:51 »   
________________________________________
First of all it was great to see 101 again. I hadn't watched it for years due to my VHS copy being beyond repair.  Everyone knows the film well so no need to go over it but I must say the sound was really good and the songs especially sounded excellent. I must dig out my 101 cd this weekend I think!

Ok..after the show Fletch took the stage with D.A Pennebaker and his wfie Chris. Questions were invited from the audience and here are some of the main points. I'm sure I've forgotten things but I've no doubt others will post more later.

Fletch's first words were:"I hope you all enjoyed the film of DM in happier times," (Cue gasps from the audience!) but he then quickly said:"Not that there won't be happy times ahead for us."

Anyway...

Firstly on the future of DM Fletch said:"It isn't really an issue. Martin is writing new songs and we'll be in the studio next year with an album and tour to follow the year after."

On the producer of the next album, someone in the audience mentioned Flood's name and Fletch said: "Well we've destroyed his life twice with the making of 2 albums so I'm not sure he'd want to work with us again."

On Alan:"I don't think he'd want to work with us again. He's now a hermit."

On World Violation video/DVD he didn't rule it out saying that the band do not just want to release everything in a rush all at once. He said they would rather take their time over things and issue a product that offered good value for money. I'm not sure if he knows exactly how much footage their is of that tour but I think he got the message that it would be a popular release!

On lack of radio play he said that DM don't really need it anymore and its not something that they worry about.

On the issue of album leaks and downloading he said:"That's a whole new debate. I actually think it benefits DM although we could spend hours in the pub debating this over 3 or 4 pints of Fosters!"

Someone asked him about the set lists for gigs and again he mentioned Ice Machine. He said it missed out by 1 vote on the last tour (Dave's vote apparently) and someone shouted:"Well put it in next time!"

On the issue of the whole 101 gig being filmed/put on DVD, Pennebakker answered that at the time of making the film they were not thinking about the Rose Bowl gig being filmed and released in its entirety. He said that eventually it may be possible to get some further footage but that its highly unlikely given the time and money that such a process would involve.

On Alan not contributing to 101 DVD Chris Hedeguss said they did approach Alan but he turned them down.

I'm sure I'll remember more later or perhaps someone else will remember something I've forgotten!

Among the audience last night were some of Fletch's family, Daniel Miller, Andy Franks etc. Also the posters in the foyer area had a release date for the DVD of 3 November so who knows when it will finally appear.....

Anyway, an enjoyable evening and it was brave of Fletch to stand there and take some difficult questions. He answered them all pretty well although he looked a bit uncomfortable and nervous at times.

Justin.

2003-10-14 - Recoil - DEPECHE MODE DVD RELEASE '101'

http://recoil.co.uk/oldside/report/bullet/area.htm

14/10/03:    DEPECHE MODE DVD RELEASE -'101'


On November 10th, Alan's former band Depeche Mode released the film '101' for the first time ever on DVD coupled with their classic concert 'Live At The Rose Bowl - June 18th 1988' .

Directed by D A Pennebaker, Chris Hegedus and David Dawkins, the DVD package features over 3 hours of footage and includes recent interviews with some band members, Daniel Miller and some of the fans.

1988 was a pivotal year for Depeche Mode. It was during their "Music For the Masses' world tour that the band exploded in the USA. The Rose Bowl concert, which played to over 60,000 people, was the 10lst and last date of the tour and both discs capture a band and their audience at the height of their love affair.

Acclaimed film-maker Pennebaker was best known for his seminal Dylan film 'Don't Look Back' in addition to his work with David Bowie, Jimi Hendrix and John Lennon.

Q&A session with Fletch after 101 video projection in Paris October 20th 2003
 

101 was also screened yesterday in Paris with the presenceof Andrew Fletcher for a Q&A session after seeing 101.
Here are some of the questions and answers from yesterday :
-Q: Will there be a new album with Depeche Mode? Is there a chance that you will be reunited again despite all the rumours spreading ?
A: Martin has started to write some new songs and we're supposed to meet in mid-November also with Daniel Miller to see what it sounds like and hopefully we'll be in Studio for March /April 2004 hoping to release our new album for Spring 2005 followed by a Tour. Seeing again 101,I thinkit would be a very good idea to play again some of our old songs for the next tour.
Q : If you had to choose one song that would sumup all the best of what you've done with DM which one would you choose?
A : It will be for sure "World in my eyes" from Violator which I consider is the best album of our career.
Q: What about the remix album you mentionned some time ago will it be released ?
A : Well we had about 19 hours of material to chose from, and we finally sumedall up to 2 cd's of our best remixes also including some remixes never released before. there will also be some new remixes done by nowadays remixers. All this should come out in April 2004.
Q: You had the choice between 101 and Devotional, as on the official website many people voted more for the release of Devotional than for 101?
A : well they are not the same kind of material, 101 is a rock documentary and Devotional is just a live video from one of our tour. that's just it.
Q : Will you ever release a video from the Violation Tour?
A : when we were kids we used to listen to Deep purple who released for each album they made a live albumand a live video, wedon't want to do that for each album we release. We have filmed the Violation tour, but we have no plans to release a live video for each tour or album.
Q: Do you think Martin will let Dave write some songs for the next album:
A : Well if David bring some songs that is good enough to fit in the album , yes. I had the chance to work with two of the best writers : Martin Gore and Vince Clarke, and I hardly imagine for the next albums martin doing the music and Dave the lyrics, that wouldn't do it.
Q: What about Alan ? after all he also contributed a lot into your work in the past ?
A : Well it's true we do miss Alan allof us, but now he's away from everyone . Nobody in the group has news from him, the last time I saw him was 4 years at a Christmas party in Mute. I can understand that after being in Depeche Mode you would like to get away from all. But sadly nobody has any news from him.
Q: D.A. Pennebaker said back 1999 that during the 101 shooting he knew that a band member didn't have his keyboard plugged during the live performances is it true?
A : ( laughing) well Penny (pennebaker) isn't nice to reveal Alan's secret that way ! Alan's gonna be angry now!
Q: Is it true that Dave did record some audio parts of 101 after the shooting?
A: Well that's something that is done for live recordings usually by every artist when the results are not always correct. He didn't record the whole song or a whole melody he just corrected some sentences or words that didn't sound correct.
Q: Why did you chose to work with D.A. Pennebaker instead with Anton Corbijn for 101?
A : at that time Anton was quite only our photograph and we barely had done a few videos with him, that's the reason.
Q : Did you pick up some ideas from the way some of your fans are dressed to choose your style in the band?
A : interesting question, At the beginning in fact we all dressed individually on our own way, but after all we decidedto all wear black that would be best and fit us all. But that's all, I may just look at any of you and find something interesting I would pick up for me but that's all.
Q : Will you do more concert dates for next tour? and some more in France as you did quite a lot in Germany last time? Will you like to finish the tour on a big stadium like you did for 101 ?
A : (laughing) Well no we'll do 50 in germany and no more in France ;) Well I can't tell where we're going next time and how much dates there will be for each country. Last tour Martin only wanted to do 80 dates and with barely no break between each place. For next tour I would like to do it on a 2 leg Tour so we can do it at a more calm pace. As for the stadium it was nice for 101 but right now we search more to be closer with the public so it's not in our plans to do big stadiums for our concerts.

Q : After Martin and Dave releasing an album would you do it? and would you contribute with new songs to the next album ? Could you sing something for us?
A : Oh , well in fact you know, they were the ones who copied me, because I was the first one to release a solo album called "Toast Hawaii " that was mainly Dave on drums, Alan on piano, Martin and I on guitar , and we were doing covers of classic rock songs. There's only one copy and that's Martin who has it , because if I would have it i would throw it in the garbage. Well it's chance you never heard my lyrics, so no I won't write any songs to the next album we already have one and maybe 2 songwriters among the band and that's enough. As for singing my reputation is already bad enough I don't want to make it worse.
Q: have you done all your choices for the remixers that will work in the remix album? and what are your favourite electronic band/artists at the moment?
A: Well we haven't already choosed who will be working for those remixes,If we meet again in 3 or 4 weeksi'll be able to answer you, but right now I'm not able to tell you who will do some remixes for us. As for the artists I prefer at the moment I think it's quite obvious to say it's CLIENT or I wouldn't work with them. i mean that's why Irpoduce them because I think they're the best electronic band of the moment.
Q: Do you know which producer may work on the next album with you?
A: well no, we're still in the writing process with Martin and anyway right now Imust admit we have strange relations with our producers. There are no news of Tim Simenon since we worked with him, the same happened to Mark Bell, even Flood disapeared at the time, he's in Russia now, but that's all, there's some kind of curse among DM producers, I didn't thought we were that terrible...
Q: What do you think of the french audience?
A: (laughing) terrible

Q: Dave came in Europe to meet the fans last June ans now we have to the chance to have you, do you think there's a chance of seing Martin coming to the fans?
Well you know I think at that exact time martin is by his swimming pool and enjoying it. Anyway he's on his writing process of the next album at the time that's the important.

Q : Was it a band choice or any of you to not include subtitle for foreign languages on the 101 DVD ? Did you record your commentaries all together ?
A : Well I can't tell I mean I'm not in charge of those aspects (Labels/Mute staff member answers :) there isn't subtitle on the movie but there will be some on the bonuses with the audio commentary of the band members and the Pennebakers.
Each of us , along with Pennebaker recorded individually our comments about 101 while we were watching it.
