2003: Martin Gore's Counterfeit 2
« on: 24 March 2012 - 03:50:37 »
This thread contains all news items regarding Martin Gore's second coveralbum.

There was a lot of overlap in the press at the time, with a lot of media talking about both Dave Gahan's solo album as well as Martin Gore's album in the same news item. Such news items are posted in both threads.

2001-04-17 - Intro (Germany) - Droge/Familie

http://www.intro.de/kuenstler/interviews/23012502/depeche-mode-drogefamilie

(...)

Aber gibt es Überlegungen, irgendwann mal mit einem zweiten Solo-Album aufzuwarten?
Ich mag die Idee, es noch mal zu versuchen [das bisher einzige Solo-Album Martins, “Counterfeit”, floppte Anfang der Neunziger ziemlich], aber es ist einfach eine Frage der Zeit [sagt im Original: It’s a question of time], ohne dass man verrückt wird bei all dem Trubel. Vielleicht, wenn die nächste Tour zu Ende ist und wir uns mit Depeche Mode für eine Pause entscheiden. Aber man muss natürlich auch wissen: wir haben noch andere Verpflichtungen außer Pop, wir haben Familien. Und es ist wirklich langweilig für meine Frau und die Kinder, wenn ich überhaupt nie da bin.

2002-03-01 - CDnow (US) - Martin Gore New Solo Album

www.cdnow.com

After playing to 1.5 million fans in 24 countries during the latter half of 2001's Exciter tour, Depeche Mode has vowed to lay low in 2002.
The band's multi-instrumentalist songwriter, Martin Gore, is using the time off from the band to begin work on a solo album of covers. "I thought rather than sit at home doing nothing, I might go make a covers record, so I'm just doing a covers record on my own this year," he says.
While Gore reports it's too early to reveal his intended track listing, he will begin work on the effort in his home recording studio in California next week. Currently, the singer-songwriter is mulling over just how much tinkering he wants to do with the original songs.
"I'm finding it hard to visualize at the moment because when you record covers that you really like, it almost seems sacrilegious to go too far away from the originals," says Gore. "But at the same time, I don't just want to recreate the originals. So its going to be a fine balance between making something that was not electronic at all into a new, interesting electronic version without destroying what you found appealing about it in the first place."
Gore's last and only solo effort, Counterfeit e.p., surfaced in 1989. Singer Dave Gahan is also using the year to finish the recording of his debut solo album, according to Gore.
Meanwhile, the next big event is the group's schedule in March 8's One Night in Paris, The Exciter Tour, a pay-per-view concert recorded at Paris' Palais Omnisports de Paris Bercy last October. As it has done so many times in the past, the group opted to enlist longtime collaborator Anton Corbijn to direct the show.
"I think Anton always comes to everything with a very unique perspective," says Gore. "He always manages to capture the spirit of the band better than other people. A lot of people don't like the idea that we always use Anton, but we fell very comfortable with him. Because we have had a relationship with him that has lasted so long, there is element of feeling at ease with each other."
One Night in Paris, The Exciter Tour debuts March 8 on iN Demand (8:00 p.m. ET), TVN (9:00 p.m. ET), Echostar (9:00 p.m. ET), and DirecTV (9:00 p.m. ET).
At the end of 2002, meanwhile, Gore says the group will address its future. "It's a gray area. We don't really sit down and discuss things like that. I think all of us, in the back of our minds, want to carry on as long as we are enjoying it, and until now, we've always enjoyed it. So I'm sure after we have gone off and done our own things, we'll have discussions and decide what the next phase is."

2002-03-11 - dm-museo.cz (Czech Republic) - Martin Gore také sólo

http://www.dm-museo.cz/clanek/martin-gore-take-solo/737

Martin Gore také sólo

Gareth Jones v jednom z rozhovorů k připravovanému cover-albu skupiny Erasure (bez účasti Depeche Mode) prozradil, že Martin Gore chystá další sólové album, na kterém by se měl také podílet.
Gareth ovšem později e-mailovou zprávou tuto informaci dementoval. Martin Gore se po oznámení připravování první sólové desky Dave Gahana rozhodl skutečně natočit další sólové album, s producentem Jonesem ovšem nepočítá. Termín Martinova nového e.p. není dosud známý. Předešlá sólová deska Counterfeit e.p. mu vyšla v roce 1989.

Fletch news
While we have told you about David and Martin's solo projects, there hasn't been much discussed about Andy's recent activities.
Fletch attended the recent Sonar Music Festival in Barcelona (June 13th through 15th, details of the event here). He recommends it, if you enjoy good music and visuals.
After the festival, Fletch went to Los Angeles (traveling by train to Santa Barbara from Union Station in Los Angeles) to visit Martin, and see how his Counterfeit solo project is coming along. Andy has heard some of Martin's tracks, and reports that they are very good.
Fletch is currently putting his time into his new record label (Toast Hawaii, through Mute). The first group on the new label is called Client. Their first single is a DJ-only white label 10" single. The tracks are "Client" (Harder Sex Mix) and "The Price Of Love" (Dub). To hear a sample of "Client", we suggest you visit Client's web site, at www.client-online.net.

2002-07-18 - PeterToo on the HALO forum - Martin Gore Solo?

http://www.depeche-mode.com/forum/index.php?topic=2971.0

martin gore solo?
Martin is working on his solo album of covers in his home studio. No release date has been set yet, but he is in the studio pushing away at them buttons, so it will show up sooner or later. Although you and me alike would prefer sooner, there's just no telling at the moment.
Tentative plans had it slated for release in time for the X-mas rush, while others say a release early next year is more likely.

Rush
