1986-02-22 - No.1 (UK) - Back to the Wall

[Taken from the now-defunct website www.sacreddm.net.]

BACK TO THE WALL
[No. 1, 22nd February 1986. Words: Max Bell / Mark Booker. Pictures: John Stoddart.]
" Depeche Mode is a democracy and that stops me writing everything in one direction. Apart from that I still believe in an old-fashioned song style and I like lots of melody. Some people can’t handle that. We can be really poppy one minute or we can sound harder and moodier. "
 Summary: The band are interviewed in West Berlin, discussing the atmosphere of the city and the resulting weightier tone of the forthcoming Black Celebration album. Fletch is putting the world to rights, Dave is fired up and ripe for world conquest, and Martin has, frankly, gone off on one, which leaves Alan to provide all the sensible answers. [1824 words]

Depeche Mode explain themselves
    For Depeche Mode Berlin has become a second home. It’s a city which suits their temperament and throws a reflection across their music. Berlin is a strange, eerie place, an island surrounded by a wall and bordered by a no-man’s land littered with crosses marking the graves of those who tried to escape from the East and failed. In February Berlin is chilling in every sense, it has an edge and Depeche Mode like that.
    In the past three years, Modey have spent a third of their lives here, mostly in the famous Hansa Studios where they recorded “Construction Time Again” and “Some Great Reward”, and are now finishing the new LP, “Black Celebration”.
    Walking out of Hansa’s control room, the members of Depeche Mode are a black celebration themselves. Dressed from head to toe in black leather, their skinny frames and pale faces make them appear mean. In fact they’re all exceedingly placid and pleasant but the image suits them like a second skin.
    “I feel ill,” Dave Gahan announces, indicating some stains on his brand new leather pants. “Sick.” Alan Wilder and Martin Gore follow him into the rehearsal rooms and hit the fridge. It’s not just armies that march on their stomachs. When Depeche are on tour or in a studio they keep a well stocked larder of vegetarian goodies for snacking on. [1]
    Martin examines a cheese roll with that customary far away look in his eyes. He always looks like he’s just about to say something earth-shattering. But he never does.
    Fletch is bumbling about in his usual fashion. He reads a story in the Sun about “Simon Jilting Yasmin for model” and tuts. “There’s no truth in it but these people ask for it.” Fletch is a moralist.
 
WHERE THERE’S A WALL
    Eventually Dave Gahan feels well enough to chat. I ask him what the fascination is with Berlin?
    “It’s the atmosphere. It’s a little place and it feels very cut off. There are no distractions like in London. I can’t work in England anymore. It’s funny. The studio is right next to the Berlin Wall but none of us has ever been to the East. Martin tried once but they refused him entry. Didn’t like the way he was dressed. Thought he was a hooligan.
    “People imagine we work here because it’s wow, you know, really heavy, but I don’t feel that. The place is quite suburban. Berlin’s like Brixton.”
    Fletch puts down his paper and we talk about the new single “Stripped”. All the band are excited about the song which sounds quite risky after the cheerfully old-fashioned pop of “It’s Called A Heart”.
    Fletch: “The idea of “Stripped” is to get away from technology and civilisation for a day and get back to basics in the country. It’s about two people stripping down to their bare emotions. In the video we’re seen demolishing a car and taking a TV apart… it’s a bit, er, symbolic.”
    Gahan says: “It’s not about sex. It’s to do with having nothing except yourself. The people in the song could strip off if they wanted to though.”
    “The song is also a bit chancy. It doesn’t capture you immediately. Some people hear it and say “Is that it?” Others go “Brilliant!”.”
 
THE POWER AND THE GLORY
    All the band agree that the single will stand out on the chart but Dave seems to like it more than the others. “I stuck out for it ’cos it excites me. It feels powerful to sing. The chorus is rousing and mob-like which I can get off on. Our last single was just alright.”
    From what I heard of the new album, “Black Celebration” is going to surprise everyone who still thinks Depeche are a weedy pop group. Martin Gore’s writing gets closer to the bone every day.
    The title sounds a bit morbid I venture. “Yeah it does,” Dave agrees, “but it’s a common thing. At the end of a working day you go out and drown your sorrows no matter how shitty you feel or how bleak your future looks.”
    Martin and Alan join in, but first Martin makes a rare announcement. “I feel at the moment I’m coming across totally wrong in interviews. And it’s all my fault. I can’t do anything about it. I say the wrong things.”
    Having made this rather strange little speech Martin falls silent for a second. “The problem is, I can’t open up and explain the songs. When I write it all seems logical. I create the right atmosphere – which is an attempt to get away from the softness of contemporary pop – but I know we’ll never be totally extreme.
    “Depeche Mode is a democracy and that stops me writing everything in one direction. Apart from that I still believe in an old-fashioned song style and I like lots of melody. Some people can’t handle that. We can be really poppy one minute or we can sound harder and moodier.”
    Alan Wilder reckons that the band are “alienating some of the teen market but gaining more respect. We don’t put ourselves across very well but we look better these days.”
    Depeche Mode always put a line on their album covers which tries to sum up the mood of their work. This time the line is “Life In The So-Called Space Age”, a typical example of Martin Gore’s mixture of cynicism and commonsense.
    “It means that despite all this,” he gestures vaguely around, “all this can go on and nothing is changed. People are still emotionally numbed by material possessions.”
    Wilder qualifies the statement. “So many interferences surround you in the Western World, they take the place of your emotions. People say Martin’s songs are simplistic but that’s a positive factor. He gets his point across.”
    Not everything on “Black Celebration” is so sombre although one song, “It Doesn’t Matter (2)” is, Martin says, “very desperate. Very very morbid. There is one quite funny song called “Sometimes” which is about someone who questions their surroundings and ends up becoming tiring and over apologetic.” Gore laughs nervously because he is a very autobiographical pop writer and the song is about him.
    A beer arrives so Martin perks up. “We’ve got this new minimal concept. I try to do the least amount of work possible so I’ll get paid the same and be able to go out clubbing more.”
    The rest of the band have a Martin Gore theory according to Alan. “The theory is Martin is a lazy sod who writes an entire album in an afternoon but pretends he hasn’t so he can take ages to think about other things and do nothing.” Martin makes another of his off the cuff statements. This one is a real cracker.
    “Four people is the right number for a pop group. History bears me out. Five people looks wrong and three is plain stupid. Four looks powerful.”
    You’ll be able to see just how powerful Modey look and sound when their five month world tour kicks off in late March.
    Dave is enthusiastic.
    “We haven’t played England for a while but I’m dying to get into the big halls again. I imagine some fans are a bit cross that we’re doing Wembley but we have to break out of this credibility thing. I thought The Cure doing Wembley was brilliant and I know I need large crowds these days to excite me.”
 
BAND AGED
    In this mood Depeche Mode are showing every sign they’ve grown up, moved on, as they put it. Gahan isn’t one for any false modesty. “No, we’ve influenced a lot of bands into a harder sound, Arcadia perhaps, Tears For Fears definitely. It paid off for them. Frankie did that too. I can’t stand bland, textured music. No one goes out on a limb. Glammy pop bores me silly. Obviously I won’t name them because I hate everything in the charts. I ignore it. I suppose A-Ha will take away everyone’s girl audience for a while because they’re hunky good looking chaps,” Gahan chortles. “The problem is that they probably speak funny.”
    Fletch looks worried. “They probably speak better English than you do.”
    Dave: “Rubbish. I bet they don’t.” Gahan has got the bit between his teeth. “We haven’t got any competition. We’re out on our own. You can’t categorise us. Maybe sometimes we’re a bit fussy with not putting pictures on covers but it’s better not to go downhill and be stuck with a stupid image. Look at this stuff about Simon Le Bon: poor bloke’s just got married but because the Sun have got a grudge against him they’ve stitched him up. For us it’s a fluke that we’ve avoided all the crap but I could see us getting huger. The German press invents stuff about us all the time.”
    One of last year’s best kept pop secrets was Gahan’s wedding to long time girlfriend Jo. “That was good. Just me, Jo, Fletch and Grania [sic] (Fletch’s girlfriend), mums and dads. [2] Alan and Martin missed the registrar’s but came to the party. It hasn’t changed the way we are. We’ve been together ages.”
    Dave is the last Basildon boy left in Depeche. Even Fletch has moved out. “Best thing I’ve ever done. It’s the first time I haven’t either been with parents or in a hotel room.” I ask them what they think about tax exiles and Fletch, who is normally the most self-effacing member, explodes: “It’s DISGUSTING.” He shouts. “It’s a joke. All these so called socialists. Look at Spandau! You take a year off and your career suffers. There’s no place like home. I believe in the welfare state and if that means paying 50% tax I’ll do it.”
    Gahan agrees. “It’s like the 70s all these bands living in mansions. If we did that the band would split up. And the money they save on tax they spend on first class air fares. They all come home every weekend!”
    Fletch is really hopping mad now. “Mansions! Air fares! They’ve got no confidence in their own futures. It’s like they’re making it while they can. We intend to stay around.”
    Dave Gahan gets up and wanders towards the control room. Before he goes in he turns round and says, “The thing is, by Christmas we’ll all be millionaires anyway. We know that.”
    I’m not sure if he was joking or not.
 
Depeche Mode
Stripped (Mute)
    Depeche Mode must rate as one of the most consistent if not one of the best pop bands of the 80s. They have a distinctive sound, but not so much so that each release sounds like the last one.Their lyrics actually mean something without being pretentious and over the top. Yet they never seem to get the adulation that their competitors get. Strange that.
    Let’s hope that the haunting stillness of ‘Stripped’ puts them up where they belong, before Frankie and Spandau reappear.
[1] - Have a butchers at what they managed to polish off each night on tour in 1987 here.
[2] - Just for the record, Fletch's girlfriend (now wife) is Grainne.

1986-02-26 - Smash Hits (UK) - Reviewed by Dave Gahan

SINGLES REVIEWED BY DAVE GAHAN OF DEPECHE MODE

THE PET SHOP BOYS: Love Comes Quickly (Parlophone)
This has a good chorus and it's very catchy - a good follow-up to "West End Girls". I hope they have a crappy looking video again because I liked that - Jonathan King slagged it off as cheap and horrible, the most appalling video ever made, but / thought it was simple, straight to the point, and I really liked the moody guy in it. It's funny reviewing a single sung by someone who used to interview us - I should be getting my own back. The runner-up single of the fortnight. I suppose.

SIGUE SIGUE SPUTNIK: Love Missile F1-11 (Parlophone)
This is basically electro-rock'n'roll, very much like The Silicon Teens, the band who first introduced me to electro-pop. Its got some good sound effects but I'm not sure whether it's worth the fuss - it's all a bit suspect. I suppose the "shock value" is quite good but it doesn't shock me. Their haircuts are pretty good, though - a lot of effort's gone into them.

SINGLE OF THE FORTNIGHT:
SIOUXSIE & THE BANSHEES: Candyman (Wonderland)
Siouxsie's not a "singer" like Aretha Franklin but she makes great use of what she's got and she always sounds exciting. She sings with a lot of sex - that's what I like. This is a great Banshees record. Obviously they've got a bit of a "formula", but I like their sound. I used to go and see them quite a lot when I was younger, when I was a punk rocker.
 
ARETHA FRANKLIN: Another Night (Arista)
She's got a great voice, but I preferred her when she was just history. When these people make comebacks they tend to return a lot blander. The song's not very good: it sounds like you've heard it a million times before.

REDSKINS: The Power Is Yours. .. (London)
Leave it out, X! Get back to journalism! (The Redskins singer, Chris Dean, is also a journalist under the pseudonynm X. Moore.) He talks about things better than he sings them. I agree, basically with all his socialist values but this won't convert anyone to the cause - it will turn people away.

STEVIE WONDER: Overjoyed (Motown)
The sleeve is atrocious and the song just sounds like any other Stevie Wonder ballad: bland, safe and boring - and you know there's bound to be a harmonica break any moment. It doesn't move any emotion in my body at all - I'd rather smooch to Siouxsie & The Banshees. It's not as bad as "I Just Called To Say I Love You" but it's pretty bad. I like the bird noises, though.

GRACE JONES: Love Is The Drug (Island)
A re-release: now that she's switched labels, her old record companies are churning out as much old stuff as possible. "Pull Up To The Bumper" was good, but I prefer the original "Love Is The Drug" by Roxy Music - this version's a bit "new wave".

JOHN TAYLOR: I Do What I Do (Parlophone)
I'm sure that Duran Duran like Depeche Mode's music as much as we like theirs - not a lot - but this is a totally different sound to Duran. The idea's quite groovy and the singing's not bad either. In fact, it's quite good, I suppose. Is it from a film? It is! Everything's from a film these days.

D.C. LEE: Come Hell Or Water High (CBS)
I didn't like "See The Day" - it was a bit of a rip-off of an old Earth Wind & Fire song - but her voice sounds better this time. The music still sounds fairly boring, though; there's no real hook.

KING DREAM CHORUS & HOLIDAY CREW: King Holiday (Mercury)
Yet another benefit record (see Bitz for details). Although I sometimes question the motives of the people who do these charity things, this is admirable. It's trying to get across to people what Martin Luther King was about and that's good because a lot of kids don't know about him and they should be educated. In fact, they should be educated in this sort of history at school - the history of the Normans is a load of crap. You probably get a lot more information from the sleeve than you do from listening to the record, though, because it's a bit bland and boring.
 
NANA MOUSKOURI: I Have A Dream (Phonogram)
She still looks exactly the same as she used to when I was about five. Do I have to listen to this? Oh well, every record deserves one listen - but after you've listened to this once you can smash it. This is an Abba song, isn't it? She's got a nice voice ... but I don't like it: it probably appeals to 80-year-old grannies.

PRINCE: Kiss (WEA)
The thing about Prince is that he always grooves - apart from that terrible song "Purple Rain" which was crap. I thought the last album, "Around The World In A Day", was a lot better than the "Purple Rain" album anyway - it wasn't as commercial but it was much groovier. There's a bit of James Brown in this new single - but I don't think it's a great single. It's a little too stodgy.

KATE BUSH: Hounds Of Love (EMI)
I really liked "Running Up That Hill" because it didn't sound like anything else that was on the radio. I'm sure it was so successful because there's a lot of people out there who are just sick of most current pop music. She's got a really good voice and she's really sexy sounding - rock'n'roll was all about sex originally, and I think people forget that. I don't know if this is a particularly good single commercially - but then I can never work out what is, anyway.

AMAZULU: Things The Lonely Do (Island)
I'm sure there are millions of worse bands than Amazulu - I just can't think of one. What was that last hit they had? "Don't You Just Know It"? With that terrible bit in the middle - "oh ah ah ah"? That was horrible - this is just totally boring. I actually prefer "Don't You Just Know It" - at least that was "wacky", like The Belle Stars. This is "let's be serious". It's the sort of thing I expect to hear in a fairground. I like fairgrounds, by the way. I used to work on a speedway in a fair when I was young and I thought about running away with them when I was about 14 (reminisces in this fashion for several decades - Ed.)...

DEPECHE MODE: Black Celebration (Mute)
Despite their seemingly endless stream of brilliant singles Depeche Mode always seem to go a bit wonky when faced with a whole album to fill.  Not this time though. "Black Celebration" doesn't only see them go a bit weirder with lots of dark, mysterious percussive episodes (sung by Dave Gahan) snuggling up agains sweet, fragile and rather sinister ballads (sung by Martin Gore) but is also the first time thay haven't had to throw in any second-rate stodge.  Their best album yet (apart from the very brilliant "Singles" LP, that is) (8 out of 10)
