Wait Till the Plate Stops Spinning…

Just like you, I always knew who Depeche Mode was and for the most part, their overall vibe – once an electro-pop act erring on the side of gay-like, and then becoming a darker, more mature sounded act post the late 80s; but there has been one common denominator with this U.K. act that hasn’t changed over the course of close to three decades: Songs built around the synthesizer. Now why did it take me so long to catch on then?

It took a tribute album ten years ago for me to go back and (re-)discover the originals.  For the Masses, consisted of 16 songs by 16 different artists – like Failure, Smashing Pumpkins, Veruca Salt, the Cure, and the real reason I bought it: SelfMatt Mahaffey‘s version of “Shame” lurks below…

Self :: Shame (Depeche Mode cover)

And then, JT – here is the song you asked for during that mammoth Monolith weekend.  It’s “Behind the Wheel”. (why this post exists)

Vodpod videos no longer available.
