Dude walked away from Depeche Mode when they were clearly destined for super stardom. Pioneered the 80’s Electronic Pop sound. So many bangers.
I don’t think I knew the connection between Yazoo and Depeche Mode until this moment.
I do love love early Depeche Mode.
Legend. Dream studio stuff too.
I also didn’t realize that 1/2 of Erasure was 1/4 of (original) Depeche Mode. maybe I did 25 years ago and forgot.
Holy jaysus. Heaven.
Yep. Bright and airy and loads of space!
memories of schoolboy me spinning around on the waltzers at Tor Fair while this was blasting out of the PA
also, he was still in Depeche Mode when he wrote ‘Only You’ and they rejected it
(…though if they hadn’t then maybe there’d be no Yazoo)
How did you not know this?!
