MARK'S NOTCAST Ep 144 : Depeche Mode's "Music For The Masses" 1987-88. 22 September 2021.
Notcast 144 : The summer of 1987 was a staggeringly expensive year for me - hello Depeche Mode, New Order, The Cure, The Smiths, U2, and Prince! (David Bowie was still in a suit, crawling out of a glass spider)... Depeche Mode released their sixth album - "Music For The Masses", and the singles "Strangelove", "Never Let Me Down Again", "Behind The Wheel", and the French-only "Little 15". Today I talk through the album and period, the musical development, the lyrical advances, and my theory around record covers. And what is the best Depeche Mode remix? Find out here! 22 September 2021.
