Orange County + Huntington Beach + California + A Wedding Photographer with an eclectic taste in music will give you what I think the most diverse West Coast Wednesday Videos Of The Week.
This week’s video is from a group that breaks the mold with their music, lyrics, videos, fashion-sense & style. I’ve been following them for a couple decades & I think that this week’s West Coast Wednesday Video has some raw flair and creativity that was ground breaking and chart topping back in the early 80’s. In fact, their music was very “pop” and a lot more “happy” back then – but over the years, this band kept raising the bar in music that inspired some of today’s rap, pop and rock stars.
You may or may not have heard of a little band out of the UK called…
Depeche Mode (IPA: [dɛˈpɛʃ], de-PESH) are an English electronic band who formed in 1980, in Basildon, Essex. The group’s original line-up consisted of Dave Gahan (lead vocals), Martin Gore (keyboards, guitar, vocals, chief songwriter after 1981), Andrew Fletcher (keyboards) and Vince Clarke (keyboards, chief songwriter 1980–81). Vince Clarke left the band after the release of their 1981 debut album, and was replaced by Alan Wilder (keyboards, drums, production) with Gore taking over songwriting. Wilder left the band in 1995 and since then Gahan, Gore, and Fletcher have continued as a trio, enlisting the services of additional musicians for live performances.
Depeche Mode are one of the most successful, influential, longest-lived bands from the early 1980s. They have had forty-seven songs in the UK Singles Chart and #1 albums in UK, US and throughout Europe. According to EMI, Depeche Mode have sold over 100 million albums and singles worldwide, making them the most successful electronic music group in music history. Q Magazine calls Depeche Mode “The most popular electronic band the world has ever known”.
This week’s West Coast Wednesday Video Of The Week is from Depeche Mode & the video is “Just Can’t Get Enough.” It’s definitely one of my favourites and I think it lends itself to a fresh and new year that we’re entering in.
