Depeche Mode – The Artist

Depeche Mode are an English electronic band formed in Basildon, Essex in 1980. The group consists of founders Dave Gahan (lead vocals, co-songwriting), Martin Gore (keyboards, guitar, chief songwriting), and Andy Fletcher (keyboards, bass guitar). Depeche Mode released their debut album Speak & Spell in 1981, bringing the band onto the British new wave scene. Founding member Vince Clarke left after the release of the album; they recorded A Broken Frame (1982) as a trio. Gore took over the lead songwriting and, later in 1982, Alan Wilder joined to fill Clarke’s spot, establishing a lineup that continued for 13 years.

Everything Counts – The Song

‘Everything Counts’ is a 1983 song by the English electronic band Depeche Mode from the album Construction Time Again. The single introduced a transition in lyrical content for the group. “Everything Counts” specifically addresses the issue of corporate greed and corruption in Britain, as the chorus sings of “grabbing hands” that “grab all they can”. Perhaps surprisingly, the single was released at a time when the band itself was not under a formal contract with Mute Records (Gore publishes his songs under the name “Grabbing Hands Music”). In addition to “found” sounds used as samples, the single also samples a variety of musical instruments, such as the xylophone and a melodica (which Gore has been known to play on stage for the song). It was also the first song in the band’s catalogue which includes both of the band’s singers prominently (at different times). Lead singer Dave Gahan sings the lead vocals on the verses, while main songwriter Martin Gore sings the lead vocals on the chorus with backing from Alan Wilder. 

The Grabbing Hands Logo – The Shape

Modelled into the silhouette of the Grabbing Hands Music logo. The image of a single human hand was the logo that lead singer, Martin Gore used to publish his music under, Grabbing Hands Music. A hand is a prehensile, multi-fingered appendage located at the end of the forearm or forelimb of primates such as humans, chimpanzees, monkeys, and lemurs. The human hand normally has five digits: four fingers plus one thumb; these are often referred to collectively as five fingers, however, whereby the thumb is included as one of the fingers.
