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.
See You – The Song
See You is the fourth UK single by Depeche Mode recorded at Blackwing Studios, and the first Depeche Mode single written by Martin Gore. The single was released in January 1982 and was later included on the band’s second album A Broken Frame. The single launched a small world tour, with extra band member Alan Wilder, although he did not contribute to the song or the album. There are three versions of “See You”—the 7″ single version (3:55), the album version (4:34), and an extended 12” version with a longer intro (4:50). The “Extended Version” and the “Album Version” are almost the same. The “Album Version” fades out about 20 second before the 12″ remix does.
Man With Binoculars – The Shape
This 7″ record has been modelled into a man looking through a pair of binoculars that have heart shaped lenses. Binoculars or field glasses are two telescopes mounted side-by-side and aligned to point in the same direction, allowing the viewer to use both eyes (binocular vision) when viewing distant objects. Most are sized to be held using both hands, although sizes vary widely from opera glasses to large pedestal mounted military models.
