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.
Shake The Disease – The Song
‘Shake The Disease’ is a song by English electronic music band Depeche Mode. Recorded at the Hansa Mischraum in Berlin, it was released as a single on 29 April 1985. ‘Shake the Disease’ was one of two new songs on the 1985 compilation albums The Singles 81-85 and Catching Up with Depeche Mode, along with the band’s subsequent single “It’s Called a Heart”. Band member Alan Wilder felt this song captured the essence of the band, saying that “there’s a certain edge to what we do that can make people think twice about things. If we’ve got a choice between calling a song ‘Understand Me’ or ‘Shake the Disease’, we’ll call it ‘Shake the Disease’. There’s a lot of perversity and innuendo in our lyrics, but nothing direct.”
