50 Day Meme Challenge 2014 - Day 40

40) How did you come across your favourite band?

When I first heard Depeche Mode in the eighties, they seemed like any other New Romantic band - tinny and more than a bit frilly.  I had been more into Soft Cell, Adam and the Ants and Flock of Seagulls - DM didn't figure on my radar til college.

Then the nineties saw a big change, when the guys hit the US grunge scene. Everything may have gone a little dark, but the Mode found their groove.

They have survived death, addiction and break ups - but are still ticking on.
