Depeche Mode became the world's best selling synth led groups selling in excess of 40 million albums. From Basildon boys to globetrotting stadium superstars, clean cut to drug fuelled and back again, they have done it all and survived - quite literally in the case of vocalist Dave Gahan. By 2002 they had toured the world twice over, playing to a combined audience of over two million and won number awards including Q magazine's Innovation award. For this biography, Jonathan Miller has carried out exclusive interviews with founder member Vince Clarke, producer Gareth Jones and has included previously unpublished interview material with all the band members themselves. Friends and family have also assisted the author in unravelling Depeche Mode's unconventional work dynamic and artists including Gary Numan, Howard Jones and Thomas Dolby have helped to set out the electronic music scene that Depeche Mode have come to undisputedly preside over. With an introduction by Thomas Dolby.
