DEPECHE MODE + WARPAINT @ SANTA BARBARA BOWL
OCTOBER 4TH, 2017


A long long time ago when Vince Clarke, Martin Gore, and Andrew (Fletch) Fletcher were calling themselves Composition of Sound, they overhead an unknown singer performing David Bowie’s “Heroes” at a Basildon, England youth center. They quickly asked the teenage singer to join their band. That person was none other than Dave Gahan. Soon, they weren’t calling themselves Composition of Sound, but Depeche Mode.

Fast forward to 2017 and that song is on the almighty Depeche Mode‘s setlist for their current Global Spirit tour for the their 14th studio album, Spirit. The evening after the mass shooting in Las Vegas at a concert event couldn’t have bonded everyone together more as fans gathered to hear their heroes Depeche Mode and supporting them was our very own Warpaint. We knew we would be spiritually saved, if only for a few hours.

Dave Gahan might not consider himself a hero, but after the admiration and extreme devotion shown to him in Santa Barbara, he might as well be. Gahan is one of the greatest frontman a band has had. His voice never waivers, he is in constant motion – his graceful and dramatic moves reminiscent of a matador. Gahan has always been engaged with the crowd, but this particular tour is different. Gahan seems to be free of the standard choreography, pouncing at any moment, like a panther with a cheshire grin.

Of course, their mega monster hits like “Personal Jesus,” “Enjoy the Silence,” “Everything Counts,” “Stripped,” stand out every single time at every single show. There is nothing like being in a crowd, waving your hands during “Never Let Me Down Again.” There is a strong bonding among strangers standing next to each other as we sing together. It never gets old. But when “Heroes” was performed, Gahan’s voice was softer and maybe it had something to do with the events of today’s world, but it was powerful.

Another hero? Of course, that would be Martin Gore. Gore has lived in Santa Barbara for years. So when Gore sang “A Question of Lust,” “Home,” and “Somebody,” his hometown crowd couldn’t have screamed more. He may not command the stage like Gahan does, but Gore is an integral part of Depeche Mode and a pretty damn good DJ.

It isn’t a Depeche Mode show without the artistic direction of Anton Corbijn. He has outdone himself once again bringing visual life to songs like the new “Cover Me.” (see video below).
We can be heroes, just for one day
We can be us, just for one day

Depeche Mode readies for its record-setting headlining run at the Hollywood Bowl

After wrapping up its lengthy Delta Machine Tour in support of its 13th studio album, “Delta Machine,” in 2014, English electronic band Depeche Mode decided to take a bit of a break.

The trio – including vocalist Dave Gahan, vocalist, guitarist and keys player Martin Gore and bassist and keys player Andrew “Fletch” Fletcher – didn’t stay dormant for long and reemerged in February with their brand new and politically timely single, “Where’s the Revolution.” The group also dropped its 14th studio album, “Spirit,” on March 17.

“You have to remember that Martin wrote these songs two years ago,” Fletcher said during a promotional press day in Los Angeles back in April before the Global Spirit Tour kicked off in Sweden on May 5. “That’s how his mind was thinking back then – things were bad with Brexit and then Trump is president – so Martin was already thinking back then that things were going to be bad.”

Of course the band, which has been an area favorite since the mid-’80s, even selling out the Rose Bowl in Pasadena with a crowd of 65,000 in 1988, wasn’t going to skimp on its shows in the Los Angeles area. At first, Depeche Mode announced two nights at the Hollywood Bowl, Thursday, Oct. 12 and Saturday, Oct. 14. As tickets began to sell out quickly, the band added Monday, Oct. 16 and a few days later, announced a venue record-setting fourth show on Wednesday, Oct. 18. Depeche Mode is the first band to play that many consecutive concerts at the iconic 18,000-capacity Los Angeles venue.

“We’ve always kind of held a special positioning here in Los Angeles,” Fletcher said. “Even from our early gigs in clubs to the Rose Bowl and it was a big deal for us when we played the Hollywood Bowl the very first time. It’s amazing now to be able to do that four times. It’s also fun to play these places with history. I mean, the Beatles played the Hollywood Bowl. That’s enough.”

Depeche Mode chose Los Angeles indie rock band Warpaint to open on the tour through North America and into Canada. Fletcher said he actually first met Warpaint anchor Stella Mozgawa a couple of years ago at his local pub in London.

“We sat down and actually had a meal with her and her friends,” he recalled. “They were just starting out then, they had maybe been around three years. We listened to their music and we just liked it.”

According to Fletcher, the Global Spirit Tour has sold more quickly around the globe than the band’s last two tours.

“We’re not like this high profile band and we haven’t done anything since the last tour and suddenly this tour is more popular than the last two,” he said. “It sort of makes you feel like we’re doing something right? It must be.”

Knowing that the diehard fans have purchased tickets to two, three or possibly all four of the shows at the Hollywood Bowl, Fletcher said that they’d make sure to change the set around a bit.

“We definitely have that in mind,” he said. “We will do something a little different each night, something special just for those fans.”

Back in August, hundreds of Depeche Mode fans got together at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena to watch a screening of the documentary “Depeche Mode 101,” which chronicled the final leg of the tour in support of its album “Music for the Masses” and the band’s sold-out performance at the Rose Bowl on June 18, 1988.

“That was a special time for Depeche Mode,” Fletcher said. “It was a special time for alternative music, it all kind of started around that period of time when all of these wonderful bands started coming out. When we announced it, there was a lot of skeptics that thought we wouldn’t sell many tickets. It was a risk all around and also for KROQ, since they were promoting it. It turned out to be a stand-alone moment that really kicked off some big music in America.”

For the new album, Depeche Mode stepped a bit outside of its comfort zone and tapped the talents of producer James Ford, who had previously worked with artists such as Arctic Monkeys, Peaches and Florence and the Machine. The process, Fletcher said, was incredibly fast for “a notoriously slow band in the studio.”

We finished the album in three sessions of four or five weeks,” he said. “That’s one of the reasons we’re in quite the good mood at the moment because it gave us literally two months off when normally we’d be slaving away until the end. James is a multi-talented, multi-instrumentalist, a great producer who knows how to get a great sound. We were quite confident because obviously the bands he produced before – Arctic Monkeys and Florence and the Machine – those are good sounding records and in his second guise he’s in a synth pop duo, Simian Mobile Disco, so we knew he was one of us.”

Fletcher said that the band is grateful that the fans have latched on to the new material including the singles “Where’s the Revolution” and “Going Backwards,” despite their clear political tone.

“I was surprised because we did make a similar album, our third album, ‘Construction Time Again,’ which was similar in theme,” he said. “Martin didn’t really like the reaction, the journalists talking about how it was just about politics and things like that. Martin is a brilliant songwriter and Dave is a great songwriter as well. He’s always written songs that make people think. In fact, a lot of those songs are about politics, but he’s done it with a twist with like ‘Personal Jesus.’ He uses analogies like sex and Jesus to get those thoughts across.”

“You have to give Martin credit because we’re releasing this album now and it’s the right time. All of this will lead to loads of other groups trying to scramble to get something together, but as you know those won’t come out for a year or two, but the moment is here. It’s incredible how hip politics is at the moment and that has to be a good thing because most of the time people aren’t interested in politics. Maybe it won’t turn out as doomy as everyone thinks, but who knows?”

DEPECHE MODE + WARPAINT @ SANTA BARBARA BOWL

Перевод отзыва о концерте в Санта Барбаре от Масахиро Куниёси и группы Вконтакте ~ The Sun and the Rainfall ~

Давным-давно, еще когда Винс Кларк, Мартин Гор и Эндрю (Флетч) Флетчер назывались Composition of Sound, они услышали, как кто-то поёт Heroes Дэвида Боуи в молодежном центре Бэзилдона. Они тут же предложили исполнителю, которым был не кто иной, как Дэйв Гаан, присоединиться к их группе. И вскоре они переименовались из Composition of Sound в Depeche Mode.
И вот на дворе уже 2017 год, и эта песня включена в сетлист всемогущих Depeche Mode в рамках их тура Global Spirit в поддержку своего 14го студийного альбома Spirit. Концерт, проведенный на следующий вечер после массовой стрельбы в Лас-Вегасе, как нельзя лучше сплотил фанатов, которые собрались послушать своих героев – Depeche Mode. А на разогреве играли наши лос-анджелесские Warpaint. Мы знали, что хотя бы на несколько часов мы находимся в духовной безопасности.

Может быть, Дэйв Гаан и не считает себя героем, но, учитывая восторг и удивительную преданность, которую показали ему фанаты Санта-Барбары, для них он настоящий герой. Гаан – один из величайших фронтменов всех времен. Его голос никогда не дрожит, он постоянно находится в движении – его грациозные театральные движения напоминают матадора. Гаан всегда легко находит общий язык с публикой, но в этом конкретном туре всё как-то по-другому. Гаан отринул стандарты хореографии, то и дело набрасываясь на публику, подобно пантере с чеширской ухмылкой.
Само собой разумеется, что их мега-хиты “Personal Jesus”, “Enjoy the Silenc”, “Everything Counts” и “Stripped” в любом шоу всегда на первом месте для фанатов. И ничто не сравнится с тем ощущением, когда ты вместе с толпой машешь руками под “Never Let Me Down Again”. Мы подпеваем все вместе, и даже между абсолютно незнакомыми людьми, просто стоящими рядом, возникает сильная связь. Такое никогда не надоедает. Но когда со сцены звучала “Heroes”, голос Гаана был мягче, чем обычно, и, возможно, на нас повлияли мировые события, но эта песня прозвучала очень мощно.

Что насчет других героев? Ну куда же без Мартина Гора. Гор уже много лет живёт в Санта-Барбаре. Поэтому, когда Гор пел “A Question of Lust”, “Home” and “Somebody”, едва ли ему подпевали где-то громче, чем здесь. Возможно, он не так хорошо руководит публикой, в отличие от Гаана, но Гор – неотъемлемая часть Depeche Mode и, к тому же, отличный ди-джей.

И какой же концерт Depeche Mode без художественной части от Антона Корбийна. Он опять превзошел сам себя, потому что смог оживить посредством видеопроекций такие песни, как “Cover Me” с нового альбома. А все классические хиты обрели новую жизнь в незначительных ремиксах и остаются всё так же актуальны.

We can be heroes, just for one day
We can be us, just for one day
