In our latest Classic Pop Presents special edition 132-page magazine, we explore the world of synth-pop pioneers Depeche Mode.


We follow the band’s epic story – decade-by-decade – from their genesis in Basildon as synth-loving adolescents with Vince Clarke at the helm, through to the present day as a globally famous three-piece with over 100 million record sales under their belts.

Along the way, we turn the spotlight onto classic albums from every era of the group’s evolution including Speak & Spell, Black Celebration, Violator, Songs Of Faith And Devotion, Exciter and latest album Spirit – plus, we go behind the scenes via exclusive interviews with Depeche’s Martin Gore and Dave Gahan, as well as producers Tim Simenon, Ben Hillier and James Ford.

We also sit down with the two directors of the band’s pioneering tour film 101 about capturing the reality of life on the road.

Also inside, we deliver our definitive Top 40 Depeche Mode playlist as well as highlighting some of the band’s lesser-spun gems, we survey the bands videography, and we revisit the band’s mammoth global tours through the years.

Add to that our in-depth feature on Depeche’s many collaborators over the years, our investigation into collectible vinyl from the band’s catalogue and more besides, and it’s an unmissable issue!
