Alan Wilder (ex-Depeche Mode) is Touring America

Alan Wilder is taking Recoil on the road in support of his best-of complication, "Selected".  He will be hitting North America throughout October and South America in November.  He's teaming up with Paul Kendall who says the shows are, "a presentation of Recoil, not a concert".  

Alan Wilder Joins Depeche Mode on Stage, First Time in Sixteen Years

Jason writes in with the news that Alan Wilder joined Depeche Mode onstage last week for their benefit gig supporting the Teenage Cancer Trust.  As a kid I remember joking about Depeche Mode with my friends that Dave Gahan was the singer, Martin Gore was the song writer, Andrew Fletcher was the "hand clapping expert" and the only real musician was Alan Wilder.  So I was a little annoyed when he left after the 1994 "Devotional Tour" to persue his side project, Recoil

A Pair of DM Collaborations

DEPECHE MODE songwriter, Martin Gore has completed a remix from Ken Andrews' band, ON. Andrews has been working on his solo project since his departure from FAILURE last year. The remix will be on a promo-only single, Shifting Skin, out April 4th. The album will be released soon after and has been recorded mostly by Andrews with help from members of Blinker the Star, Medicine, and God Lives Underwater. Alan Wilder (ex-Depeche Mode keyboardist) will be releasing a RECOIL album on March 7th titled Liquid.
