Depeche Mode – Blasphemous Rumours
Rumours is spelled with a ‘u’ for this track. Depeche Mode is from Essex, England after all.
Current members of Depeche Mode first started playing music together in 1977, but didn’t start adding their trademark synthesizer licks on a record until 1980. They were then approached by a music exec in 1981 after hearing the single ‘Dreaming of Me.’ Depeche Mode released ‘Just Can’t Get Enough’ three months later, and they have been releasing hit singles ever since.
Blasephemous Rumours comes from their 1989 release ’101.’
Its hard to pick my favorite Depeche Mode album. I like the more up tempo stuff from the 80s and early 90s, but Ultra has been one of my favorite albums for some time now. One of the most relaxing records I’ve ever listen to.
