Band Bio: Depeche Mode is just one of the many bands that popularized synthesizers and keyboards, but it is probably the most popular and successful one as we speak. Ironically, the band started out as a rock group, consisting of Basildon, Essex, natives Andy Fletcher (b. July 8, 1960), Vince Clarke (b. July 3, 1961) and Martin Gore (b. July 23, 1961). Composition of Sound, as they named themselves, soon decided to go from guitar rock to synthesizer and electronica, the popular sound of the '80s.

Former punk band member David Gahan (b. May 9, 1962) came on board as lead singer in 1980, and the band name we know today can be traced from the title of a French fashion magazine, which translates in French to "Fast Fashion".
