Welcome to a new series we are doing here on Home called, “Depeche Mode Located“. This new series will focus on fans who have searched out and documented locations where different Depeche Mode events have occurred around the world. This is a project I have been wanting to get going for a while now and wasn’t sure how to approach it since the idea of doing it is pretty overwhelming… as I’m sure you can understand. Then yesterday I came across some photos that made the project fall into place and thanks to Michael’s generosity, Depeche Mode Located is now a reality.
Michael Rose is a big Depeche Mode fan from The U.K. and while on a holiday to The US, he visited some amazing Depeche Mode related locations. Not only did he find these locations, he put together some really creative photos to document it. The photos were taken by, as Michael described, his patient and accommodating wife Caroline and what they have put together is a truly creative and fun way for fans to check out some classic moments from some locations in Depeche Mode history. Rather than going on and on about it, I’ll let the photos speak for themselves. I’m sure you’ll notice, but note the T-Shirts he’s wearing at the corresponding locations.
Old Mission San Louis Rey, Oceanside. (Songs Of Faith And Devotion)

The Mission, or The Mission U.K. in some markets, are releasing a new record called “Another Fall From Grace” on 30th September 2016 featuring backing vocals from Martin L. Gore of Depeche Mode. The two have been friendly with each other for years, so seeing Mart included on the record is not much of a stretch (though it might be to some fans of either band). Wayne describes the record, “This album is the lost link between The Sisters Of Mercy ‘First And Last And Always’ and The Mission’s ‘God’s Own Medicine’” which is really exciting to those of us who are fans of those two records. The album will also feature guest backing vocals from Gary Numan, Ville Valo of HIM, Julianne Regan from All About Eve and Evi Vine.
To look back at some of the connections between the two…
Some of you will remember when Wayne joined Martin and Andy to celebrate their 30th birthdays by joining them onstage for their glam rock, alter ego band Martin called, “The Sexist Boys” that they put together to celebrate the occasion.

In 2002, The Mission released a single called, “Shine Like The Stars”, which featured a cover of “Never Let Me Down Again” as a b-side track (“See the stars, they’re shining bright“). Which, as you know, Martin would have cleared to be released. Personally, and as a Mission fan, I like their take on it. If you missed it, here’s The Mission performing it live at the London Astoria back in 2002.
