When four lads from London’s home counties got together in 1980, sharing a love of David Bowie and all with a keen eye on the synthesiser sounds then just gaining ground in the UK via artists like Gary Numan and Ultravox, they could barely have envisaged the kind of impact they would have on the world music scene. But today Depeche Mode remain the most popular and successful electronic group ever, and have themselves influenced a huge array of groups and artists in so becoming - stand up Marilyn Manson, Nine Inch Nails, Ministry, Pet Shop Boys, Linkin Park and the creators of thousands of dance and techno records.
