Another Depeche Mode biography? - Yes! Does it offer anything new? - To someone who hasn’t read any biography about Depeche Mode so far – yes, of course. To someone who has read at least one biography - not really. It has a different angle, but it won’t "tell you anything you didn’t know when you woke up today". It is based on a personal view and interest, trying to find answers to questions like, “why did Alan really leave the band?”, “why is this band attractive to a large group of people but is misinterpreted, misunderstood or even ignored by big parts of the general music business at the same time?” and “how and why did the band change from a certain point onwards without being bothered, although some of the critical fans don’t like everything they are doing and releasing today?” It is based on a fans’ angle as well, trying to sum up opinion of fans on special events in the band’s history, and to find answers to questions readers sent to the author. Besides, it is based on a band’s angle, using quotations from different media, as this represents an attempt to let them tell their story in their own words – from their coming to the band, until 2017. This biography also tries to get away from the dark picture of pain and suffering, and in contrast features the amusing and professional sides to the band as well. It includes the author's own interviews with Alan Wilder, (who is prominently featured in this biography), Gareth Jones and Steve Lyon, as well as the analysis of a fan survey.
