Modus Operandum: Depeche Mode in Detroit

John McCready, Face, The, 1989

IT'S JUST after one at the best club on the planet. This is Detroit’s Music Institute, an all-night and most-of-the-next-day juice bar with a sound system designed so that recurring phrases like ‘feel the music’ begin to make sense. House and Techno trax weave in and out of club classics like Dinosaur L’s ‘Go Bang’ to make up the Saturday night soundtrack.
