Depeche Mode: Modes to Freedom

Betty Page, Record Mirror, 22 January 1983

A YELLOW PLASTIC watering can rests idly on the floor, haying just recovered from a bashing the previous night in the name of 'percussive effects'. Worn leopardskin cushions are scattered on an equally worn, but homely, settee. All it needs is the rubber plant to make it as cosy as mum's sitting room.
