See the Stars they're shining bright...

It's over again...after months of waiting with excitement it ended in almost two hours.17,000 Turkish fans shouted , sang the songs , waved hands...No need for fancy words this is Depeche Mode and they were great as they always be.The show was at one of the greatest spots of Istanbul : between Bosphorus and the trees. The atmosphere was great(we don't want to mention the Organisation Company sucked).Oh god it's too hard to wait for another five years.

What Are You Waiting For?

Johan Lindeberg , creative director of 21st Century lifestyle brand J.Lindeberg has designed Dave Gahan's stage clothing which Dave is wearing throughout Depeche Mode's Playing the Angel World Tour , music videos and press appearences.The designs include sharp suits , waistcoats , t-shirts , shirts and belts and feature exclusive graphic prints inspired by Dave Gahan's tattoos.
In addition , Dave together with Alison Mosshart of The Kills are the new faces of the J.Lindeberg 21st Century Statements campaign for spring-summer 2006 , shot by photographer Steven Klein.
Dave has recently celebrated his 45th birthday and he's still one of the hottest guys on the planet. We're hoping to see him in(and hopefully out of) his J.Lindebergs at the end of July in Istanbul...

Precious and Fragile Things...


'Precious' is the addictive first single from Depeche Mode's eagerly anticipated eleventh studio album 'Playing The Angel'. The single is released October 3rd on Mute and the album follows on October 17th.Written by Martin Gore and produced by Ben Hillier (of Doves and Blur fame) the new single is quintessential Depeche Mode with a kinetic hook, hypnotic vocals and a glorious chorus.

Yeah...they're back.After 4 years they're gonna feed us with their music again. We listened "Precious" illegaly in early August and we really loved that song.

Precious Pta

Things get damaged/Things get broken/I thought we'd manage/But words left unspoken/Left us so brittle/There was so little left to give...
