Alan Wilder Collected

Under this YouTube video it states this is a preview of a documentary called Collected. I would love that but maybe this is just an advert for the auction of Depeche Mode’s Alan Wilder’s goodies? As someone who had a chance to once be connected to DM during their best years it’s always a thrill to see anything that has to do with them. For the record I have a massive awesome Depeche Mode collection including back stage passes from 1988, multicolored German 12′s and a picture disc signed by all the band members. I need to make a video for you. I wish Alan would do another studio album with Depeche.

“One of my new year’s resolutions this year was to start streamlining my set-up at The Thin Line Studios. My needs have altered a bit since laptops, soft synths and plug-ins have come to the fore, and even though I’m emotionally attached, passing on some vintage gear and historical items seems like a good way to start. Since my teenage years I’ve been an avid collector of interesting and unique musical items, including a ‘Steinway’ Grand piano, vintage keyboards, synthesisers such as the ‘Mini-moog’, ‘Arp Odyssey’, a ‘Wurlitzer’ electric piano, plus ‘Manley’ valve amps, valve-driven ‘Telefunken’ amps and a ‘Manley’ limiter/compressor. There is one very special guitar and various ‘Emulators’ which were featured during the Mode tours, and I even have my old stage clothing, touring wardrobe, the ‘Devotional’ drum kit, drumming extras and other artifacts available.” – Alan Wilder

    woah cool stuff – also E-MU II and MiniMOOG – nice bit of Bowie on the piano too…

    That emulator II might be better off in a museum. All those disks with years worth of classic DM sounds on them. Very cool auction.
