1986 Depeche Mode and The Cure French Studio

This is a great video of Depeche Mode and The Cure from 1986. Watch Martin Gore playing Strangelove on his Guitar before Music for the Masses was released. Alan Wilder & Martin loading the song Nothing into an ancient computer by floppy disk and much more. In my opinion this captures DM at their very best moment in history right before their greatest album was released. Many will argue this was The Cure’s greatest period too and watching them work out the song Just Like Heaven is well heavenly.

“These are the songs. The songs are on here (floppy disk).” – Martin Gore
