#002 Vince Clarke: Depeche Mode, Yazoo, Erasure

By Steve Walsh

Vince Clarke is an electronic music pioneer and a founding member of Depeche Mode, Yazoo, and Erasure. In our conversation, we discuss Vince's songwriting and production values. I met Vince in 2004 when I played some radio promo shows with Erasure. Out of the blue, I was asked to co-produce an album which became the Erasure album, Union Street. Named after my Brooklyn studio, Union Street was an acoustic reinterpretation of some of Vince and vocalist, Andy Bell's favorite Erasure songs. Since then we've developed an ongoing friendship and I always look forward to talking music with Mr. Clarke.
