Martin Collaborates with Client
June 15th, 2004
When Fletch was visiting Martin in March, he played Martin some Client demos. Martin particularly liked a track called "Overdrive", and ended up singing some backing vocals on it. Fletch was particularly struck by how well Martin' voice went with Sarah's. "Overdrive" will feature on Client's next album, entitled "City", due for release on the 6th of September.
Look for sound samples closed to the release date.

FCC Crackdown
March 31st, 2004 (updated April 1st, 2004)
Due to some people not taking the time to read the text under this "news" feature, we will stress again that this was an APRIL FOOLS DAY prank.
Due to the recent breast-baring incident by Janet Jackson, and Bono's use of a vulgarity on the CBS network, the FCC have now gone to the next step in securing the airwaves from indecent material. The FCC have now started a serious retroactive crackdown on indecent lyrics. Unfortunately, Depeche Mode are one of the first bands to be victims of this. A number of tunes, including fan favorites such as "Personal Jesus", "Sea Of Sin" and "I Want You Now" (all written by Martin L. Gore) have effectively been banned from U.S. airwaves.
Martin could not be reached for comment. When we have more details on this, we will spread the news.
April 1st update: APRIL FOOLS! The story above is a joke. Thanks to all the fans (and radio stations) for their emails regarding this prank.
