Late to the thread,,, Fave DM tracks are anything from 101 which was the first I heard of them pwoppa. Aged 13, that album was a huge influence on my musical tastes. I remember being so excited for Violator. I skipped the morning off school to catch the first play of what was Personal Jesus. I still remember hearing the screeeeeech at the start and thinking WTF??!!
From a remix pov - the Lexicon Av mix of Only When.. was huge for me at the time. Still remains one of my favourite tracks. Another which I don't think has been mentioned is the Lexicon Av remix of Behind the Wheel which I first heard at NYE in a tiny club in Dubrovnik whilst smashing the local speed. I recall a low ceiling and a disregard for the off setting on the strobe. Pretty intense stuff!
Top band and massive influencers... Criminal how they're not feted and mobbed in this country imo. I'm gagging for the Greatest Hits headline set at Glastonbury one year.
