Mainstream journalists and their stupid cliché questions, it’s a recurring problem for every musician.

Some artists play the game along and politely answer with common place cliché answers. Most asked questions in this league of horror: what do you think of your new album, is this the final release of your band, etc..

Dave Gahan decided to play ‘cavalier seul’ announcing the end of Depeche Mode. The ‘journalist’ (everyone can be a journalist these days) of French TV station Canal+ couldn’t believe her ears when Gahan announced that it was game over for Depeche Mode on her talk show Le Grand Journal. Talking of a (non) exclusive! For a few seconds her face was set on disbelief until Gahan told it was a joke.

You can watch the ‘interview’ fragment below.

But first the before (when Dave says he has an exclusive), during (when he announces the end of Depeche Mode) and after (when Gahan says he was just joking).

In related Depeche Mode news, Greek electro pop duo Marsheaux released a transparent vinyl version of their tribute album “A broken frame”, check the details here.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
