Andrew Fletcher (Depeche Mode)
Very sad news yesterday of the death of founding member Andrew John Leonard Fletcher (8 July 1961 - 26 May 2022) of influential English electronic band Depeche Mode had passed away from natural causes at the age of 60.
So thought i would post videos for their first three singles in honour of Andrew. Depeche Mode formed in Basildon, Essex, England, in 1980 as Composition Of Sound. When they added singer Dave Gahan, they changed the band name to Depeche Mode. The first time the band played as Depeche Mode was a gig at James Hornsby School in Basildon, May 1980, where Martin Gore and Andrew Fletcher were pupils and the rest is history. The band posted the comment below on their Twitter page.
First Single Dreaming of Me was released on the 20th February 1981 but only reached number 51 on the UK charts and because of this was not included on the debut album Speak And Spell which came out on the 5th October 1981.
Second single New Life was released 13th June 1981 and reached number 11 in the UK charts, the above video shows the band performing the song on UK kids tv show Razzmatazz.
Third single, the band released was Just Can’t Get Enough which hit record stores on the 7th September 1981, it peaked at number 8 in the UK charts, giving them their first top ten hit!!

En medio del mar mi barca se ancla,
la luna se esconde dando paso al sol,
para que él muestre todo su vigor
y mi cuerpo con candor reciba su calor.
al profundo abismo
de universos conexos;
" un ir y venir " de energía
cruzando los áureos campos
de la subjetiva percepción;
abstraída, en su instinto vital
de inagotable fuego imperecedero,
donde la vida del hombre, "arde"
con la impune facilidad...
de una triste madera.
" nunca descritas en la estrofa ",
aunque sentidas muy adentro
en el ser, que se transforma.
causas lejanas anteponiéndose
a doctrinas famélicas y cercanas;
razón pura de todas las razones !!
… sosteniendo el caos de la vida.

Te robaron las ganas de vivir;
las ansias por vivir, te mermaron!
Yo presiento, que a aquello te obligaron,
porque sentí en mi adentros, "tu sentir".
Dicen las lenguas, - que quieres morir !! ;
aquellas mismas que te criticaron;
yo bien sé, "que se equivocaron",
pues sólo yo, sabía de tu sufrir!!
Llamo a tu puerta, - no vas a abrir?;
o prefieres, - que al fin me vaya !! ,
si no es así, "dímelo para no huir".
Oigo como tu corazón estalla,
el latido último de tu existir...
en una solitaria y húmeda playa!
