Various - 6122 (To Andrew Fletcher of Depeche Mode) 2CD

In recent years, the music world has lost some of its big stars and musical pioneers. David Bowie, Prince and many others are way too early on this list and May 26th, 2022 fits in there for millions of electronic music fans. On this day Andrew Fletcher, founding member of Depeche Mode, em- barked on his last journey, aged 60. In particular, fans from all over the world, who have supported the band for decades, seem to have remained in shared grief and shock for months. The legitimate question for many is “how is the band going?” and sharing their condolences with the remaining members Martin Gore and Dave Gahan, Andy's friends and especially his wife Grainne and his children Megan and Joe. Several international artists have now come together, directed by Daniel Gierke of the act The Brute: for a musical farewell and a thank you to Andrew "Fletch" Fletcher for over 40 years of music history, and recorded a compilation of various covers of Depeche Mode’s songs. The idea is not new. The difference lies in the top-class cast! Gareth Jones, the producer of three Depeche Mode albums and hits like "People are People” participates as well as Bernhard Lloyd with his current project Atlantic Popes, known as a member of Alphaville, who wrote in the 80s synth-pop anthems like "Big in Japan” and “For- ever Young". Also present is Watershed from South Africa, who rose to global fame with their 2002 smash hit “Indigo Girl”, Bon Harris of Nitzer Ebb, Polly Scattergood, the iconic elec- tronic music pioneers from Italy Kirlian Camera, Carlos Peron, Markus Reinhardt, one half of Wolfsheim, Nico Wieditz of And One, The Brute: themselves and the award-winning UK act Northern Kind, JM Lederman (ex-Weathermen, ex-Fad Gadget)… The aim was to bring together different artists from different decades, old musical companions of "Fletch" as well as known artists across different genres and promising new bands who were influenced by Depeche Mode's sound. From Rock, Electronic, Alternative, Pop, Cross- over to Synthwave, everything is represented. 29 acts from the UK, the US, Germany, France, Belgium, Australia, Sweden, Italy, Hungary, South Africa and Switzerland say “See You” in such a stylish way. The compilation with the name "6122", a number that contains the year Andrew Fletcher was born and the year he died, is not only a perfect Christmas present, but a truly outstanding release for all Depeche Mode fans (and beyond!) worldwide.
