Los Angeles based STRANGELOVE delivers a career spanning, pitch perfect “best of” concert that transports the listener through time and touches on several key points in Depeche Mode’s illustrious career. Songs from throughout the Depeche canon are lovingly recreated; from favorites on DM’s debut Speak and Spell to the newest fare from Mode’s latest- 2013’s Delta Machine. No detail of STRANGELOVE’s presentation has been overlooked. The visual presentation and in-show costume changes reflect different eras of Depeche Mode’s three decade long story.
These men have a reverence and devotion to Depeche Mode and their body of work that has driven them to recreate every possible detail and bring the “Music To The Masses” in a concert setting that often feels more like a shared communal glorious fan club celebration of yesteryear, and a reliving of youth. Accuracy and authenticity is a hallmark of the group, with the band employing as many authentic vintage synthesizers and archaic samplers as possible.
With over 120 million records sold and a rabid international fan base, Depeche Mode’s career shows no signs of slowing down. Their enormous fan base encompasses all ages and crosses every demographic. STRANGELOVE brings a fun and staggeringly authentic Depeche Mode experience to concertgoers wherever they perform.
The band uses Ziggy as a visual touchstone, but perform all the hits from Bowie's storied career such as very early classics as "Space Oddity" and "When I'm Five" through to selections from his parting gift: Blackstar, released earlier this year.
Replete with costume changes, sonic accuracy and fronted by fellow Londoner, Julian Shah-Tayler, "The Band That Fell To Earth" delivers a crowd-pleasing tribute to remember.
One of the "Top 10 Tribute Bands" in LA Weekly, and billed as "the greatest all-live tribute to David Bowie" in The US, "TBTF2E" have been building on their passionate and heartfelt live show for nearly 3 years, playing mainly in California and wowing the audience with their energetic and raw performances, focused on the live experience of Ziggy in his heyday. Due to popular demand, they have recently brought in 80s and later period Bowie material, even reducing audiences in LA's famous Viper Room to oceans of tears with a performance of "Lazarus" closing the set. Their performances at the "Labyrinth of Jareth" costume ball (the largest costume ball in the US) closed the event both nights to rapture and ovation.
Gig offers are flooding in from the US, Europe and South America, and the band goes from strength to strength with over 50 of Bowie's songs in their repertoire.
Londoner A. Jude (Julian) "is" Bowie, and has performed with both Kevin Armstrong and John Hutchinson from Bowie's band to great acclaim.
"Absolutely Brilliant" – Nick Launay (Producer of Arcade Fire/Kate Bush/Nick Cave)
"Very Impressed" – David J (Bauhaus)
"Really Excellent" – Dave Schulz (Berlin)
