The Friday OT: Depeche Mode: It’s No Good

I love the auto-send-up, the chintz, the scrubbed sleaze and the whole pastiche thing of this video.

What I remember most about this song, though, was hearing it the first time. “Depeche Mode? 80’s synthband out of style and all washed up years ago, aren’t they?” was the pre-song thought and “Aha! Wrong again, Otto” mid-song. It matters little if talent comes out of a voice, a guitar, a drumkit or a synth, it’s still talent.
