Depeche Mode - Depeche Mode Founders Regroup For Techno Album Project

Depeche Mode founders Martin Gore and Vince Clarke have reunited to record a new album as Vcmg.
The project marks the first time the former bandmates have worked together since 1981.
Gore reveals Clarke came up with the idea and put it to his old pal in an email.
He says, "Out of the blue I got an email from Vince just saying, 'I'm interested in making a techno album. Are you interested in collaborating?'"
Prior to an album release in 2012 the pair will release an EP, titled Spock, next week (30Nov11).
Clarke quit Depeche Mode in the early 1980s and has since enjoyed success as a member of duos Yazoo and Erasure.
