Coachella 2006 Rumors

COACHELLA is right around the corner and it's that time of the year where the rumors start flying before the official line-up is announced. DEPECHE MODE has already confirmed their appearance and a SMASHING PUMPKINS reunion is also possible. Recently I received an image of a fake lineup that people are passing around as the real thing. While that looks like a good list, I prefer the line up with Creed and Boyz II Men headlining. :)

Depeche Mode to Headline Coachella 2006

Sources are confirming today that DEPECHE MODE have been confirmed to headline the first night of the 2006 Coachella Music & Arts Festival, to be held as always in Indio, CA this spring. More artists are expected to be announced as the festival draws closer.

Counterfeit Gore, Take 2

April 29 the US will get a new record from Martin Gore (Depeche Mode) on Mute/Reprise. The new album, Counterfeit is the second in Martin's series of cover albums (the first being released in 1989). This album will feature re- worked tunes by Iggy Pop, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, David Essex, Lou Reed, John Lennon and more.

"Without some of the artists I've covered here, I wouldn't be writing the way I do. They have all affected me at some point, especially when I was younger." Martin goes on to say that he has created this album from a fan's perspective because he has a deep personal connection to all of the songs he's covered.

Excited In Paris

Titled "One Night In Paris - The Exciter Tour 2001", the broadcast will include footage from the tour recorded at The Palais Omnisports de Paris Bercy. Shot by longtime partner in crime Anton Corbijn, who received a Grammy nomination for 1994's Devotional concert film. It is set to play between now and April 9th.
