DEPECHE MODE’S ALAN WILDER& PAUL KENDALL PLAY TORONTO’S OPERA HOUSE
Here’s one for techno geeks, synth freaks and folks deep into the Eighties revival. Last time we looked, period veterans Depeche Mode were still out there on the tour bus somewhere but this hasn't stopped a former member Alan Wilder from getting his pale ass outa the studio and back on the road.
Nostalgia aside, this pairing does have its musical attractions as Paul Kendall is a towering figure in the UK ambient/experimental electro scene, even fronting his own label, The Parallel Series, solely to bring deep electornica to the people. Just watching Wilder try to keep up with the man known variously as PK and Piquet could be worth the coin you drop. It all comes down at Toronto’s The Opera House Oct.27.
