Alan Wilder auctions Depeche Mode memorabilia and more

May 31, 2011 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Ex-Depeche Mode member Alan Wilder will be selling a large selection of musical / studio equipment, vinyl & memorabilia at auction. Many items are very collectable and hold special value having been used extensively in the recording sessions for classic Depeche Mode and Recoil albums, as well as live performances on the “Black Celebration”, “Music For The Masses”, “World Violation” and “Devotional” tours.

The additional memorabilia includes such items as Gold & Platinum award discs, leather clothing, rare acetates & test pressings, artwork, posters, tour merchandise and much more. The set covers Alan’s entire musical career, focusing mainly on the years between 1982 & 1995 and making this one of the most exciting career sales to hit the public domain ever. It is also the first time ever that a Depeche Mode memorabilia sale on this scale has appeared.

Live event, Q&A, …

And faithful to the tradition, the sale will also be a live event conducted through Omega at www.omegaauctions.co.uk with the official catalogue available online throughout August, prior to the event on the first weekend of September. Expect clear information about how to bid, either on-line, by telephone or at the event itself in the next few weeks. For the time being, you can get a sneak preview of everything right now at www.auction.recoil.co.uk and discover the history and condition of the items plus read Alan’s comments on each piece.

A special free pdf catalogue is being produced and a collectable printed hard copy will also be available for a small charge. No price indications will be offered before the sale begins, and therefore any general enquiries about prices won’t receive a response. However, serious offers for items marked outside of the auction (for private sale) will be listened to – the point of contact is auction@recoil.co.uk .

Documentary ‘Alan Wilder – Collected’

The Shunt team have worked closely in conjunction with Omega to bring to you a worldwide, all-inclusive fan-friendly event incorporating a film presentation (see below, “Alan Wilder – Collected”) about the fascinating history of everything in the sale, plus a Q&A session with Alan, DJs, a bar and some other surprises. The live part of the event will be held over the weekend of September 2nd & 3rd in Manchester (venue tbc). There will be a a chance to preview all the sale items on the Friday, with meet & greet opportunities and so on.

“Alan Wilder – Collected” is a 2011 documentary film directed by Martin Vladar about the musician and producer Alan Wilder. The 40 minute documentary came about in connection with a proposed auction scheduled in 2011. Vladar worked personally with Alan Wilder and his estate in the UK: at Wilder’s Sussex residence, he discovered the house was filled with memorabilia spanning 35 years of a career spent in music, most notably during the 80s and 90s covering the musician’s stint with one of the most famous & successful bands of all time, Depeche Mode.

Featured in the doc will be the vast personal collection of Wilder and also a scene where Wilder is reunited with his lost sounds when trying out his old Sampler after 25 years. You’ll also discover which unreleased records he has the only copies of, along with access to the very first acetate pressings of Depeche Mode’s “Violator” and the “101” album recorded at The Rosebowl, Pasadena in 1988.

Stereoklang talks to synthmaster Daniel Myer, with Covenant and Recoil

December 19, 2010 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Covenant performed at this year’s ElectriXmas and we had a quick talk with Daniel Myer about music, gear and iPads. Watch the video below :-)

More stuff on Daniel below:

Architect is joining Recoil for the US tour after some shows together in Europe.

Architect is the creation of German mastermind Daniel Myer. In 1993 he founded the legendary electro-industrial/EBM project Haujobb. Since then he has made a name for himself within the electronic scene and initiated many other projects such as HMB, Newt and Destroid.

Since 2007, he has been a permanent member of the renowned Swedish EBM band Covenant. Created in 1998, Architect and can be easily described as the most fascinating of Daniel’s projects. Focusing primarily on minimal techno, powerfully distorted sequences and razor-sharp breakbeats, he manages to create a unique hybrid of electronica with smooth ambient soundscapes, rendering the results suitable for both listening and dancing.

Alan Wilder’s Recoil – Selected events

March 23, 2010 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

More special guests have been added to the ‘Selected Events’ tour. Our friends Jonny Slut & Fil Jones from Atomizer will be joining us, supporting Recoil in Paris at Le Bus Palladium on April 23rd and in London at O2 Islington Academy on April 25th.

Atomizer helped kickstart the London electro scene back in 2002 with their now legendary club night (and record label) NagNagNag.

Recording with ex-KLF producer Jimmy Cauty in 2003, the duo released their debut single ‘Hooked on Radiation’. The first album ‘Rubber Youth’ was released in 2006, followed by their second album ‘Cult of Europa’ in 2009.

This time we follow Alan during the build up to the event in Berlin, at the famous Meistersaal. Alan walks us around the studio, shows us some notorious spots and introduces a couple of guests.

When Alan Wilder and Paul Kendall presented their “Strange Hour” with Recoil in Berlin’s legendary Hansa Tonstudios on March 19, they invited two very special guests to the stage. Gareth Jones and Daniel Miller, who both played important roles during Depeche Mode’s Hansa sessions in the 80:s performed a long “Construction Time Again” DJ remix set.

At Recoil’s Spanish dates, Douglas McCarthy sang live with Recoil and Client’s Sarah Blackwood will DJ at some future Recoil dates. More guests are to be expected during the remaining dates.
