It would be so easy to write off tribute bands as simple copyists, cashing in on another bands talent to make a living. However, anyone at St. Paul’s last night would tell you a different story. There are a few tribute bands which share the energy, passion and talent of the original band, acts like the Australian Pink Floyd, The Musical Box (Genesis) or the Counterfeit Stones are the closest thing to seeing the real thing. Speak and Spell are well and truly in that category and having seen Depeche Mode myself they are as close to the real thing as you can get.
After last January’s sell out gig at St Paul’s and a performance at Glastonbury festival in the summer, SPEAK AND SPELL, Europe’s leading Depeche Mode tribute band, bring their explosive show back to St Paul’s on Saturday the 27th of January.

In the mid 1990’s at the peak of “Britpop”, Dodgy the bottle blonde, midlands band with a bag full of feel good songs such as “Good Enough” and “Staying out for the summer” tried to meld their engagement with social issues, love of the sound of the 60’s and insidious earworms to create the perfect pop moment.
