Depeche Mode, October 6th ,1981 (Speak and Spell LP) by Anton Corbijn


Date anniversaire de ces photos faite par Anton Corbijn en 1981 pour les débuts du groupe avec leur premier album : Speak and Spell, il les retrouvera plus tard et deviendra leur directeur visuel à partir de 1986… jusqu’à aujourd’hui…

Back in 1981 at this same exat date ( October -th 1981) Anton Corbijn made those pictures of Depeche Mode to promote the release of their first and new album Speak and Spell, they were used for NME. They got back in touch in 1986 and became since that time their visual director until now.
