 Originally a product of Britain's new romantic movement, Depeche Mode went on to become the quintessential electropop band of the 1980s. One of the first acts to establish a musical identity based completely around the use of synthesizers, they began their existence as a bouncy dance-pop outfit but gradually developed a darker, more dramatic sound that ultimately positioned them as one of the most successful alternative bands of their era.

Persian Rugs - 2002 - Mr Tripper

Following the January 1998 demise of their previous outfit, Australian schlock-rock legends the Hoodoo Gurus, singer/guitarist Dave Faulkner, guitarist Brad Shepherd, bassist Rick Grossman and drummer Mark Kingsmill all reunited in the Persian Rugs. Despite a lineup mirroring the final incarnation of their previous outfit, the band insisted it was not just the Hoodoos under another name: drawing inspiration from garage combos both past and present, Faulkner once remarked "The Hoodoo Gurus would cover a Persian Rugs song, but the Persian Rugs couldn't cover a Hoodoo Gurus song." In mid-2002 the group issued its debut EP Mr. Tripper; Grossman soon exited, and ex-Crusaders/Thurston Howlers bassist Kendall James signed on to complete the full-length Turkish DeLight, issued early the following year. In 2004 Grossman returned to action, and the reconstituted group once again claimed the Hoodoo Gurus name, casting the continued viability of the Persian Rugs moniker in serious doubt.
