The release party for the new album Playing the Angel by Depeche Mode was upon us. The stage was set for the all-star tribute band called 101, consisting of Robert Enforsen from Elegant Machinery, Alexander Hofman from SPOCK (replacing Jarmo Ollila from Mr Jones Machine / Daily Planet), Johan Billing from Diskodiktator and Magnus Johansson from Top Gun (brother of Jay-Jay).

To the pleasure of the crowd, the band mostly performed old-school tracks from debut album Speak & Spell and beyond, such as Work hard, Nodisco and Everything counts. The newest song was Enjoy the silence from 1990!

Despite unfortunate sound quality and technical problems they did a good job on stage, even though Alexander’s rendition of Somebody was a bit unexpected.
