Marsheaux have also hopped up to the top spot on the album chart, holding I Monster and Kevin Pearce down to the rest of the top threee. Depeche Mode catapult back into the top five, and there’s a bit of an Air explosion going on further down outside the top ten.
If you’ve ever spent any time in Germany, you’ll know that they really like Depeche Mode over there. Absolutely love them. There’s a whole raft of bands who sound a lot like them. Which, for a band who the UK still like to regard as purveyors of slightly naff plinky plonky pop, is quite impressive.
