Depeche Mode’s Violator turns 30 this month – here’s what to expect

Our co-author David McElroy likes to put a bit of pressure on himself 🙂

As we put the finishing touches to the book, David’s Almost Predictable… Almost blog is giving itself over to a month’s worth posts devoted to, well, Violator.

Some of the posts are shorter versions of what will appear in the book, which is terrific as he’s managed to assemble a dizzying array of stories and bits and pieces about the album.
