It's 30 years since Vince Clarke walked out on Depeche Mode to form, in turn, Yazoo, the Assembly and Erasure, leaving Martin Gore as DM's driving force.

VCMG, a historic reunion for these two old 1980s futurists, meets the future halfway, often recalling 1990s ravers the Chemical Brothers. It's nevertheless a hugely enjoyable ride, Clarke and Gore's duelling synths creating an entirely instrumental soundtrack to the sci-fi movie playing inside your own head.
