NVMP: Back in February of this year, you appeared as a special guest with Depeche Mode, performing a song with Martin Gore at Royal Albert Hall. Now, Martin Gore is guest DJing at a Recoil after-party. How did this come about? Has it opened up the possibility of a renewed professional relationship?
Alan Wilder: Martin and I enjoyed a good chat on the Albert Hall day, and he was in impressive shape having been on the wagon for about 3-4 years. He seemed like a completely different person – much more confident and outgoing. I liked the new Martin, so I just e-mailed him and asked if he would be interested in doing a spot, since he lives in that part of the world and I heard that he enjoys DJ-ing occasionally. It doesn’t imply any further work together, it’s just something fun for everyone attending hopefully.
