Alan Wilder To Auction Historic Depeche Mode Equipment And Memorabilia.


From auction.recoil.co.uk: Many items are very collectable and hold special value having been used extensively in the recording sessions for classic Depeche Mode and Recoil albums, as well as live performances on the Black Celebration, Music For The Masses, World Violation and Devotional tours.

The additional memorabilia such as Gold & Platinum award discs, leather clothing, rare acetates & test pressings, artwork, posters, tour merchandise and much more, covers Alan's entire musical career, focusing mainly on the years between 1982 & 1995 and making this one of the most exciting career sales to hit the public domain ever. It is also the first time ever that a Depeche Mode memorabilia sale on this scale has appeared.

The sale and live event will be conducted through
Omega, with the official catalogue available online throughout August, prior to the event on the first weekend of September. Soon we will provide direct links to Omega with clear information about how to bid, either on-line, by telephone or at the event itself. For the time being, you can preview everything at this site and discover the history and condition of the items plus read Alan's comments on each piece. We have done our utmost to present you with all the information available, having spent weeks scouring the web, Alan's own archives, photographs and diary entries, plus anything else we could find to make the descriptions as detailed as possible.

All sale items will include a signed letter of authentication from Alan Wilder with details of use and each winning bidder will also receive a free DVD of
Alan Wilder - Collected.
