DEPECHE MODE
AT CROCS
*
Depeche Mode from Basildon in Essex are one of the first young bands  to have genuinely started ou tas a groupe of enthusiastic club-goers at an out-of-London venue - in their case,  Crocs,  in Rayleigh.
´ Gary Turner,  who´s now  the DJ at Crocs,  and I used to put on an early ´eletronic disco´  at a pub called The Chiffs.  Then,  about six months ago, we got Crocs, which is a local club, with different nights for different styles of music.
´ Our first gigs were at Crocs so we became the resident groupe.  Now when we play ther, it´s completely packed out, 350 people turn up.´
Gary´s  now opened a second club, Rascals in Southend on a Friday night .  We did the first night,  five weeks ago.  There´s more than enough interest to support two clubs,  in that area; clubs are going to start springing up everywhere
