|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
