Vince Clarke and Martin Gore team up as VCMG for 'Spock' EP
These days, Vince Clark is the keyboard whizz in Erasure and Martin Gore is the multi-talented wonder-kid of Depeche Mode, but back in the early 80s (on the band's magnificent synth-pop masterpiece Speak & Spell) the two worked together as founding members of the latter group.
Exciting news then as we hear the two are teaming up under the name of VCMG (short and simple, we like) to release their debut EP entitled Spock. We're wondering if it has anything to do with Star Trek...
The EP features the title track and remixes by Regis, DSV1 and Edit-Select. What can we expect? The chunky happy-go-lucky vibes of Erasure or the sinister gloom-pop of Depeche Mode? Rumours suggest it will instead be influenced by the more clinical sounds of modern dance music.
The Spock EP is available to download from iTunes on the 12th December.
