  • 1. king-ink, first coice. It's a song written by Nick Cave during The Birthday Party era.

    2. Rudi.

    3. b, I think. Well, I'm not a mad collector, but I really do think Alan is a genius of the electronic music. I've only been a fan since the release of Liquid, but I got everything from him since then.

    4. Liquid. I think, to some extent, that your introduction to an artist is usually your favourite. There are exceptions though.

    5. I'm not what you'd call a DM fan I must admit, but I gotta say Violator is a top album, so I'm gonna go with that.

    6. I don't have one. I find it very hard to choose favourites.

    7. Huh, nope. I'm usually never curious about the artists that I really like. I like to keep them in that kind of aura of mysticism. I know it's stupid, especially in this day and age, but fuck it. I've never read biographies of my favourite musicians. Though I must say, I really enjoy the way he invites us to see his studio and to know details about the software he uses and stuff like that. I find it quite endearing.

    8. Chocolate. The darker the better.

    Briefs, I think it's mostly a cultural thing though.

    9. Can't think of anything, no.

    And your answer would be? 8*)

  • I thought of one...

    On the Shunt mailing list (is that thing still going?) people would often speculate/dream of with whom would Alan collaborate with... so:

    10. Who would you really like Alan to collaborate with?

    My answer would be two people: Blixa Bargeld from Einstürzende Neubauten and David Tibet from Current 93.

    And my answer to 9 is: 'what a hard-on' :P

    great extra questions!

    These last two added questions are fantastic! Keep them coming guys and gals! What do you all think we should do with the extra questions-- should they be appended to the existing ones or should we create a separate thread as a topic of discussion devoted to the question submitted by the new member? My inclination is that when a member submits a new question in their intro, if it's a really REALLY good question, we create a new discussion thread devoted to that question. Or we can always do both (append and discuss further in another thread...) What say ye?? m^..^m

    My "A's" to the "Wilder 'Q+A'"


    1. What is your last.fm username?

    threnody101

    Optional: What would have been your username, had that bugger not snagged it first?
    Unbelievably, the usernames "HaloModeD", "happiest_girl", "miss_feathers", "IYR", "juliengb", and "king-ink" were all taken!!! ..... :P just kidding, lovelies. ;)

    2. What is the name you'd like to go by? (i.e. what all your friends call you?)
    "Our Lady of Alan Wilder" (JOKE!!)
    My family and friends call me Stella.


    3. Which are you: (a) "new fan"; (b) "devotee through-'n-through"; or (c) "a curious toad"?
    b: devotee through & through, but I do have the rare "curious toad" moments I will admit.... :p

    4. What is a favourite Recoil album?
    Well, this answer may change in approximately a month and a half, but for a long while it's been "Unsound Methods".

    5. What is a favourite Depeche Mode album, when Alan was a DM band member?
    Black Celebration (Some Great Reward is a very close 2nd.)

    6. What is a favourite song written by Alan (DM years, pre-DM and/or post-DM)?
    "The Missing Piece" & during dm years: "Two Minute Warning".

    7. Do you have a favourite Alan Wilder-ism (i.e. expression, phrase, quote, or mannerism of his)?

    "Of all the DM albums, Music for the Masses was probably the most self-produced record. With all due respect, Dave Bascombe's role was more as a good engineer rather than producer.
    "A music producer is roughly the equivalent of the film director... They come in different shapes and sizes: those that are very hands-on -- even playing some instruments -- through to those who are completely unmusical, but somehow have a great perspective...
    "Producer: 'I want the Peruvian nose flute sound to disappear into the distance then explode.'
    "Engineer: 'I know, I'll try sending it through delay unit 163457B and then gate it to the bass drum, distorted through a Leslie cabinet using three D72 mics at varying distances.'
    "Producer: 'Don't get clever with me, sonny; if it sounds shit, I'll dump it!'
    "Engineer: 'Whatever you say sir.'
    "Producer: 'That's right. BOY! Make me a cup of tea and go out and buy me a can of tartan paint... Hoover the ceiling, while you're at it!"

    (source: Stripped: The True Story of Depeche Mode, by Johnathan Miller)



    8. Strawberry, Chocolate, or plain Vanilla? (No, it's not a trick question and Yes, you must answer this question or your membership will most definitely be denied!) hehehe
    Chocolate-dipped Strawberries accompanied by lots and lots of vanilla pasty..... >:)

    Followup question: Boxers or Briefs? (this question's optional.)
    I'm sticking to what I wrote in the alan_c_wilder LJ community:
    "Let the lil guy have some room, I says! >;)
    In the buff always worked for me, but if I have to choose: BOXERS"


    9. Anything else you'd like to share/the quirky question(s) we left out?
    To answer two recently suggested questions:

    Who would you really like Alan to collaborate with?
    --o 'Love Spirals Downward' comes to mind immediately.
    Her voice give me chills.
    --o Given Alan's history, collaborating with Martin Gore would be an amazing thing to witness; something with Dave would be cool.
    --o Something with Ms. Moyet or Monica Richards would be interesting to say the least!
    --o A "collaboration" with someone that has passed on might work (i.e. Miguel Migs & Ella Fitzgerald ("Slap That Bass"); Adam Freeland & Sarah Vaugh ("Fever") or Joe Clausell & Nina Simone ("Feeling Good"); but this is hard to pull off most times.)


    What's the most frequent thought you have in mind listening to Recoil?
    This question can best be answered by way of a few of my Last.FM "tags":
    --o iwantyounow
    --o passionate
    --o biteme
    --o primal
    --o noir

    Dave Gahan, please oh please. I know it'll never happen, but a girl can dream! I'd also settle for Emilie Simon... a voice that haunting and clear could have so many wonderful elements drawn out by Alan's ability. And although I'm sure it'd never happen, I think something with Otep Shamaya would be intriguing.

    What's the most frequent thought you have in mind listening to Recoil?

    Sex. Is that so surprising?

    I have knelt at your feet
    I have felt your deceit.
