Robert Marlow – The Face of Dorian Gray (1983)

Scroll down to content

Some time after Vince Clarke left Depeche Mode, Marlow approached Vince and “bullied him” into getting studio time at Blackwing Studios with him and Eric Radcliffe. He was offered only one day, and decided to record “The Face of Dorian Gray.” This then led to more studio time, and then a complete single, with b-side and 12″ mixes. It was then that Vince suggested that he try to get record company interest. He ended up getting interest from RCA, but was later decided to be released on Vince’s short lived Reset Records label. The single, however, did not get much radio airplay.
