I can’t tell if this is weird or awesome, but I think it’s actually both. Dad Dicken Schrader, his daughter Milah and son Korben have been hard at work covering Depeche Mode songs of all things, including “Black Celebration,” “Everything Counts,” “Shake the Disease,” and one you might actually remember even if you’re not a fan, “Strangelove.” Together the family is known as the band DMK, and they have over 10,000 fans on their Facebook page. Dicken says Depeche Mode is his “all-time favorite band” and that his kids “really get into the melodies and love trying to emulate them on our keyboard.” The family, based in Bogota, Colombia, plan to do covers of ”Just Can’t Get Enough,” “But Not Tonight,” “Enjoy The Silence” and “The Meaning Of Love.” I certainly spent a segment of my teen years listening to DM, including one evening in particular when I – como se dice? – became a woman while listening to “Somebody” on repeat. I swear we played it at least twice.
Here’s DMK doing “Strangelove” using keyboard, coffee can and kid instruments. Let me know what you think!
