Recoil is an award-winning musical project founded by English musician and former Depeche Mode member Alan Wilder. Created as an experimental project whilst Wilder was a member of Depeche Mode, Recoil became Wilder's primary solo venture upon his departure from Depeche Mode in 1995. To date, the project has produced three EPs, three LPs, a compilation album, and an international tour spanning 52 cities across the world.

History

Formation

Wilder had consistently experimented with original musical ideas as the result of his status as the foremost "musician" of Depeche Mode throughout their formative years, but it was not until Mute Records founder Daniel Miller heard some of his audio sketches (recorded on 4-track cassette) that the Recoil solo project began. The summer 1986 release 1 + 2 was to be Recoil's debut EP, comprised of primitive demos completed several years prior.[1]
