424. Erasure

Following his departure from Depeche Mode and the disbanding of Yaz, Vince Clarke probably found his best creative outlet when he formed Erasure with Andy Bell. Here, Clarke was able to create his brand of Dance-Pop which bordered on the fringes of the Alternative ideal. After a weak initial effort, Erasure pounded the charts with numerous singles and had a great run in the late 80’s. Erasure is however well behind other dance based acts on the long list for induction, and Clarke’s best shot would be if he would be inducted with Depeche Mode.
