That’s short for Vince Clarke and Martin Gore, my 80’s babies, the godfathers of techo/synth pop.  They reunited for an album “Ssss.”  It’s all instrumental, which is puzzling for two of the most singable songwriters of the 80’s and 90’s.  Gore with Depeche Mode (which Clarke was part of) and Clarke with Yaz, and then with Erasure.  The 16 year-old in me is jumping up and down and screaming right now.
