Bands that use guitars and drum machines?

Looking for some inspiration, ideas…

Maybe I’m getting old and rusty but for the life of me I couldn’t think of anything? I guess Durutti Column does? Probably other stuff from that era? Any deep cuts you have to share?

First thing I thought of (probably on account of listening to little else lately). Their early stuff is amazing

Ah yes, I never got into them… Very cool… Reminds me of This Heat a little bit, too!

Classic from Depeche Mode. Guitarist’s minimalism is a big influence. He never ever plays more than is needed.

Classic. Have you heard of SRSQ? She’s got a Cocteau Twins thing going on in her album, which is amazing in its own right. I really love this one by her:

Prince.
