About “Documentary Evidence”:
Documentary Evidence is a website devoted to providing reviews and biographies of artists appearing on Mute Records and its various sub-labels since its launch by Daniel Miller in the late seventies. From time to time, they will also publish interviews with Mute artists or key personalities connected to the label, and maybe some non-Mute material too.
Mute was founded by Daniel Miller in 1978, and since then has signed and developed some of the world’s most influential recording artists – including Depeche Mode, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Yazoo, Goldfrapp, Erasure, Moby and Richard Hawley – and become home to a crop of emerging talent and recent signings such as Josh T. Pearson, Big Deal, Beth Jeans Houghton and S.C.U.M.
Whilst maintaining a firmly eclectic roster, from the earliest days of The Normal, Fad Gadget and DAF through to the techno era with artists such as Plastikman / Richie Hawtin and Speedy J via the sublabel novamute, and to the present day with hybrid electronic artists such as Yeasayer and S.C.U.M, the label has always been a champion of electronic music.
Mute also looks after a catalogue of seminal electronic artists such as Can and Cabaret Voltaire.
