A whopping 18 times mentioned. Depeche Mode, on the other hand, only 8 times.
Top 5 non-PSB top 5s to date (out of 47 entries so far):
New Order: 26
Depeche Mode: 12
Erasure: 8
St Etienne: 8
Kraftwerk: 7
Updated numbers above. St Etienne leapfrog Kraftwerk, New Order extend their lead - they are in 55% of our other top 4s.

Maths can be fun*!

*YMMV

In no particular order:

- yes, New Order
- David Ford (no-one will have heard of him probably, not remotely similar to PSB, but I love his song-writing and lyrics)
- The Killers
- The Cure

Honourable mentions: Bowie, The Beatles, Lust for Youth, Joni Mitchell, Rufus Wainwright
Love comes quickly, but is a catastrophe and a bourgeois construct etc.
