Funky Friday

Bildergebnis für fad gadget

Back in the mid 80's it was a fine line between New Wave and electronic/industrial music. Not every fraction loved the other. But one all could agree was Frank Tovey aka Fad Gadget. He was one of the first who combined synthesizer sounds with the sound of found objects like bottles. Germany's Einstürzende Neubauten was another one and therefore it is reasoned that they had a guest appearance on Collapsing New People. It is one of the songs that coined the sound of the early 80's. Typing these words I remember one Fad Gadget's performances I was lucky enough to watch them live.
