Ladyshave - Fad Gadget - Live in Lyon, 1981 (Cassette)

Sadly the man behind the name Fad Gadget Frank Tovey died back in at the age of 45 Heart Attack … He was working on a new album at the time of his death… R. S it made it to No 2 Dance Charts. Lazily, I do use the short hand term c86 as a descriptor which I understand to be wholly subjective.

C86 is significantly snappier than the soon-to-foisted-upon-us newer movement The Scene That Celebrates Itself — which was never really going to catch on and thankfully never did.

Almost all are either "soundboard" recordings taken directly from the mixing desk used at the gig on the night or old FM radio recordings. A few gigs, if they are of special historical importance, make an appearance even if they were recorded from the audience - these can also be made to sound better than ever.

One of the earliest people to really pick up on this change was Roy Carr , then a journalist with the NME. You got the feeling that something was happening, like the ground was shifting slightly. At the time, the NME was fond of putting together and releasing mix-tapes covering any number of different genres.

It might sound quaint today in an age of unfettered access to anything ever recorded, but in those far off days a simple mix-tape could be one of the best chances for its readers to get hold of something new. So a few of us got together and started picking the bands we wanted to go on the tape. The tape did well, selling thousands of copies via mail order and eventually being released as an LP a year later by Rough Trade. According to Sean Dickson , former lead singer with The Soup Dragons , this success acted as something of a catalyst — not just on the 22 bands featured, but on the scene as a whole.

I think what you can say is that it made what was underground suddenly over-ground. It took all these little scenes from around the country and pushed them together into the limelight — scenes like mine in Glasgow, where bands like us and Primal Scream had been knocking around for a few years; going to the same gigs, enjoying the same taste in music and sharing a similar attitude in the way that we made music.

Frank then went to Charing Cross Hospital. The Mudd Club, New York: Frank hung from the lighting rigging, beating his chest and making animal noises with the microphone jammed firmly into his mouth.

I believe the photo below was taken after Frank re-emerged from the crawl space of the lowered ceiling. I hope the venue had decent insurance.

The single however is a different mix from the album version. It was anticipated that with an NME interview with Paul Morley, having his photo taken by Anton Corbijn , and being the subject of a whole page feature and interview in Smash Hits, that King of the Flies might be the break-through hit.

It was during this time that news filtered through that Frank was working on a collaboration with Boyd Rice. I have noted it here as version I for clarity however it is listed plainly as Life on the Line. It did chart at number 10 in the independent charts. Versions I to IV were released as b-sides and album tracks. This is one of the tracks on which you can distinctly hear Alison Moyet.
