This eighties synth classic was taken from Visage's self-titled debut album.
This was the follow-up to Visage's first non-album single "Tar" which became a huge hit (making the top ten in the UK and several
other countries, and reaching no.1 in Germany and Switzerland) and was
quickly followed by the release of their self-titled debut album.
Steve Strange entered the limelight again during November 2006 working
as a hairdresser on the BBC's Children In Need show Celebrity
Scissorhands. He won the show (mainly because of his awful haircuts)
and appeared on it again in 2007 and in 2008.
members Steve Strange (previously with The Photons) and Rusty Egan
started out hosting club nights during the late 70s, before creating the
band The Rich Kids. Eventually, Midge Ure would join the line-up, along
with Ultravox keyboard player Billy Currie and three members of the
post-punk band Magazine and re-named themselves Visage.
The band reformed in 2004, but the only original member in the line-up is Steve Strange, although Strange and Egan appeared in Living TV's Pop Goes the Band in 2009, the first time the duo had been together for 20 years.
This was Visage's fifth single release and fourth Top 40 hit, reaching #11 in the UK. It featured a similar ambience to Fade to Grey (it almost has the same melody, too!) and was the first single from the second album The Anvil.
The follow-up single Night Train (also from The Anvil album) reached #12 in the UK singles charts.
