Fad Gadget.

These shots were taken in London in 1982. He was an early client if Mute Records, and was criminally under-rated as a performer - he was a brilliant musician. He had Alison Moyet as his backing singer, was a great performer and he used all sorts of props on stage, including shaving cream and horse hair (as fake pubic hair).

It was easy to understand why he was also an early favourite subject of Anton Corbijn, another NME photographer.


  1. Beautiful pictures, thanks a lot Frank Tovey was indeed under-rated.

  2. Thanks for your feedback - he was a terrific subject, and a great musician.
