Fad Gadget - Saturday Night Special


On this date in 1982, Fad Gadget released their fifth single, "Saturday Night Special". It was backed by "Swallow It Live". The A side was on their second album, Incontinent, but the single was a re-mixed version. The B side, as the name implies, was a live cut (the studio version was also on Incontinent). The London, England avant-garde band was actually the late Frank Tovey and a group of musicians he brought in. Fad Gadget broke up in 1984. Frank Tovey passed away April 3, 2002.
