Fad Gadget - Make Room


On this date in 1981, Fad Gadget released their fourth single, "Make Room". It was backed by "Lady Shave". Neither track appeared on an album. The London, England avant-garde band was actually the late Frank Tovey and a group of musicians he brought in for each project. He had help from Robert Gotobed of Wire and Daniel Miller of Silicon Teens for these tracks. Fad Gadget broke up in 1984. Frank Tovey passed away April 3, 2002.
