Fad Gadget - For Whom The Bells Toll


On this date in 1982, Fad Gadget released their eighth single, "For Whom The Bells Toll". It was backed by "Love Parasite". Both tracks appeared on their third album, Under The Flag, though the A side was a re-mixed version of the song. The London, England avant-garde band was actually Frank Tovey and an ever-changing group of musicians. Fad Gadget broke up in 1984. Frank Tovey passed away April 3, 2002.

Damn shame Frank Tovey died.. here's great footage of him in 2002... must be one of his last live performances just as he was taking up the FAD GADGET moniker again. He certainly would have reaped a greater reward of influence as this clip is testament to!!
