小简介
在新浪漫运动中,合成器流行乐(Syn-pop)是相当重要的一个分支。Visage是这一流派的奠基者,经过Ultravox、Soft Cell、Yazoo等乐队的完善,在Depeche Mode 乐队手中集大成。Visage的前身是一支朋克乐队,改玩合成器流行乐后被老同行嘲笑为"孔雀朋克",意为华而不实。但在20年后再看Visage的选择,人们会觉得他们没错。乐队灵魂Steve Strange的最出色之处在于使Kraftwerk的音乐除去了机械和呆板,却突然美丽动人起来。

Pioneers of the New Romantic movement, the synth-pop group Visage emerged in 1978 from the London club Billys, a neo-glam nightspot which stood in stark contrast to the prevailing punk mentality of the moment. Spearheading Billys ultra-chic clientele were Steve Strange, a former member of the punk band the Moors Murderers, as well as DJ Rusty Egan, onetime drummer with the Rich Kids; seeking to record music of their own to fit in with the clubs regular playlist (a steady diet of David Bowie, Kraftwerk and Roxy Music), Strange and Egan were offered studio time by another Rich Kids alum, guitarist Midge Ure. In late 1978, this trio recorded a demo which yielded the first Visage single, an aptly-futuristic cover of Zager & Evans In the Year 2525.
Adding Ultravox keyboardist Billy Currie as well as three members of Magazine — bassist Barry Adamson, guitarist John McGeoch, and keyboardist Dave Formula — Visage signed to Radar Records to release Tar in September 1979, followed a year later by their self-titled debut LP. The album yielded a major single in Fade to Grey, an instant club classic which heralded synth-pops imminent commercial breakthrough. The follow-up, Mind of a Toy, was a Top 20 hit, but after releasing 1982s The Anvil, Visage began to disintegrate — first Ure exited to focus all of his energies on fronting Ultravox, then Currie and Formula broke ranks as well. 1984s Beat Boys was the groups final recording, although a remixed Fade to Grey was a UK Top 40 hit during the early 90s.
