Bio:

Pioneers of the New Romantic movement, the synth pop group Visage emerged in 1978 from the London club Blitz, a neo-glam nightspot which stood in stark contrast to the prevailing punk mentality of the moment. Spearheading Blitz's ultra-chic clientele were Steve Strange and DJ Rusty Egan, one time drummer with the Rich Kids. Seeking to record music of their own to fit in with the club's 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 Martin Rushents Genetic 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 pop's imminent commercial breakthrough. The follow-up, "Mind of a Toy," was a Top 20 hit. The follow up was 1982's The Anvil. Midge, John, Dave and Billy left in 1983. Beat Boy was Visages 1984 release, the band now consisting of Steve Strange, Steve Barnacle, Gary Barnacle, Rusty Egan and Andy Barnett. In 2013 Visage returned with the 'Hearts and Knives' album, featuring the line up of Steve Strange and Steve Barnacle with new members Robin Simon (ex Ultravox Guitarist) and Lauren Duvall (on vocals).

2014 saw Logan Sky join on keyboards and the release of Visage 'Orchestral'. Steve Strange sadly died in Egypt on Feb 15th, 2015. The band completed their final album 'Demons To Diamonds' and disbanded shortly afterwards.
