The Unmistakeable Sound of Independence since 1978 | Call to order: +44 (0)20 8996 3120
Released 16th February 2009. The first reissue of this seminal 1984 album ‘Beat Boy’, the third studio album recorded by the pioneers of the New Romantic movement, Visage.
This is the first time that the album has been available on CD in the UK. This album saw a change in musical direction with the introduction of new members to replace the departures of Midge Ure and Barry Adamson. The stylistic change saw the band move away from the band’s electronic studio based sound to a more conventional band format. Visage were formed as supergroup of their day, formed by Steve Strange and ex-Rich Kid Rusty Egan, they recruited Billy Currie and Midge Ure from Ultravox, Dave Formula and Barry Adamson from Magazine and John McGeogh from Siouxsie & The Banshees. Members came and went but the band’s core remained as Strange and Egan.
This CD reissue features 4 bonus tracks not included on the original 8 track release. These include extended mixes of the two singles taken from the album, ‘Beat Boy’ and ‘Love Glove.
