Essentially the vehicle for Frank Tovey, Fad Gadget created experimental New Wave music that touched on the early boundaries of Industrial. Using untypical sounds combined with a stage act that utilized bizarre performance art pieces, the music of Fad Gadget was a creepy journey of dark humor that certainly was not for everyone. Chances are; Frank Tovey would not have had it any other way.
