Fad Gadget

Francis John (Frank) Tovey

Also known as F Gadget, F. Gadget, F.Gadget, Fat Gadget, Gadget

Short biography of Fad Gadget: Fad Gadget was the first signing on Mute Records with the release of his debut single, the ground breaking 'Back To Nature' in October 1979. His liveshows in the early 80´s were quite wild and unique, often ending with the man injuring himself... Following the album [i]Gag[/i] in 1984, he dropped the stage name and started recording under his real name. The release of [i]The Best of Fad Gadget[/i] in 2001 and him supporting [a=Depeche Mode] on their [i]Exciter Tour[/i] should have helped to revive his career as Fad Gadget, but he died April 3rd 2002 at his home in London of a heart attack at the age of 45.
