Visage Blitz 79

Members of Visage outside the Blitz Club in London in 1979

Visage were originally a new wave 'supergroup' formed in 1978 by vocalist Steve Strange and drummer Rusty Egan (formerly of Rich Kids) together with Midge Ure (Rich Kids, Ultravox), Billy Currie (Ultravox), Adamson, McGeogh, Formula (Magazine) and Chris Payne (from Gary Numan's band). The group recorded several demos and released a debut single 'Tar' on Martin Rushent's Genetic Records, by which time the 'New Romantic' movement, spearheaded by Strange and Visage, had taken off. The group released their debut eponymous album in late 1980, preceded by the iconic hit single Fade to Grey, written by Currie, Payne and Ure.

Steve Strange died in February 2015.
