VISAGE 'The Face: The Very Best Of' [Release Date 08/03/2010]
CD: Who could have imagined that a few kids in the '70s, fed up with punk, would open a nightclub; The Blitz, in Covent Garden, that would pioneer a style of music that would become one of the most resilient and successful styles of the next few decades? As we head out of the '00s and into the '10s, Electropop is still one of the most successful styles around. MGMT, La Roux, Lady Gaga, Little Boots, Ladyhawke, these artists now top the year end polls just as Visage, Soft Cell, Human League and Depeche Mode did before them.
It's 30 years since Visage released the seminal 'Fade to Grey'. It was a huge dance floor hit, topping the charts in the UK and Europe. It's a track that defines the 80s, that instantly transports you back to the time of the Blitz Kids, that New Romantic vanguard whose painted faces and rococo attire littered the pages of Vogue and The Face.
To celebrate this anniversary, Universal Music are pleased to announce the release of this Greatest Hits package featuring 2009 remixes of 'Fade To Grey' by Lee Mortimer and Michael Gray of The Weekend and Borderline fame, alongside their complete chart topping hit singles as well as some of the classic and highly sought after dance remixes.
