THE FACE THE VERY BEST OF VISAGE    8TH MARCH 2010     Who could have imagined that a few kids in the 1970s, 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? Some 30 years or so later, ŒElectropop¹ is still one of the most enduring styles around ­ MGMT, La Roux, Lady Gaga, Little Boots, Ladyhawke now top the year end polls just as Visage, Soft Cell, Human League and Depeche Mode did before them.   It is 30 years since Visage released the seminal Fade To Grey. It was a huge dancefloor hit, topping the charts in the UK and Europe and is a track that defines the 1980s, instantly transporting any listener, who was around at that time, back to the days of the New Romantic vanguard whose painted faces and rococo attire adorned the pages of Vogue and The Face.   To celebrate this anniversary, Universal Music are pleased to announce the release of The Very Best of Visage, featuring 2009 remixes of Fade To Grey by Rusty Egan, the original Blitz Club DJ and Michael Gray of The Weekend and Borderline fame, alongside the group¹s complete chart topping hit singles as well as some of the classic and highly sought after dance remixes. The 2009 remixes of Fade To Grey have been promoted at clubs across Christmas and the New Year and have been going down a storm, yet more proof, if it were needed, of the timelessness of the genre.
