Collapsing New People - Fad Gadget.

Traces of the punktronic proto-industrial Fad Gadget are scattered underneath the beats of everything you’ve ever heard. As Paul Morley once said, “knowing your Fad Gadget you could hear Daft Punk coming a kilometre away.” Fad Gadget is Kraftwerk meets Kafka, and Trent Reznor owes much to Frank Tovey, the man behind the full-body shaving foam outfit.

Uncomfortable yet catchy. Sincere facetiousness. Ostensibly, the title is a nod to Einstürzende Neubauten, and Collapsing New People provides much scraping and metallic clanking, combined with a hilariously misanthropic viewpoint. What I’m saying is that your continued education in modern music needs a strong grounding in Fad Gadget.

Watch the infamous and wonderful tar-and-feather performance of Collapsing New People here.
