Earlier this year, we lost one of the 80’s most prominent figures in the New Romantic scene, Steve Strange. Front man of Visage, he was very much a ‘larger than life’ character who was just launching a comeback with a new album. He played Whitby Gothic Weekend in October 2014 to great acclaim so it was a great shock to hear of his passing just a months later. Here is a re-post from ‘Shapersofthe80s’ blog. (Origin: The Guardian) Martin Kemp remembers Steve Strange.
