Portada del cuarto album del grupo de , más de treinta años después del tercero

Como el tecno de los años ochenta está de moda o plenamente tangencial con los gustos por los viejos sintetizadores, Steve Strange ha vuelto a resucitar a .

Strange, que más que cantante de Visage, era el impulsor para que ese supregrupo de los años ochenta pudiera salir adelante, ha cogido nuevamente las riendas y con un grupo de soñadores de la “new romantics” han hecho el cuarto album “Hearts and Knives” , con un sonido completamente de los años ochenta.

Entre los nuevos reclutas están:

Robin Simon, Ben Woods, Nigel Summers, John Bryan y Rich Mowatt.

Este es el tema ‘Shameless Fashions', al viejo estilo, previo al nuevo album:

Ya no están Howard Devoto, Midge Ure ni siquiera su viejo amigo Rusty Egan, que a veces ejerce en el club Blitz como DJ, pero están animados.

El Blitz, el club de los “new romantics” abrió otra vez sus puertas, muy cerca del Museo británico, como si los años ochenta hubieran resucitado de nuevo.

Estuve hace poco y, aunque ya no es lo mismo, la música que ponen es excepcional, muy elegida de los tiempos de los “new romantics”. Esta es la lista de canciones que ponen casi todas las noches:
