Frank Tovey - Sam Hall
From 1989, the man who was Fad Gadget with a very different offering than his usual. Main reason we're posting this one is the BBC Session version of Fad Gadget classic Ricky's Hand. Done in the acoustic/protest style he'd taken up by this time. We've also got a cover of House of the Rising Sun on here and it's curio to say the least.
I wasn't entirely convinced by this direction when I first heard it, and to be honest I don't think it really clicked for him until '92, when Worried Men In Second Hand Suits came out. Which really is a massively underrated album. But anyway, Frank Tovey - Sam Hall, come for Ricky's Hand, stay one of the pioneers of industrial against industrialiation.
