CD Reviews

Frank tovey of fad gadget, never found his audience
REUBEN THAKER | AZ | 12/27/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Tovey was a one man band as fad gadget making quirky electronic music in the early 80s, occasionally making it onto MTV. In the late 80s/90s he made traditional music, real traditional. Like with aboriginal and country/acoustic instruments. The songs on here are excellent, with sharp songwriting. His writing got better after his earlier work. I heard this as a college DJ when it came out. He died about 2-3 years ago, remembered for electronica contributions more than this, a better period of work."
