"The first artist to sign Mute Records was Fad Gadget. And here is his first album. He was a true pioneer on the synthesizer based music that shortly after appeared everywhere! There are many fantastic (and a bit crazy) songs on this album. Songs like "pedestrian", "fireside favourites" and "newsreel" are songs you will remember. When it comes to the tracks that you will ALWAYS return to, it had to be the sexual " coitus interruptus" and "Insecticide". When you play these songs you will laugh and shake your head and say: This dude is BRILLIANT CRAZY!....and then you play them again. :-) (you were one of my childhood heroes mr.tovey (aka fad gadget), you gave me many fine moments, and a start to explore electronic music.Thank you and Rest In Peace)"
