Like a slanted, slightly evil carnival creeping through town

"If you have never heard of Fad Gadget, I feel for you. You are missing out on something very special. I must warn you though
Fad Gadget is not for the musical novice. Although not the initial release, Incontinent still creates an atmosphere unlike any band before or after them. Bands like Sex Gang Children, Sisters of Mercy (who could never pull it off) owe a lot to Mr. Tovey and pre-Depeche Mode Daniel Miller. The haunting piano riff from 'Saturday Night Special' is worth the price of admission alone. I used to listen to this on headphones back in '86 over and over and over and....well you get the idea. I still get the image of a circus carnival whereas H.P. Lovecraft has taken over ringmaster duties from P.T. Barnum. So....buy your ticket....get a good seat and pay homage to the King of the Flies. R.I.P."
