Pioneers of the New Romantic movement, the synth pop group Visage emerged in 1978 from the London club
Blitz, a neo-glam nightspot which stood in stark contrast to the prevailing punk mentality of the moment.
Spearheading Blitz's ultra-chic clientele were Steve Strange and DJ Rusty Egan, one time drummer with the
Rich Kids. Steve Strange working with Rusty Egan and another Rich Kids alum, guitarist Midge Ure recorded music
that would fit into the sound of the Blitz. In late 1978 they recorded a demo which yielded the first
Visage single, an aptly futuristic cover of Zager & Evans' 'In the Year 2525'
