Biography

The British New Wave trio Fiat Lux notched a handful of hits in the U.K. before vanishing into the musical abyss.

Fiat Lux formed in Yorkshire, England, in 1982 with Steve Wright (vocals), Ian Nelson (sax, keyboards), and Dave Crickmore (guitars, keyboards). They had a slightly popular single named ‘Secrets’, which many people today might recognize without being able to name the band. They also released three other singles and a mini-LP called ‘Hired History’. They enjoyed more success away from the UK touring Europe with the likes of Nik Kershaw, Howard Jones, Blancmange, The Sound and Level 42. A number four chart position was achieved in New Zealand with ‘Secrets’ and ‘Blue Emotion’ was a top ten single in countries in Europe.

    Yeah, I think you're right. The vocals are along the lugubrious semi-goth of Dave Gahan, but I see some of the tunes closer to early Martin Gore-era Depeche than OMD (which is a band I'm not very familiar with).

    I've got the EP on vinyl...no...this is no Depeche sound...a little bit of OMD perhaps...

    As far as I can tell, as of mid-2008, the only Fiat Lux available on CD are the three tracks from the Cocteau Signatures compilation.
