Steve Strange, born Steven John Harrington, is a British pop icon. He is best remembered as an influential party promoter and as the frontman for the band Visage which he formed with Midge Ure. When their song "Fade to Grey" hit the UK Singles Chart in 1981 it began an imminent commercial breakthrough for electronic music and the whole New Romantic movement.

Strange is often referred to as the "Ultimate New Romantic," as his influence on the British club scene of the early 1980s and on synthesized music can still be seen today.
