Pioneering techno poetry
Gee Mr Tracy were an anarchic blend of the wild poetry of Tom 'Brick' Smith and the irresistible synth-pop tunes of Vince 'Vince' Rogers. Tom rarely knew the words and Vince complemented this by rarely getting the tunes right, a technique pioneered by Testcard F of which he was also a founder member. The audiences loved it.
A cult following soon arose in the mid eighties and radio and TV appearances such as The Tube followed with a stream of singles and two albums. Their later works became deeper and more melodic but no less original.
