Patrik Fitzgerald


Created in London in 1958, vocalist/songwriter Patrik Fitzgerald ranked being among the most memorable from the so-called “punk poets.” He debuted in 1977 using the EP Protection Pin Stuck in my own Heart, a series merging the outrage of punk having a streak of optimism uncommon for its period and place; certainly, Fitzgerald’s genuine attitude and eccentric appearance — generally, a badge-cluttered blazer, reddish drainpipe trousers and shoes — arranged him squarely aside from his fresh influx brethren, and he was regularly the prospective of substantial derision from elitist viewers. Irrespective, Fitzgerald soldiered on, issuing the Backstreet Males EP in 1978. In 1979 he authorized to Polydor, documenting his 1st LP Grabby Tales using the Buzzcocks’ John Maher. When neither 1982’s Gifts and Telegrams nor 1984’s Drifting Toward Assault captured on with viewers, he produced an overt bet for commercial achievement with 1986’s Tunisia Twist; when it as well failed, Fitzgerald considered waiting furniture at the home of Commons, eventually shifting to Normandy in 1988. 3 years later on he came back to London, starting an acting profession in addition to resurfacing for some club dates.
