Novelty Treats: Ricky Gervais was a New Wave Pop Star

Ricky Gervais has, on numerous occasions, gushed to the world of his deep love for David Bowie. This is, of course, one of the reasons why I kind of love him.  What I did not know, however, was that in 1984, Gervais actually took a stab at becoming Bowie-esque prior to getting into comedy.  Gervais was in a New Wave band called Seona Dancing.  No, I have no idea what the hell kind of name that is.  The point is, a prettier, carefully coiffed Gervais once had this single "Bitter Heart" unironically hit #79 on the UK charts.   I don't need to add anything speaks for itself.  [via Salon]
