New Romantic Revealed

And here he is, our New Romantic photographed at Warwick University in 1981 who is in fact the urbane, handsome man-about-town Neale Whittaker, editor of design and decor magazine Belle and a judge on the top rating TV series The Block.
Whittaker says he was 'obsessed' with singer David Sylvian of the band Japan at the time. The Shuttle feels tinged with guilt- we once participated in shameless publicity campaign to name Sylvian as the 'sexiest man on Earth", which was so successful poor David spent years trying to live down the title.
At least Neale was demonstrating excellent taste at an early age!
