If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, Human Drama took that concept to an even higher level with its third album. Not merely was Pin-Ups a covers album, like David Bowie's own Pin-Ups collection from 1973, but everything about the artwork and design - from front cover photo to liner notes to back cover concert and studio snapshots - totally and thoroughly clones Bowie's effort! Certainly Indovina isn't hiding his homage at all, and unsurprisingly two of Bowie's earliest songs, "After All" and "Letter to Hermione," get the treatment here.
Pinups is an album by Human Drama.

Human Drama contributed a song, "Wave of Darkness," to the 1987 collection Scream: The Compilation, which led to a major label deal shortly thereafter with RCA. 1989 saw the release of a taster EP, Hopes Prayers Dreams Heart Soul Mind Love Life Death, and later that year a full album, Feel, both products of recording sessions in Wales and both accomplished enough but rather strident and overbearing. Indovina concluded after release that RCA wasn't doing enough in terms of promotion, making a leap to the small but worthy Triple X label, where he has stayed ever since.
