Solo Projects
Bolan-esq / The Best Is Yet To Come
Released in 1990 or 91

The A-side is a medley of T-Rex numbers with the B-side a Strange-penned new track. The record had a small metallic promo sticker from the promoter hyping it and to date I have no evidence suggesting that this was ever commercially released.
For the record, it's quite good! The Bolan material is durable fun, but the new B-side was a far cry from the Strange Cruise days; on par with the better material on Beat Boy.

Other Projects

Steve Strange Project

7" Single
In The Year 2525
Released in UK in 1978 on a white label Promo 7"

Datura

CD Single
Fade to Grey - featuring Steve Strange
Fade to Grey - KAMA (4.40)
Trance Records LSD 904
1994

Not sure whether this can be called a project, but the vocals do sound original in terms of not being on any of the versions of the song I know.
Datura seem to be an Italian Disco/Production outfit with guest vocalists.
