David Cicero—who goes professionally only by his surname—is an American-born but Scotland-raised singer-songwriter-keyboardist whom the Pet Shop Boys took on as a protégé in 1989. Apparently he attended a PSB concert that year, at which he managed to get a demo tape to their friend and assistant Peter Andreas. He passed it on to Chris and Neil, who liked what they heard.
Cicero proved to be the most prolific artist on the Boys' own short-lived Spaghetti Recordings label. All of his Spaghetti releases appeared during the two-year period 1991-92, although he remained signed to the label until 1996, at which time his professional relationship with PSB was amicably severed. Since then he has maintained a low profile in the music industry with little recorded output.
Aside from simply being mentors and label-owners, the Boys were directly involved in one way or another with each of the following tracks, most of which appear on his 1992 album Future Boy (the cover of which is depicted here).
