Dave Berry is a British pop singer and former teen idol of the 1960s. He is best known for the original versions of Ray Davies' "This Strange Effect". He had an unusual ambition for a pop performer trying to make a name for himself - to appear on TV completely hidden by a prop. In his own words, to "not appear, to stay behind something and not come out". He often hid behind the upturned collar of his leather jacket, or wrapped himself around, and effectively behind, the microphone lead. His stage act, drawing largely on Elvis Presley and Gene Vincent, provided an inspiration for Alvin Stardust. Such was his enigmatic and unconventional presence that several punk rock acts, such as the Sex Pistols, acknowledged him as an inspiration. The Netherlands and Belgium are countries where he still enjoys celebrity status, having received an award from Radio Veronica, Netherlands, for their best selling pop single of all time. B. J. Thomas's sentimental "Mama". For his recordings, Berry used sessions guitarists Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones, Big Jim Sullivan and Drummer Bobby Graham extensively.
The Geoff Stephens penned song, "The Crying Game", brought Berry's voice to his biggest international audience ever in 1992, when it was used as the theme song for one of that year's most successful films - Neil Jordan's The Crying Game. In the final quarter of 2010, "Little Things" was used in an advertisement campaign on British television by Andrex toilet paper. Berry also regained some recognition when he was the surprise hit of the annual Alexis Korner Tribute in 1995. In 1998 "This Strange Effect" was covered by the Belgian band, Hooverphonic.
