Tõnu Trubetsky (born 24 April 1963), also known as Tony Blackplait, is an Estonian New Romantic/punk rock musician, film and music video director, and anarchist.
Tõnu Trubetsky was born in Tallinn, Estonian SSR as the oldest son of Jaan Trubetsky, who was of Polish and Ruthenian heritage and Leili Rikk. From 1975 to 1980, Tony’s father worked as a driver for the diplomatic mission of the Soviet Union, and Tony as a kid lived some times in London and New York.
