Bronski Beat

Bronski Beat was a popular British synth pop trio of the 1980s. Their music is characterized by Jimmy Somerville's soulful counter-tenor voice and quirky synthesizer accompaniment. In 1985 Somerville quit the band, stating he wanted a career which was "more political". He went on to form The Communards with Richard Coles.
