According to published reports today, Larry Steinbachek, keyboardist with the pioneering synth-pop trio Bronski Beat, has died of cancer. He was 56.
The UK band's debut record, the Age of Consent, holds up quite well today. Two singles from that release hit the top 10 in the U.K., "helping to bring LGBT themes to mainstream attention," as NME noted.
The above video is for "Smalltown Boy."
