Hitting that perfect Beat
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.
Thanks for posting this -- the song was familiar but I can't say I actually knew what it was about. Just listened.
Oh my God I still have this 45, it was one of my 80s faves. RIP, Mr. Steinbachek. You were too young, as are so many passing these days...
Great band. Great song. RIP.
RIP thanks for posting. Wonder if either these guys or New Order new they each had something coming out called "age of consent" at the same time
WTF I was just listening obsessively to Beat Boy last week! Booooooooo! RIP and thanks for all the awesome songs that tore up dancefloors and hearts around the world. <3
