    Best remembered for their 1984 hit 'Smalltown Boy'
    Jimmy Somerville's voice is freakishly high-pitched and effeminate.
    Their album 'The Age of Consent' is named in reference to the age of consent for gay sex, with the ages for various nations listed in the liner nots.
    A Donna Summer medley recorded with Marc Almond was branded by one critic as 'the gayest record ever made.'
    Somerville left the group in 1985 to pursue a 'more political' direction.
    Jimmy Somerville is an extreme left-wing political activist.
    After Somerville left the band, they managed another hit with 'Hit That Perfect Beat,' but soon slipped out of the public eye and broke up.
    Their 1995 comeback attempt, 'Rainbow Nation,' flopped.
    All of the members are openly gay.
    'Smalltown Boy' was considered groundbreaking at the time, with lyrics and a video depicting a young gay man outcast by his family and neighbors.
    Their lyrics deal frequently with homophobia, anti-gay politics, and other gay issues.
    'Smalltown Boy' is frequently cited as one of the best videos of the 80's and still makes an impact today.
