Bronski Beat were a popular British synthpop trio who achieved success in the mid 1980s, particularly with the 1984 chart hit "Smalltown Boy". At the height of thei. ore .
For Bronski Beat, singing candidly about their sexuality wasn’t a means of provocation, but drawing attention to the still-very-real oppression that pervaded public life under Margaret Thatcher’s government. They valued activism over agitprop, and knew that the personal was political, qualities that made their first two singles their most urgent and enduring. The Age of Consent ends with Somerville’s ultimate act of centering gay desire, with covers of Donna Summer’s Need a Man Blues and I Feel Love. A year earlier, Summer, a born-again Christian, had allegedly denounced her mammoth gay fanbase at a gig in Atlantic City. She would dispute this, but the damage was already done, and gay fans rejected her right back. An unexplained fallout led Somerville to leave the band in early 1985 and form the Communards with Richard Coles.
