Soft Cell

Profile:
Soft Cell was an English synthesizer duo during the early 1980s (later re-formed). They consisted of Marc Almond (vocals) and David Ball (synthesizers). Their lyrics often focused on love and romance as well as the darker side of life, with subjects such as kinky sex, transvestism, drugs and murder. They had a huge world-wide hit in 1981 with a cover version of "Tainted Love", a northern soul classic originally sung by Gloria Jones (the wife of Marc Bolan).

Soft Cell 1978-2018 RIP.
They have released some great stuff in the 21st century.
Check out 'Divided soul' and 'Somebody, somewhere, sometime' from 2002.
Their 2002 album 'Beauty without cruelty'.
Finally their 2018 newies including 'Northern lights' and 'Guilty ('Cos I say you are)'.
The farewell concert on 30/09/18 which was their biggest headlining gig by far was superb! I caught it at the cinema

There was NOTHING like Soft Cell! The dramatic delivery, the instumentation, the exciting sound, the minimalist approach (now I see it like that), the maximalist output, the super-taste for the sonic timbres. Nobody in the synth-genre was ever able to create anything similar. Super genuine, extremely powerful, organic. Non-Stop erotic Cabaret -era was the real thing. We would die for getting more and so am I even a bit today. It would be a very good idea to dig out hidden tracks, mixes, studio-outtakes, bits and pieces from them. We'd be thankful to the great Mike Thorne!
