Do you? I love them.
The only thing I like about Soft Cell is the story someone told me about Marc Almond having to get his stomach pumped and there being 15 different lots of semen in there.
You didn't believe it but you still felt the need to repeat it. It's homophobia plain and simple. Think before you type next time.
Oh shut up, you tart.
Dale Winton once stole a Mars bar from a shop near his house. That's a lie about a gay person - does that qualify as homophobia too?
Think before you type next time, you hyper-sensitive cretin.
You did not say that Dale shoved the Mars bar up his ass to get it out of the shop did you, if I were to write "Death Disco" likes sleeping with over 80 year old homeless blind men then he kills them and eats their dirty clothes that would be a lie which would be an attack on you as a person, stealing is not like calling someone a sexual deviant with no proof whatsoever. Perspective is a word that needs to be considered here "Death Disco" you octogenarian tramp lover.
Oh, I don't know, this place is bizarre.
Got a creepy oddball talking about vaginal secretions and sex while calling me a virgin on one thread, and another calling me an OAP tramp-f***er in this one. Quite how shagging an 80 year old tramp is worse than shagging a regular one I do not know, but then again I do not care.
I'm off to burn pictures of Paul O'Grady.
Getting back to Kenzies original question, yes, I do like soft Cell, some of their records are quite good/great, but.....One of the WORST gigs I have EVER attended was Soft cell, Royal Court theatre, Liverpool 1984.
They decided to play a "Stripped down" concert, IE:_ NO stage effects at all, just Marc and Dave. not a Sex dwarf to be seen.....
It was appaling to watch/listen to, as the theatre is quite big, and the stage was MASSIVE, and there was only Marc Almond trying desperately, (and embarrasingly) to fill it, as Dave Ball stood completely still behind his synths.......it was an abysmal performance ( in my opinion) and I even got in free that night, so I shouldn't really complain, but.....thats how BAD it was!!!...
Yes! Perfectly said. That is why I love them. Marc's lyrics are among my favorites. He is sarcastic and serious. They just make me smile.I don't just like Soft Cell, I LOVE Soft Cell.
They gave electronic club music a warm, humane touch at a time when it was cool to be cold, and managed to combine intelligence and sleaze in a way that has seldom been equalled. Marc Almond is one of the most criminally underrated lyricists in pop music.
