The Very Best of Jimmy Somerville – Bronski Beat and the Communards
The liner notes begin with the following comparisons:
The first two singles by Bronski Beat, Jimmy Somerville’s first band, were “Smalltown Boy” and “Why?”. They are the gay equivalent of the Sex Pistols’ “Anarchy in the UK” and “God Save the Queen”.
Remarks published in 2001 and still resonant.
And so for day 2131
