    The 80's one gay electro duo thread

    How come there was this sudden trend in the 80's of having an electropop duo in which one member (usually the singer) was either a batty boy or a dyke.

    ...And who started it, was it Erasure, Eurithmics, Carpenters or the Pet shop Boys?

    I thought all the members of Erasure and the Pet Shop Boys were gay. Thats certainly the impression I got from my Smash Hits magazines.


    The Carpenters????????

    Bollocks, although Andy Bell from Erasure, after years of working on it, eventually suceeded in turning Vince Clarke into a woofta.

    what i read was that Vince Clarke always fancied Andy Bell, but could never get into his pants on account of being a weedy nerd.
