Soft Cell

Soft Cell

Soft Cell was a British synthpop band consisting of vocalist Marc Almond and David Ball. The duo first met in 1977 but their first public gig was not until 1980 at Futurama festival in Leeds.

They amassed 13 UK chart singles, five of them Top 10 hits. Two gold and one platinum-selling albums.
Their 1981 reworking of “Tainted Love” (originally a Northern Soul tune by Gloria Jones) has sold over 1 million copies and won Single Of The Year at 1982’s BRIT Awards. In the US, it spent a then record-breaking 43 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 (and still features among the Top 20 longest runs in American chart history). It was also a No.1 hit in 17 countries, including Australia, Belgium, Canada, Germany and South Africa.
