Independent label: Zed Beat Records was a sub-label of Zomba Records Ltd. It managed two singles. It issued singles in an BBZ and ZED-0 numerical series. Bronski Beat were a popular British synth pop trio who achieved notable success in the mid 1980s, particularly with the 1984 chart hit "Smalltown Boy". All members of the group were openly gay and their songs often contained political commentary on gay related issues. Although many groups in the early to mid 80s had an openly gay image, Bronski Beat were one of the first groups to openly address the gross inequality experienced by gay people in society. At the height of their popularity the band were singer Jimmy Somerville backed by Steve Bronski and Larry Steinbachek, both of whom played keyboards and percussion. Somerville would go on to have success as lead singer of The Communards and as a solo artist. Distributed By BMG Records.
