Steve Bronski Death – Cause of Death: Bronski beat co-founder dies aged 61.

Co-founder and keyboardist of British pop trio Bronski Beat, Steve Bronski has passed away. His cause of death was not disclosed.

“Sad to hear Steve Bronski has died. He was a talented and a very melodic man,” Jimmy Somerville tweeted. “Working with him on songs and the one song that changed our lives and touched so many other lives, was a fun and exciting time. Thanks for the melody Steve. Jimmy x”

Bronski formed the band togetger with Jimmy Somerville and Larry Steinbachek in 1983 after appearing in a documentary made for an LGBTQ arts festival.

Bronski Beat were a British synthpop trio which achieved success in the mid-1980s, particularly with the 1984 chart hit “Smalltown Boy”, from their debut album The Age of Consent. “Smalltown Boy” was their only US Billboard Hot 100 single. All members of the band were openly gay and their songs reflected this, often containing political commentary on gay-related issues.

Somerville left Bronski Beat in 1985, and went on to have success as lead singer of the Communards and as a solo artist. He was replaced by vocalist John Foster, with whom the band continued to have hits in the UK and Europe through 1986. Foster left Bronski Beat after their second album, and the band used a series of vocalists before dissolving in 1995.
