Soft Cell

Soft Cell

Soft Cell is an English synthesizer duo who came to prominence in the early 1980s and come from Leeds, England. They consisted of Marc Almond (vocals) and Dave Ball (synthesizers). They had a huge world-wide hit in 1981 with a cover version of "Tainted Love", a northern soul classic originally sung in 1964 by Gloria Jones. While "Tainted Love" was Soft Cell's only Top 40 hit in the United States, the band had approximately eight Top 40 hits in the UK, including "Bedsitter", "Say Hello, Wave Goodbye", "Torch", and "What?", each of which broke the UK Top 5.
