Runaway Boys: Bronski Beat

Dave Rimmer, Smash Hits, 21 June 1984

Bronski Beat are young, talented and they've only played a handful of concerts. And suddenly everyone's asking them questions. Questions about their "stance" as a gay group. About what they think of people like Boy George and Frankie Goes to Hollywood. About what it's like when your first single, 'Smalltown Boy', instantly becomes a massive hit.
