The True Story of Sique Sigue Sputnik


I guess you could call Sigue Sigue Sputnik the first cyber punk band. The story of the band is way better than the actual band.  What Tony James pulled off was incredible and at a time when bands were getting screwed by the record labels he turned the tables and bent them over.  Tony James was a marketing genius and could sell snow to eskimo's. The band motto was Fleece The World. Can't wait to see this documentary.





This is not an endorsement. lol

  1. Very interesting. Actually saw them a few years ago at the Whitby Goth festival (UK). Bit low key, no media circus these days, but they belted out their hits and were pretty enjoyable. Even if Love Missile F1-11 is the only really memorable one!

  2. Cool. I still have Flaunt It and F1-11 12" both on vinyl. Always wanted the picture disc.

  3. @Arthur I saw them at WGW a few years back, well 6 or 7 I think now! From what I remember they weren't too bad live.

    I'm looking forward to watching this!
