Pet Shop BoysThe Pet Shop Boys are a highly influential UK electronic music act. Founded in the early 1980s, the duo (Neil Tennant, Chris Lowe) had immense commercial success, starting with their first single "West End Girls" in 1985. They are one of the most consistently successful duos in pop music.
Their music's trademark sound is a combination of pure synthesised pop, with sometimes slightly over-the-top instrumentation, contrasting with Tennant's laconic vocals.
The Pet Shop Boys are significant figures in Queer culture for such songs as "West End Girls", their cover of The Village People's "Go West," "Can You Forgive Her?", and "It's A Sin". Neil Tennant came out around the time of their album Very (supposedly his answer to the question, "Are you gay?")
