Vice Versa was a synthpop band from Sheffield, Yorkshire, England. Vice Versa comprised future members of the successful pop group ABC.

Formed in 1977 by Stephen Singleton, Mark White and David Sydenham, they founded their own label, Neutron Records, releasing the EP Music 4. They had similarities to The Human League, who they supported in 1978.[1] Martin Fry, who wrote the fanzine Modern Drugs, interviewed the band, and shortly afterwards, they asked him to join as synthesizer player, and Fry accepted, and shortly afterwards the band evolved into ABC, with Fry taking over on vocals.[1][2]
