Not to be confused with the similarly named electronic act, featuring Markus Popp (also of Oval and Microstoria) and the Japanese vocalist Eriko Toyoda.

So were an English duo from London that was active in the late 1980s, that featured Marcus Bell and Mark Long, who were previously members of new wave band The Opposition. The duo were managed by Steve Weltman of Esta Management, and were contemporaries of acts such as Climie Fisher and Waterfront. Signed to Parlophone, they released singles such as "Are You Sure?" (which charted in the UK at #62[1] and U.S. at #41) and "Would You Die for Me", as well as the accompanying album Horseshoe in the Glove, produced by Walter Turbitt.

Marcus Bell died in December 2014.[citation needed]
