Act were a short-lived synthpop group signed to ZTT Records in the late 1980s, and comprising British musician Thomas Leer and German ex-Propaganda vocalist Claudia Brücken. Besides electropop and disco the group were also influenced by psychedelic rock and musical theatre. Lyrically their songs tended to be concerned with decadence and the moral bankruptcy of the world as they saw it, as summed up in the title of their debut single "Snobbery and Decay" — the cover of which featured pictures of Quentin Crisp and Liberace. The band dissolved shortly after the release of their first album Laughter, Tears and Rage in 1988.
