The Homosexuals were an influential British punk band formed in 1972 as Rejects by Bruno Wizard, Anton Hayman, and Jim Welton (who has also gone by the names L. Voag, Amos, and Xentos). Their angular guitars, complex melodies, and experimental leanings distanced them somewhat from the punk rock being created by their contemporaries and has cemented their reputation as a pre-cursor to post-punk. They released very little during their lifetime, and most of what they did release was on small run vinyl on obscure record labels. The members also recorded in various combinations under several different pseudonyms. These "side projects" include Amos & Sara, George Harassment, Sara Goes Pop, and Nancy Sesay & The Melodaires. The only full length LP by band, 1984's The Homosexuals' Record was re-released on CD with additional tracks in 2004 as The Homosexuals' CD. Also released that year was Astral Glamour - a 3-CD set including the band's entire catalgoue, unreleased songs, and work by several of the band's pseudonymous projects. Jim Welton is currently the most active band member, working under the name Xentos in the band Die Trip Computer Die. -From Wikipedia
