Thompson Twins were an English alternative rock band formed in 1977.[1] The group disbanded in May 1993. They were successful in having three top ten hits in the US.[2] When the group did not move past their Synthpop sound they lost their popularity.[2] Through most of their career there were three members. However none were twins and none were named Thompson.[3]
