Biography

New Zealand-British musician, a keyboard player and singer, one of a trio who call themselves the "Thompson Twins." The singers are backed up by Nile Rodgers on sharp guitar and percussion and front man Tom Bailey on vocals set off by the syncopated harmonies of Currie and Joe Leeway. They are one of the few groups who combine an appealing mix of English pop modernism with solid dance instincts. Currie wears blonde hair in a spiked mohawk and punk costumes. Their work includes "Into the Gap" and "Here's to Future Days." Their peak work was in 1983-84 with commercial success and a No.1 LP in February 1984.

Currie broke with the group due to ongoing conflicts in January 1987. She turned her attention to her personal life, having a baby in April 1988.
