Biography

At least 8 artists by this name:

1) Formed by Propaganda lead singer Claudia Brücken and synthesiser genius Thomas Leer. Act were signed to the iconic ZTT label. However, their intelligent continental pop was out of step with the dumbed -down times of the mid 80s and sales were disappointing.

2) French synth-pop band who released the “Ping-Pong” single. This has recently appeared on the “BIPPP” compilation.

3) Romanian Thrash/Groove metal band signed with Ballance Productions, CD Exact released 2008-12-22.

4) A Jazz trio based in Brooklyn, NY. http://www.bjurecords.com/ACT.html

5) a Japanese doujin hard rock/heavy metal artist

6) A Swedish Progressive Rock/Metal band.

7) A Norwegian rock band, who was known as The Act until they shortened their name to only Act by the time of the release of their only album September Field in 1986.

8) ACT is a collaboration of Ayu (あゆ, IOSYS), Coda (Antp \ COOL&CREAT) and t+pazolite (C.H.S \ HARDCORE TANO*C). ACT means Ayu + Coda + t+pazolite. First mini album called A+C+T was released on M3 2010 (31.10.2010).

A.C.T. is a very popular and well-known modern progressive rock band from Sweden, having released music since 1999. They have evolved into a respectable band that has had more than a decent impact; more impressive, however, it how their songwriting and style gets better with every album, their latest Silence being considered an incredible one.

    Thomas Leer, one half of Act, was responsible for some brillant post-punk eerie synth music...While I agree with Zar_Unity, below, I'm just happy Claudia Brücken was part of a interesting collaboration producing glossy, clever & unpopular pop.

    Hmmm..Claudia Brücken is a major hottie but I think I like her work with Propaganda better than Act. Snobbery and decay is a good song and that prompted me to check Act out..

    The Swedish group is pretty cool. Tags were pretty accurate in DT-meets-Abba.

    Ping Pong is by the French Act who predated the Leer/Brucken Act. Both of them are are class Acts.

    "Ping Pong" is NOT by Act, at least not the Brucken / Leer Act. Shame as it is the only available streaming track. I am so old I have their album on Vinyl!
