Seona Dancing (1982-1984)
During his senior year at University College London, Gervais and friend Bill Macrae formed the New Wave pop duo Seona Dancing. Essentially a poor man's Pet Shop Boys, a lithe Gervais crooned the group's two singles "More To Lose" and "Bitter Heart" in what was his first experience as a public performer. After limited success, the group broke up in 1984. Its humiliating legacy, however, lives on.
