Sigue Sigue SputnikSigue Sigue Sputnik are a British new wave band led by former Generation X bassist Tony James. The band achieved moderate fame in 1986, when they achieved 3 UK top 40 hits including the song "Love Missile F1-11" hit the pop charts around the world, helped by its use in the cult-hit movie Ferris Bueller's Day Off.
