The Flaming Mussolinis were a band.

The band formed in 1984, although various members had been in local Teesside (North-east England) bands since the late 1970s. The most notable of these bands was Basczax. They signed to CBS in-house label Portrait Records in 1985 and were tipped for big things. The band released five singles: 'Swallow Glass', 'My Cleopatra', 'Masuka Dan', 'Girl On A Train' and 'A Different Kind Of Love.' They also released two albums: 'Watching The Film' (1986) and 'Charmed Life' (1987). Although compared to bands like U2 at the time, "The Flaming Mussolinis" was a band with a strong pop sensibility which set them apart from such comparisons. They had a near hit with their second single 'My Cleopatra'. The band split in 1988.
