Info and Intro

They are an electronic music band, formed out of Coventry, England in 1980 by Martin Bowes and Julia Niblock.

The band emerged from the experimental Post Punk scene of the early '80s.

Along with a number of other groups for example - Throbbing Gristle, Coil, Einstürzende Neubauten, and In the Nursery, added a great deal to the world of Industrial music in the UK.

Still managing to remain active 30 years later, they have been a mainstay of Darkwave and Industrial music, and can be seen as a major influence on many younger bands of these genres while continuously perfecting their own individual and highly distinctive sound.
