Bigod 20

Profile:
German EBM (electronic body music) band formed in 1988. The late-'80s intersection of EBM and acid house proved strong in the career of Bigod 20, which started as an acid house project of longtime EBM producer Andreas 'Talla' Tomalla (Talla 2XLC). Comprising of Talla plus producer Jallokin, the group debuted in 1988 with a pair of club hits, "Body to Body" and "America" -- the latter with additional songwriting credits by Richard 23 and Patrick Codenys of Front 242. Trouble with their label forced a hiatus of over two years, but when the major label Sire Records came calling in 1990, Bigod 20 signed an American deal. The first single under the contract was "The Bog," featuring Front 242 vocalist Jean Luc DeMeyer. Bigod 20 added vocalist Zip Campisi to sing on their debut album Steel Works, released later that year, and so became a trio.

By 1994's Supercute however, Talla 2XLC had left for what could loosely be termed a solo career (recording on his own for Polygram, Suck Me Plasma and Cleopatra) while Bigod 20 embarked on the 90's trend of added guitars (i.e. cold wave/ crossover).
