Hyde and Smith were members of Underworld on its first incarnation as a rock band, which went on a hiatus after 1990. In 1992, the two grouped with Darren Emerson to record electronic music. In the beginning stages they decided to release their material both as Underworld and as Lemon Interupt, in order to check public reaction to their new artistic direction. Those singles proved to be successful underground dance hits.
However, after the vast success of the single "Mmm Skyscraper I Love You", released under the resurrected Underworld alias, and its accompanying album "dubnobasswithmyheadman", they had decided to focus on one name, and no further material was released under the Lemon Interupt name ever since.
