Formed around 1988 by Bernard Sumner (Joy Division, New Order) and Johnny Marr (The Smiths) to follow a more "electronic" style of music, blending synthesizers with guitars and rock with contemporary dance music.
First signed to Factory, later to Parlophone.
Despite huge international commercial success and collaborations with Neil Tennant, the band is on indefinite hiatus since 1999.

Led by New Order's Bernard Sumner and the Smiths' Johnny Marr, Electronic make sure that melodic pop still has a place in the post-rave dance world, the first "supergroup" as labelled by the press.
These alternative rock poster boys make dreamy dance and guitar music that is closer to New Order than the Smiths, but their '80s nostalgia exercises have also interested members of Pet Shop Boys and Kraftwerk. Their lead-off single "Getting Away With it" (1989) remains their defining moment, but they are very slowly building up a respectable body of work. Their second album Raise the Pressure let guitarist Marr shine and is an overall stronger affair than their debut. Their third release continues in this vein and is chock full of sunny, bittersweet music that makes you want to dance and lament a lost love at the same time...summed up nicely as a blend of new order, the smiths and the pet shop boys rolled into one ;)


Electronic have always been underrated. They never got the respect like New Order and The Smiths did, perhaps because it's a side-project; but since they're a "supergroup", expectations on them seem to be higher than usual. Harsh reviews were thrown at them when they made a sub-par album like "Release the Pressure" (though a lot of bands have to sandpaper their eyeballs to make something that good); and when they did make brilliant albums, I don't feel that they were taken seriously. Contrary to TIM, I like Electronic a lot (as much as New Order) largely because of Bernard Sumner's poignant poetry and stylish vocals. And unlike him, "Twisted Tenderness" happens to be my favourite album, where Johnny Marr really shines. Songs like "Like No Other" or "Late At Night" are just insanely exciting. I wouldn't go as far as calling him a guitar virtuoso, but that's something you certainly won't hear in New Order's stuff. It doesn't really have a standout moment like "Getting Away With It", but more enjoyable as an album. It's a shame that with Barney's recent committment to New Order, he won't be likely to make music with Johnny Marr anytime soon.
