Country of origin:
Type of music generally:
Most recent release, Bloodsport (2002)
Wikipedia's Sneaker Pimps entry
Poe, Massive Attack, Tricky, a tougher Portishead
The following applies to the Becoming X-era of Sneaker Pimps before vocalist Kelli Dayton left the group.
Recommended first album:
I recommend Becoming X; though their later stuff is good, the female singer left and now the guy sings. (email@example.com)
1996—Cleanup Records; 1997—Virgin Records
Line of Flight and Jim Abbiss
Another trip hop influenced group who transcend the genre. The songs are dark and melodic and accompanied by wonderful vocals. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Remixes by Armand Van Helden, Roni Size, Salt City Orchestra, Tuff Jam
I thought the remix CD was brilliant. (FAMarcus@aol.com)
