IAMX

When Chris Corner was just a mere 15 years old in the 90s, he started the London-based group Sneaker Pimps. Even though he wrote all the songs on their ground-breaking debut album Becoming X, he opted to release the album with a female vocalist, Kelli Dayton. The resulting landslide of media attention generated a commercial success - the album sold over 1.5 million in the US alone.

Deciding it was time to return to the origins of Sneaker Pimps, Chris took over vocals and released Splinter, the critically-hailed follow-up. Presenting the unique creative direction which has been a trademark of Chris Corner and Sneaker Pimps, the band went on to develop the Home-Taping sessions at London's Contemporary Art Museum, followed by launch of their own label Splinter Recordings who is responsible for discovering acts such as The Servant and Robots In Disguise. While the new Sneaker Pimp album is gestating, Chris has been focusing his energy and reaching his audience through his solo project, IAMX.

Sexual, synthetic, dark and melodic, Chris Corner's IAMX is like a 80s electro glam soundtrack to Svankmajer film - call it a cross between Detroit or Berlin escapades, Prince or Roxy Music's pop, or the electronic universe of Cabaret Voltaire. IAMX erotic vocals accompanied with frantic guitar noise breathes life into the songs.

Whether it's Sneaker Pimps or IAMX, Chris' live performances have always been the highlight of any events, and 2005 was no exception with live shows that took him from US, across the Europe and all the way to Russia.

2006 saw Chris back on tour to promote the original version of The Alternative that was only released in Europe, as well as the soundtrack to the French movie Les Chevaliers Du Ciel directed by Gerard Pires.

2007 opened yet another door for IAMX. With sold-out tours throughout the US and UK, IAMX-mania in the Western World was reaching a feverish pitch with fans and industry alike clamoring over each other to get a piece of him. This brought him to the attention of Metropolis Records who signed IAMX in early 2008 and released the newly reworked versions of The Alternative, and debut album Kiss + Swallow.

Ready to continue with the invasion he began, IAMX released his third album, Kingdom Of Welcome Addiction, in 2009 onto the eagerly awaiting masses. The album builds upon his previous releases with his ideologies and sociological confrontationalism. He deconstructs not only society’s whims and downfalls, but his own as well. The Kingdom Of Welcome Addiction is “a place where the aches and pains of banality can be relieved. Vices, insecurities, stupidities cured. A little bit like Disney world but with lipstick, cynicism and wit.” (Chris Corner, Postwave.gr) A digital single for Think Of England was released in June to coincide with the start of their North American Tour, a second digital single for My Secret Friend was released in January 2010, and May 2010 will see the release of the Dogmatic Infidel Comedown OK remix album.
