Since forming in 1994, bis have continually mutated their initial influences of Synth-pop, Riot Grrrl and DIY Punk into weird and wonderful songs with a natural gift for melodic earworms and a disco heartbeat. Sci-Fi Steven, John Disco and Manda Rin first caught the UK underground’s attention with the “Disco Nation 45” EP in 1995. Its cross-breeding of Huggy Bear, Blur and Devo made it stand out in the dreary death of Britpop, fanzines had new saviours and before long the underground went overground. With the next release, “The Secret Vampire Soundtrack”, suddenly bis were playing ‘Kandy Pop’ on Top of The Pops – as the first unsigned band ever to appear – and riding high in the ‘proper’ charts. Bands, record labels and entire movements seemed to spring up in the aftermath of this generational wake-up call. Whilst bis didn’t quite pull-off the revolution they threatened too, they have still managed to survive the twists and turns of 20 years of Punk Disco.
