The Cocteau Twins (might I add, one of my all time personal favorites and this song being also being one of my favorites) were established in 1979 by Grangemouth, Scottland residents Robin Guthre and Will Haggie. They didn’t quite become the band they were to become until they met Elizabeth Fraser at a local club, who would become their forever beloved ambiguous and ominous vocalist and lyricist. 1981 was when they decided to officially create music together, being inspired by bands of the time such as The Birthday Party, Sex Pistols, Kate Bush, and Siouxsie and the Banshees. The union of the band was based off of their love of music, so it was fitting that the very name of The Cocteau Twins was taken from a song with the same name by fellow Scotsmen, “Johnny and the Self-Abusers” (Later, the song name was changed to “No Cure” and the band renamed themselves Simple Mind).

Eisenfunk are a Munich-based industrial trio whose 2008 self-titled album proved popular within Germany’s alternative music scene, charting at number two. Originally founded in 2006 as a solo project by singer/producer Michael Mayer (not to be confused with the German techno DJ/producer affiliated with the label Kompakt), Eisenfunk made their recording debut in 2007 with the album Funkferngesteuert on the Danse Macabre sublabel Biohazzard Records. Following this initial release, Mayer recruited Arthur Stauder (electronic drums) and Toni Schulz (keyboards, samples) to join Eisenfunk and proceeded to re-record Funkferngesteuert as a trio, adding a couple new songs for good measure. Released in October 2007 as Eisenfunk, the new album steadily grew in popularity, ultimately climbing to number two on the German alternative albums chart in March 2008. Around this same time, Eisenfunk released the limited-edition EP 300 (2008), comprised primarily of remixes.
Grab some Eisenfunk at iTunes, Amazon, and your favorite online music source and get your Pong on!

Since their beginning in the early 80s (reported as both 1981 & 1983), the band has gone through many ups and downs, variations in the band line up, and included a break-up and rekindling.
