Biography

A Scottish electro-pop/twee band popular in the 1990s (stylised bis). They formed in 1994 with their name derived from The The's "Twilight of a Champion" lyric, "Black Iron Skyline". Members included: Steven Clark (vocals, guitar - aka Sci-fi Steven), John Clark (vocals, bass - aka John Disco) and Amanda MacKinnon (vocals, keyboards - aka Manda Rin). In 1995, they became the first unsigned band to appear on BBC's Top of the Pops. Their 1998 single "Eurodisco" was successful and its follow-up single "Detour" became their first USA hit. They toured extensively, including with Garbage, Foo Fighters, Luscious Jackson, Pavement and Gary Numan.

They were so popular in Japan that they sold 100,000 of the album The New Transistor Heroes in 2 weeks and played 3 nights in a row at a 900 capacity venue in Tokyo as part of the tour.

"Eurodisco", a single from the band's second album Social Dancing, reached number 37 in the UK singles chart. Shortly after, the band was dropped by Grand Royal in the USA, their publisher Universal in the UK, and they left the Wiiija UK label. Spinart Records in the US and Artful in the UK released their 3rd album Return to Central.
