Biography

Front 242’s entire history was clearly defined from the start when Daniel B. and Dirk Bergen released the first single "Principles" with the hit song "Body to Body” in 1981. In 1982, Patrick Codenys - keyboards and Jean-Luc De Meyer - vocals join Front 242 and they release the single "U-Men" followed by the first full-length album "Geography". This album already displayed the cold, synthetic brand of dance music that would become Front 242’s signature sound in the following years. In 1983, Dirk Bergen left and Richard 23 joined the band as stage performer and vocalist.

The band created its own label , and the organization which promoted music from Belgium. 1983 saw the release of an EP “Endless Riddance” and the re-release of the first two singles under the title “Two-In-One”. The band developed and quickly reached a specialised audience in Europe.

With the second full-length album “No Comment” in 1984 the term surfaced to describe the synthetic and physically charged qualities of Front 242’s music and sounds recycled from the media and television.
