Biografia

Living in squats in an unprepossessing area of London, the Thompson Twins had unpromising beginnings. Unemployed and broke, Tom Bailey got his hands on some instruments and, helped by a variety of other passing musicians, formed the Thompson Twins, taking the name from the characters of two hapless detectives in the comic strip, Herge's Adventures of Tin Tin. Merging post-punk energy with African rhythms, the group had a fluid personnel, releasing their first album A Product Of... in 1981. Their second album Set, released a year later, was produced by Steve Lillywhite and included the minor hit In The Name of Love, after which the band trimmed down to a three-piece of Bailey, Alannah Currie and Joe Leeway intent on pursuing a more commercial direction. This triggered their most successful period with a series of interesting haircuts and slightly offbeat hits like Lies, We Are Detective and Hold Me Now, and the hugely successful album Into The Gap, which sold over 5 million copies and was one of the biggest-selling records of 1984. Leeway left in 1986 and although Bailey and Currie kept the band going for another seven years, they failed to recapture their earlier success.
