Biography

Formed in Brooklyn by Nigerian born Tunde Adebimpe and David Sitek, TV On The Radio are an experimental multi-media project mixing electronic ideas with visual art; much admired by occasional collaborators such as David Bowie and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. A painter and film school graduate, Adebimpe made an animated video for the Yeah Yeah Yeahs single Pin. Sitek produced the Yeah Yeah Yeahs' Fever To Tell album and they decided to pitch their ideas together and self-release their debut record OK Calculator (a skit on Radiohead's OK Computer) in 2002, which merged electronica and hip-hop. With guitarist/singer Kyp Malone joining the line-up, the more avant-garde Desperate Youth, Blood Thirsty Babes won critical acclaim, resulting in the prestigious Shortlist Music Prize of 2004. The band continued to challenge musical ideas with Return To Cookie Mountain (2006) and Dear Science (2008), but with Kyp Malone releasing a solo album under the name Rain Machine and David Sitek recording a solo album as Maximum Balloon, they announced in 2010 they'd be taking a break.
