I always wondered what America thought of this weird trio from Belgium. The sounds and the image probably complimented the burgeoning electro/EBM/Industrial scene that was being spear headed by the Wax Trax! label from Chicago. The band spawned many imitators as they tapped into the American Alternative Electro scene. In Depeche Mode’s “101” concert documentary Front 242 T-shirts could be spotted.
The words at the start “I know you… and you sure know me!” are from Videodrome, a film about mind control though media.
Tough, hypnotic beats, yells and chants over 3 slightly different mixes.
