Artist Biography Available in: A British dance/new wave band active from 1982 to 1986. Also sometimes referred to as Vicious Pink Phenomena. Their perky melodies and driving dance beat won them many fans in dance clubs, and presaged other Hi-NRG acts such as Dead or Alive and Animotion, but the somewhat minimalist arrangements and provocative lyrics prevented them from achieving mainstream success. Brian Moss played synth and drum machine while Josephine Warden sang. In their song "My Private Tokyo," Josephine sings "I love to listen to YMO" noting one important early influence, but one can also see a desire to build on the work of other electronic pioneers such as Gary Numan and Pete Shelley. In March 1982, they began to describe their music as "techno" apparently the first such use of this term. They mainly released 7" and 12" singles aimed at club play, only releasing their albums "Anything is Playable" and "Vicious Pink" after they had stopped recording.
