IAMX isn’t a household name in the States, and in fact I’m incredibly embarrassed to have only recently discovered them.
You remember Sneaker Pimps, right? They had that song … “Six Underground” that was just so damn good. Well, like the man in the box…I feel shame. But you don’t have to, because now you can say you know the London-formed / Berlin-based band, too, without having to lie. (It also might be the most German you’ve heard in a catchy-as-hell song since Nena’s “99 Luftbalons“).
If you’re lucky, you can catch Chris Corner and friends out on a brief North American tour that kicks off tonight in Manhattan. From their recently released record, The Unified Field, this is “I Come With Knives.”
