Video of the Day | Throwback Thursday Edition: Sneaker Pimps

Share this post

Sneaker Pimps were one of the more delightful one-hit wonders of the 90s, throwing down a sensuous, remix-ready track in “Six Underground” that teased and tickled the masses, likely leading to a few babies along the way. The Brits combined breathy vocals with muted ambiance and the sensibilities of trip-hop, forging one of the more memorable singles of their era. And then they fired the breathy chanteuse…and then they faded far enough into obscurity that few realized it when they disbanded. There’s a life lesson in there (somewhere) for bands (everywhere).

Which isn’t to say that life doesn’t go on; Sneaker Pimps’ creative force, Chris Corner, formed a London/Berlin-based project called IAMX and will be playing New York’s venerable Irving Plaza tomorrow night.

Behrnsie has a love for music that dare not speak its name. He attends many shows and can often be found counting out the beats for no discernible reason. He played alto saxophone in his middle school jazz band, where he was best known for infuriating his instructor when it was revealed that he played everything by ear, and could not in fact read music. He takes great pride that this is the same talent/affliction that got Tori Amos kicked out of the Peabody Academy. He does not live in his parents’ basement….except during the holidays.
