Formed as CNN by ex-All About Eve / Sisters of Mercy guitarist Tim Bricheno, but then changed their name due to pressure from the American news channel. This album -their debut- surprised many with its diversity and quality, with inventive songs ranging from the pop accessibility of “1000 Easy” to heavy industrial guitar based blasts, while the bands live performance continued to be exhilarating. Give it a try!

CNN emerged in 1993 when music hadn’t quite yet died. They had style, they had ideas, they had samples…(“Young Stupid & White” – featuring Bowie & Cult samples
“Looking Forward” – featuring Buddy Holly sample).
They released a couple of singles then were forced to change their name by the american news company CNN, whom they had originally named themselves after. They then changed to XC-NN, and managed to release 2 albums before splitting up.
