Greater Than One


Made up of Michael Wells and Lee Newman. They pioneered an electro-industrial landscape full of samples galore. Early material—most conveniently collected on the Brainwashed reissue of London—was sound sculptures not far removed from Nurse With Wound. The duo soon added industrial and house rhythms to their sound, which earned them the attention of Wax Trax! Records in the US.

Made up of Michael Wells and Lee Newman. They pioneered an electro-industrial landscape full of samples galore. Early material—most conveniently collected on the Brainwashed reissue of London—was sound sculptures not far removed from Nurse With Wound. The duo soon added industrial and house rhythms to their sound, which earned them the attention of Wax Trax! Records in the US. Greater Than One's first Wax Trax! release, the 12" single I Don't Need God b/w Ignorance Is the Agent of Fear, is an exemplary example of their vocal-less, sample heavy industrial sound; the subsequent double-LP London, a reissue of their Dance of the Cowards LP with subsequent 12" singles added, is an eclectic midpoint between their collage and dance styles.

With their followup, 1989's G-Force, Greater Than One had streamlined their style a bit, utilizing rhythms closer to Kraftwerk or New Order. Around this time, they began recording techno under some of their various releases; this informed their final Greater Than One release, the Index EP, which covers an interesting range of sounds (dub, heavy metal) in its six tracks. Disguised under a plethora of aliases, they subsequently recorded many a song under such names as: John + Julie, TD5, Killout Squad, GTO, Tricky Disco and Technohead, among others. Lee Newman passed away in 1995 leaving Michael Wells to continue the legacy under the names S.O.L.O. and Signs Ov Chaos. Read more on Last.fm.
