Sneaker Pimps

  • Sneaker Pimps are a British Trip-hop band formed in Hartlepool, England in 1995, although the official IAMX website quotes the official year of foundation as 1989.
  • They took their name from an article the Beastie Boys published in their Grand Royal magazine about a man they hired to track down classic sneakers.
  • After the first album, the band felt that demos for second album (on which Corner provided the guide vocals) better suited his voice, especially in regard to the more raw, personal quality of the lyrics. Combined with the fear of being identified with the fad for trip-hop acts (e.g. Portishead), Dayton was asked to leave the group, and Corner became the singer.
  • Kelli Ali (Dayton) recorded her third solo album 'Rocking Horse' at the beginning of 2008 and will be releasing it through One Little Indian late Autumn 2008. She is quoted as saying this is a very different affair to her two previous solo albums, Tigermouth and Psychic Cat. Rocking Horse was produced by Max Richter.
  • The Sneaker Pimps collaborated with Marilyn Manson for the 1997 single "Long Hard Road Out of Hell".
