Probably everything on SXT is an influence to them in some way or another, but yeah, they actually have:- The meeting between these two Scotsmen, Marcus Eoin, 24, and Michael Sandison, two years his elder, dates as far back as their school-years.
"We started in the late 80s playing together in a guitar band but using a technological environment like samplers or synths, in the same way as Killing Joke, Nitzer Ebb or My Bloody Valentine."Have you ever worked with a guitar in the studio before?Mike:
" Actually, just before recording "Twoism" was our turning point. Until then, the whole album was a lot of guitar. Between 1994 and 1995, the year of pr was probably 10 months trying to make something like this, influenced by music like Killing Joke. Very dark guy. After that, I ran into a big break with that kind of thing, and I became really smutless, and I decided to do something intuitively and intuitively. I really wanted to do simple electronic music and minimal music. And I tried to make it as empty and relaxed as possible, and the result was "Twoism"."
