15-Jan-2003Have you already heard of ULTRAFOX, the latest project of Liam and Joe from the Sneaker Pimps working together with the German twins Connie & Claudia ? I think their songs are excellent and if you like stuff like Malaria?s ?Kaltes klares Wasser? you?ll love this.They had their first single out last November called ?Cloakroom Girl?, a gorgeous double pack 7? (which also feat. ?I Get Lifted?, ?Music Is People Are? and ?Horses?). You can order it from www.roughtrade.com who described their music as ?Dark bass heavy German electronic pop. Low sung and funky machine music, like a tasteful Peaches, Ladytron or Lali Puna. ULTRAFOX basically was born while the Pimps were on tour supporting PLACEBO in April 2001, in Amsterdam to be precise and they've been very busy recording since. Expect their first live gigs this year !

Some info about Kelli (pimps' ex-vocalist), since lot of persons ask about her...
In these websites you find some news about her, check it out:
her collaboration with SATOSHI TOMIIE
news from a friend: "I've told here I saw Kelli singing with Marc Almond on the Jools Holland show. I found out tha name of the music they were singing : "Almost Diamonds" from his album "Open All Night"(by Sarah "sspinsugar")
So, you can ckeck on the web for Kelli Ali (her new name) and Marc Almond, some useful links are:
official Marc Almond website
"The album 'Open All Night', released 29 March 1999, is a mature, meditative journey, each track outstanding and definitely Marc Almond today, more relevant than ever. From the voodoo tinged 'Black Kiss' to the jazz inspired 'When Bad People Kiss', through to the haunting 'Midnight Soul' and the lyrically poignant 'Tragedy'. The album draws from the musical sources as rich and diverse as R'n'B, trip hop, Gospel and Latin and evokes all the elements that make Marc Almond a unique talent. The album features two duets - 'Threat of Love' with Siouxsie Sioux and the Creatures: and 'Almost Diamonds' with Kelly Dayton, the exquisitely talented vocalist of the Sneaker Pimps. "
Almost Diamonds (the song they wrote and perform together)
Ok, they coment something about the music too:
By Marc Almond:
The second duet on the album with Kelly from The Sneaker Pimps. A beautiful dark trip hop song about wasted and fake love. Kelly took my lyrics and rewrote them from her angle. Don’t expect the song you heard at the Palladium."
By Angela Hampton:
" Other notable tracks are 'Almost Diamonds' which is another brilliant collaboration, this time between Marc and Kelly Ali of the Sneakerpimps and the title track "Open all Night" which captures the whole mood of the album."
By Uncut Magazine - Chris Roberts:
"The duet with Siouxsie Sioux, "The Threat Of Love", develops arabesque motifs till they take on the hypnotism of a mantra.Even better is the duet with ex-Sneaker Pimp Kelly Ally, "AlmostDiamonds", one of the most romantic theatrical ballads delivered by anybody in years"
By Attitude - Michelle Olley:
"And he’s bagged some fearsome trophies this time around for his growing collection of diva duets - the bittersweet Almost Diamonds with ex-Sneaker Pimp Kelly soothes and sighs along, while The Threat Of Love with Siouxsie is diva-voodoo-stomp in da house - scary and magnificent."
By Q Magazine - Andrew Collins
" Two fabulous duets (with Siouxsie Sioux on the Eastern-tinged Threat Of Love and Sneaker Pimps’ Kelly Dayton on the Portishead-like Almost Diamonds) nudge Almond to the front of the queue for the next Bond theme. Surely. "
By Camden Fly
"There are even collaborations with the likes of Siousxie sioux and Kellie Dayton (of Sneaker Pimps fame) to give it added credibility. Highlights include the aforementioned duets, Threat Of Love and Almost Diamonds, as well as Wrap My Heart In Velvet and recent single Tragedy.It's not just about selected highlights though, the album as a whole makes a very enjoyable listen"

The CD-single contains:

November 97: "6 Underground" is the beautiful song of an Italian TV spot....maybe Pimps will re-release the CD-single.
August 97: Spawn - the album: Marilyn Manson and the vampy trip-hoppers Sneaker Pimps have just done a genuine face-to-face collaboration. Their song is called "Long Hard Road Out Of Hell" and will be on the official soundtrack of the motion picture.
