IAMX - Chris Corner


CHRIS CORNER gained international recognition with the Sneaker Pimps, a downtempo band from England, and are best known for their album, Becoming X. To this day, "Spin Spin Sugar" is one of my favorite songs.

Chris Corner is a musician. He was a founding member of the Sneaker Pimps in 1995, and is also currently recording under the name of IAMX. As vocalist for The Sneaker Pimps Corner's emotional vocals are credited as a major contributing factor to the band's success. Corner was vocalist for the albums Bloodsport and Splinter, although the band has announced that his vocals will not be used for any upcoming album.

Chris has since left Sneaker Pimps and launched IAMX, which has a darker, electroclash feel. Chris's latest album, Kiss and Swallow, was released by Metropolis Records on June 17, 2008.

Igloo :: I was talking with Dave Heckman of Metropolis Records and he told me he first fell in love with IAMX when he saw one of your shows. I get the impression that you employ a bit of theater when you play out. Can you give us an idea of what a typical IMAX show is like?

Chris Corner :: It's pretty energetic, quite spontaneous. We tend to very much lose ourselves in the moment. I think because of the general feel of the musical direction I've taken with IAMX, which is a bit harder than my previous projects, I wanted to experiment a bit more on stage and to let loose and to really just to go for it and to allow the people in the audience to also lose themselves. There's a lot of sweat. There's a lot of sex. There's a lot of falling around and it's still emotional. It's not a punk way of doing it, which kind of connects to the music a bit more. But I think the main thing is that it's a huge release for everybody in the room.
