Artist Biography by

Appropriately enough, the London industrial band Greater Than One was made up of two vocalists/keyboardists/programmers, Lee Newman and Michael Wells. Not as heavy as many industrial groups, and with perhaps more of a sense of humor, the duo debuted in the mid-'80s with a series of limited-edition and/or cassette-only releases, including 1987's All the Masters Licked Me; their first widely distributed album was 1988's Dance of the Cowards. This was in turn reissued by Wax Trax! in the U.S. in 1989 as London, a two-disc set featuring six extra tracks. G-Force (1989) and the Index EP (1991) followed before Greater Than One and Wax Trax! parted ways; the duo returned in 1992 with Duty and Trust for ROIR, but have not been heard from since.
