Tuxedomoon is an experimental
avant-garde post-punk New Wave group formed in San Francisco, California
consisting of core members Blaine L. Reininger, Steven Brown and Peter
Principle, Luc van Lieshout and video artist Bruce Geduldig.
Formed in 1977 by multi-instrumentalists Blaine L. Reininger and Steven
Brown, then two students of electronic music at San Francisco City
College, with technical assistance
from video artist Tommy Tadlock, Tuxedomoon started playing salons and
accompanying performances by The Angels of Light. Brown's connections to local theatre gave the band access to
vocalists Gregory Cruikshank, Victoria Lowe, and, most frequently, Winston Tong.
The band gained some level of recognition in 1978 when they opened for Devo.
Michael Belfer, (guitarist), and Paul Zahl, (drummer) joined the band in time to
help with the group's first EP, No Tears. Lowe left prior to the album's release
in 1978. Soon afterward, Tong and Belfer left the group temporarily, and bassist
Peter Principle joined the lineup. In 1979, the group signed to The Residents'
Ralph Records, with whom they recorded their next two albums, Half Mute in 1980
and Desire in 1981, after which the band relocated to Rotterdam for a short time
and moved on to Brussels, believing their sound better fit the electronic scene
In Brussels, the band soon created the score for a ballet by Maurice Bejart,
released in 1982 as "Divine". In 1983 Reininger left the group in order to
pursue a solo career, and trumpeter Luc Van Lieshout joined. In 1985 Tuxedomoon
had its largest success commercially with the international release of Holy
Wars. Tong left the group again soon after its release. Multi-instrumentalist
Ivan Georgiev was brought in to perform on the group's next two albums, 1986's
Ship of Fools and 1987's You. The band remained inactive through most of the
1990s, although never technically broke up. On July 20, 2004 a reborn
Tuxedomoon, consisting of Steven Brown, Blaine Reininger, Peter Principle, and
Luc Van Lieshout released a new studio album, Cabin in the Sky. They continue to
work and tour together and have since released Bardo Hotel Soundtrack in 2006,
with upcoming projects coinciding with the group's 30th year anniversary, the
Vapour Trails album and the boxed set 7707.
