More Band info:

Mark Moore, mastermind of S'Express was born on January 12, 1966, London, England, as a half-Korean. He was arguably the best British interpreter of the late 80s Italo - House phenomenon. After the punk explosion, he made his name on the domestic DJ circuit, notably the Mud Club. He broke through with a series of singles that combined Euro-pop stylings with a hard funk spine: «Theme From S'Express» (UK number 1, April 1988), «Superfly Guy» (UK number 5, July 1988), «Hey Music Lover» (UK number 6, February 1989) and «Mantra For A State Of Mind» (UK number 21, September 1989) among them. S-Express The album debut, «Original Soundtrack» (April 1989, Rhythm King Records LEFTLP 8), was a chart success too with it's 9 weeks run in the UK album charts reaching number 5 there. Afterwards, the chart action dissipated somewhat. «Nothing to lose», ironically one of his strongest singles, stalled at number 32 in September 1990, as dance music upped a gear and discovered hardcore. Moore set up the Splish label, through Rhythm King Records, in the early 90s, opening with Canadian-born singer Tiziana's «Seduce Me» and Yolanda's «Living For The Nite», licensed from Underground Resistance. Former S'Express vocalist Linda Love would go on to record with Word Of Mouth («What It Is [Ain't Losing Control]»). A delayed second album, «Intercourse», failed to revive S'Express' fortunes, despite the gifted vocal presence of Sonique. A sample of John Waters ("Bad taste is what entertainment is all about") preceded a demonstrably shabby, tongue-in-cheek rendition of «Brazil» on the album's best track. Moore would continue to earn a crust as a remixer, however, notably on Malcolm McLaren's «Something's Jumpin' In Your Shirt» (with William Orbit) and Saffron's «Fluffy Toy» (with Peter Lorimer).
