Front 242, one of the most important components of the European Electronic Body Music (EBM) was formed in 1981 in Brussels, Belgium, with Daniel Bressanutti, Patrick Codenys, Jean-Luc De Meyer, and Richard 23. Since their formation, Front 242 have released more than a dozen different studio and live albums, as well as several remix compilations . "Official Version" (1986), "Front By Front" (1988), and "Tyranny For You" (1991) are among their best proper studio albums to date. The band spent most of the mid-to-late 90's in hiatus, but quite recently there has been a resurrection of the most of the original lineup, as well as a pair of new releases. Other vintage electro-industrial artists of the same era which are essential enough to be noted are "My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult", and "A Split Second", both also from Belgium. Let me finish by noting that for those of you still in the discovery phase, Official Version and Front By Front are the best place to start jumping on the bandwagon.
