The band was formed in 1988 by Bob Stanley and Pete Wiggs, former music journalists who serve as keyboardists and producers. They werejoined by guitarist/keyboardist Ian Catt, and vocalist Sarah Cracknell, thus forming the final line-up.

Their first three albums, Foxbase Alpha, So Tough and Tiger Bay focused on their "sixties pop meets nineties dance" aesthetic, earningcritical acclaim and commercial success. Starting with Good Humor, they moved towards a more acoustic and trip-hop influenced soundsimilar to Air.
