Tuxedomoon is an experimental avant-garde/post-punk/new wave group formed in San Francisco, California consisting of coremembers Blaine L. Reininger, Steven Brown and Peter Principle.

Formed in 1977 by multi-instrumentalists Reininger and Brown, then two students of electronic music at San Francisco CityCollege, with technical assistance from video artist Tommy Tadlock, Tuxedomoon started playing salons and accompanyingperformances by The Angels of Light, a San Francisco based, radical theater troup. Brown’s connections to local theater gavethe band access to vocalists Gregory Cruikshank, Victoria Lowe, and, most frequently, Winston Tong. The band gained somelevel of recognition in 1978 when they opened for Devo. Michael Belfer, (guitarist), and Paul Zahl, (drummer) joined the band intime to help with the group’s first EP, No Tears. Lowe left prior to the album’s release in 1978. Soon afterward, Tong and Belferleft the group temporarily, and bassist Peter Principle joined the lineup. In 1979, the group signed to The Residents’ RalphRecords, with whom they recorded their next two albums, Half-Mute in 1980 and Desire in 1981, after which the band relocatedto Rotterdam for a small time and moved on to Brussels, believing their sound better fit the electronic scene in Europe.

The band soon created the score for a ballet by Maurice Bejart, which was released in 1982 as Divine. « hide
