IAMX is the solo musical project of Chris Corner (ex-Sneaker Pimps). Corner has repeatedly said that IAMX is very different from his actual, real-life personality and is a kind of quasi “act”. Whether an act or not, IAMX’s cabaret-esque and dark electronic sound is primarily concerned with subjects such as outlandish sex, death, narcotic intoxication, bisexuality, decadence, obsession, alienation, and vague allusions to politics.
Consisting of highly dark, erotic, ’80s-influenced electro, his debut album Kiss + Swallow was released in 2004, followed by The Alternative two years later. A live album, Live in Warsaw, is scheduled for release on 14 November 2008, while a third album should also be expected sometime soon.
