This weekend I was in Washington DC for business, and in-between meetings and stuff I ducked into the Smithsonian American Art Museum, turned on my iPod, and cranked up the remix of "Fait Accompli" by Curve.
As the bass grooves and sexy vocals guided my body around the scupltures and past the paintings, I was wondering what had become of Curve's vocalist Toni Halliday.
As if on cue, I received this press release today:
Toni Halliday of the UK group Curve is back as Chatelaine.
Halliday served as the lead singer and co- writer of Curve from 1990 to 31 January 2005. The group released a number of singles, EPs, and full-length albums; the latter include the following: Doppelgänger (1992), Cuckoo (1993), Come Clean (1998), Open Day at the Hate Fest (2001), Gift (2001), The New Adventures of Curve (2002), and the compilation The Way of Curve (2004).
During and since her time in Curve, Halliday has enjoyed successful collaborative stints with the likes of Leftfield (having notably co-written and performed on "Original" for their Leftism LP), Future Sound of London, Paul Van Dyke, Recoil (Ex-Depeche Mode's Alan Wilder) and most recently, the Killers' Christmas Charity single ("A Great Big Sled").
To see what she has been up to, you can chat with her live April 13th on Arual Bliss Radio at 10PM-Midnight EST. Join us!!
