Dizzy Mizz Lizzy were a Danish alternative rock band that experienced remarkable success during the mid-'90s before disbanding in 1998 after the release of two multi-platinum albums. Frontman Tim Christensen, a talented singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, subsequently embarked on a fruitful solo career, releasing his debut album in 2000. Founded in 1988 in Copenhagen, Denmark, Dizzy Mizz Lizzy were comprised of Christensen (vocals, guitar; born July 2, 1974), Martin Nielsen (bass guitar; born October 19, 1974), and Søren Friis (drums; born September 26, 1973). Beginning in 1991, the band reached the finals of the Danish Rock Championship for three years straight, winning the talent competition at last in 1993. The bandmembers used the prize money to record a four-track demo CD that garnered airplay on Danish rock radio and secured them a major-label recording contract with EMI. Produced by Nick Foss, the eponymous album Dizzy Mizz Lizzy marked the band's full-length debut. The album was a remarkable success, spawning a long string of hit singles ("Barbedwired Baby's Dream," "Love Is a Loser's Game," "Waterline," "Silverflame," "Glory"), winning four Danish Grammys (including Best Danish Group), and going five-times platinum. While the follow-up album, Rotator (1996), failed to rival the success of its predecessor, it was fairly successful nonetheless, spawning a few singles ("Rotator," "11:07 PM," "When the River Runs Dry"), winning the band additional Grammys, and going two-times platinum. Dizzy Mizz Lizzy disbanded in 1998 and Christensen in turn embarked on a solo career. He made his full-length album debut in 2000 with Secrets on Parade (2000), a Top Ten hit on the Danish albums chart. Successive albums were even more successful, especially his chart-topping second album, Honeyburst (2003). In the midst of Christensen's solo success, EMI released the retrospective compilation The Best of Dizzy Mizz Lizzy (2002).
