The Grid formed in the late '80s when Richard Norris -- who collaborated with Psychic TV on the group's acid-house album Jack the Tab -- hooked up with ex-Soft Cell member Dave Ball. The duo recorded the single "Floatation" in 1990 with vocalist Sacha; the debut album Electric Head appeared the same year, fusing the best of late-'80s house and techno into a poppy yet danceable mix. Follow-up 456 (1992) included contributions from Sun Ra and Robert Fripp, among others. Ball & Norris rode the crest of their British hit single "Swamp Thing" for the 1994 album Evolver, their slickest and most focused yet. Music for Dancing followed one year later. ~ John Bush
