And One

And One is a German Synthpop and EBM band. Their members include Steve Naghavi, Chris Ruiz (1989 - 1991 and 2001 to present), Joke Jay (1992 - 2001), Rick Schah (1994 - 2001), Alex Two (1990 - 1993), Annelie Bertilsson (2000) and Gio van Oli (2001 to present).

History

The band formed after Steve Naghavi and Chris Ruiz met in 1989 at a Berlin club. Being fans of early EBM music, Naghavi and Ruiz decided to follow in the footsteps of Synthpop band Depeche Mode by using two keyboards and a beatbox. The duo became a trio with the addition of Alex Two, prior to the release of their debut album, Anguish.

Going into the release of Anguish they had already garnered a decent following through touring and appearances at various parties. With their debut release they took home the "Best New Artist" award in Germany in 1991. While Naghavi is still with the band, Ruiz left in 1992 (he would later return in 2001). And One released three more albums with Machinery Records before leaving them around 1996-1997 and signing to Virgin Records. They would release four albums on this label between 1997 and 2003.

The next And One album, Bodypop, was released on September 1, 2006 by Out of Line (Europe) and Metropolis Records (US) The single Military Fashion Show preceded the album. The band pulled out of their 2007 US tour with VNV Nation for unknown reasons.

In November 2007 And One announced the release of "Bodypop 1 1/2 featuring a string of covers including classics by Depeche Mode ("Never Let Me Down Again"), Front 242 ("Operating Tracks"), D.A.F ("Der Mussolini"), Nitzer Ebb ("I Give to You") and The Cure ("Kyoto Song"). The band also added two more live cover versions on top next to a bonus video clip for "Steine sind Steine".

Themes

The members of And One have touched upon political themes in their music. This is evident in light of the release of the single, Aus Der Traum in 1991 with portions of the proceeds going to Greenpeace. In 2001 after the terrorists attacks against the United States on September 11th, And One released the single Amerika Brennt (America Burns). An MP3 of this song was made available as a free download on the bands website. The bands home-page had also been changed to display a picture of a baby wrapped in an American flag. During the time immediately following the 9/11 terrorists attacks it was a common phenomenon for websites to display a patriotic American symbol as a gesture of solidarity.
