Biography

Former EBM/Electro-Project from Germany. Featuring Talla2XLC and Jallokin. Released on Zoth Ommog. Their most famous track is The Bog with guest vocals of Jean-Luc DeMeyer (Front 242, C-Tec).

Bigod 20 was a German electro-industrial band which was formed in 1988 by music producers Andreas Tomalla (aka Talla 2XLC and formerly of the band Moskwa TV) and Markus Nikolai (aka Jallokin).

History

In the late 1980s, Talla and Jallokin formed the band Pluuto under Talla’s own Technodrome Records (TDI Records) label. At the time, Talla was also involved in the production of several other projects such as Robotiko Rejekto, Tribantura, and Microchip League.

In 1988, the duo released the single Body to Body under the name “Bigod 20” as part of Talla’s newly founded Music Research label, which eventually evolved into Zoth Ommog Records.

In 1990, Bigod 20 was signed to Sire Records and released the hit single The Bog, which became a dancefloor favorite around the world. The single featured a strong Front 242 influence. “The Bog” title track even featured the guest vocal work of Front 242 lead man Jean-Luc De Meyer.

In 1991 Talla and Jallokin joined up with musician Thomas Franzmann (aka Zip Campisi) and released their first full-length album Steel Works!. The album spawned the single On the Run, which contained the EBM-influenced cover of Madonna’s “Like a Prayer”. The single It’s Up To You followed soon afterward.
