Biography

There have been multiple groups that have used this name.

1) Undercover was a UK based pop-house group who hit the UK #2 spot in 1992 with their Stock, Aitken, Waterman produced cover of Baker Street. Pop covers of Never Let Her Slip Away and I Wanna Stay With You followed before the demise of the S/A/W ‘Hit Factory,’ but by then, Undercover’s star was starting to fade anyway. They released two studio albums, Check Out the Groove and ain’t no stoppin’ us!.

2) Undercover was one of the pioneering acts in Christian music. Formed in the early 1980s by Joey “Ojo” Taylor in southern California, Undercover brought a new punk sound to the music scene that differed from the and bands of the time. Through more than two decades and a few lineup changes, the band released eight studio albums and two live albums, and is considered by many to be pioneers in what would later be called Alternative music in the Christian world.

While the band has seen several members come and go (and come again), Taylor has said on more than one occasion that the band decided sometime after 1994’s Forum that “Undercover is Ojo, Gym, Sim, and Gary,” emphasizing that any other lineup, if any, would in the future be called something else.

Undercover played two reunion shows in California in August 2005. Their first eight albums have been collected into two sets, Anthology 1 (the first four albums on two CDs), and Anthology 2 (the next four albums on four CDs).

    @chrisxanthus: you really don't like branded? based on your top groups, i'd have guessed branded your favourite. i lost some interest in them after balance of power, but branded, 3/28/87, and balance of power were favs of mine for awhile.

    The original lineup with Bill Walden on vocals was by far the best. Their first three albums were some of the best Christian albums ever. What happened to them after that point to them musically I'll never understand.

    weird how the listen now and 3/4 top albums appear to be from undercovers #2 and #3, but the sounds like bands are clearly from undercover #1.
