Biography

Win is the name of more than one artist

1. Formed in 1984 by ex-Fire Engines members Davey Henderson and Russell Burn, Win constitued an attempt by members of Edinburgh’s post-punk fraternity to storm the charts. Their music was catchy, very much grounded in the electro-dance-pop sound of the mid-80s, and full of wry lyrics.

They released a debut LP in 1987 on London, entitled “Uh Tears Baby”. This contained their best-known song “You’ve Got The Power”, a giant football chant of a song that would later turn up on a TV commercial for a certain brand of Scottish lager. On being dropped by London, they moved to Virgin for a second LP, “Freaky Trigger”, released in 1989. This was a sleeker effort, displaying a noticeable Prince influence.

However, the charts remained unperturbed, and Win split in 1989. Henderson then returned to his indie roots by forming The Necterine No 9.



2. WIN is a project where 11 trainees who have been trained in YG Entertainment (a record label and talent agency founded by Yang Hyun-suk based in Seoul, South Korea)’s training system compete in a survival audition for ten weeks, in team A and B, and the winning team debut as boy band “WINNER”.

YG, has returned finally in 2013 with the first boy group in 8 years since BIGBANG’s debut, named ‘WINNER’.
