1) The Weathermen is an underground hip-hop supergroup, consisting of Tame One, Breeze Brewin, El-P, Cage, Aesop Rock and Yak Ballz. Former members include Camu Tao (deceased), Copywrite, Vast Aire, Masai Bey, and Jakki da Motamouth. They released a mixtape in 2003 titled The Conspiracy on Eastern Conference Records.
In the summer of 2010, Cage announced on his facebook page that he and Aesop Rock were working on a collaborative effort, and that there would be no further Weathermen-wide releases in light of Camu Tao's passing.
Aesop Rock refers to the group on the hidden track of his album, None Shall Pass.
2) Formed in Belgium by Belgian Jean-Marc Lederman and American vocalist (and former Tuxedomoon associate] Bruce Geduldig, The Weathermen emerged out of the mid-80s "electronic body music" wave. They were noted for their sarcastic social commentary lyrics over beat-driven melodies.
Early singles and Eps on the Play It Again, Sam label, and the albums Ten Deadly Kisses and The Black Album, combined European technopop of Yello with EBM beats and a sense of humor. One of their songs, "Poison" made the German Top 50 singles chart. The group earned a following in the US through PIAS's distribution through Wax Trax! In 1990, the duo signed to Mute records to release Beyond the Beyond. After their 1992 album Global 851 the group went silent; reforming in the 2000's. Infacted released a compilation, Ultimate Poison!, in 2010.
