A minimalist German outfit responsible for a number one hit across Europe in 1982, Trio used little more than guitar and drums to frame their monotoned vocals and industrial-based songs. The band's self-titled 1981 debut originally appeared only in their native country, but when the following year's single "Da Da Da" became successful -- it hit number two in England and sold a million copies -- the U.K.'s Mobile Suit Corporation re-released the album with a version of the track. Trio released a cassette-only live album in 1982, and signed to Mercury in the U.S., where their first release was another self-titled work, though only of EP length. Of course, it also included "Da Da Da," and set the stage for 1983's Trio & Error, which had a version of "Da Da Da" as well. Finally, in 1983, Trio released an album without a version of their most famous track, and Bye Bye proved quite prophetic. ~ John Bush, Rovi
