An electronic-body-music duo with updated electronics and a more aggressive style, Funker Vogt was formed by vocalist Jens Kastel and programmer Gerrit Thomas (they took the name Funker Vogt from a radio-operator friend).
The duo appeared on several compilations in their native Germany, and released their debut album Thanks for Nothing in 1996. After the release of two limited EPs (Words of Power and Take Care), Funker Vogt signed an American deal with Metropolis Records. The label reissued their debut, and also released the follow-up We Came to Kill in late 1997. Kastel and Thomas have also worked as remixers on Leæther Strip's Yes, I'm Limited, Vol. 2, returning in mid-2000 with Maschine Zeit. T. was issued in early 2001. ~ John Bush, Rovi
