Ambient pop duo Insides teamed singer/bassist Kirsty Yates and guitarist/programmer Julian Tardo, who previously joined forces under the name Earwig.
Signing to 4AD's Guernica imprint, the duo debuted in 1993 with the disquieting Euphoria; a year later, label chief Ivo Watts-Russell issued Clear Skin (consisting of a single 38-minute ambient piece) without Insides' permission, and the group parted ways with the company soon after. Landing on the Third Stone label, in 1997 they contributed a track to the A Taste of 3rd Stone Records, Vol. 2 sampler, next resurfacing in mid-2000 with the full-length Sweet Tip. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi
