The Weathermen are a humorous electronic duo based in Belgium. Trained by Jean Marc Lederman and Bruce Geduldig, Tuxedomoon's visual specialist. They are gradually moving away from electronic "alternative dance" music towards a more slightly satirical pop EBM music. In 1987 their hit "Poison" caught the attention of a wider audience.
[PIAS] co-founder Kenny Gates:
“When Jean-Marc Lederman, a friend of Michel and I and a well-known musician in the Brussels scene, first came in with “old friend Sam” to play it to us in our office, he described it as a joke, a gimmick that wouldn’t last. Tuxedomoon who I revered had been using the attic of our office building to write and rehearse and I was thrilled to know that one of its members – Bruce Geduldig – was singing on the project.
But what initially was a tongue-in-cheek combo concept became very serious when “poison” got released and became a huge hit notably in Germany. The success was unexpected but welcome and The Weathermen became an iconic project for the label and subsequently produced many great songs. They toured the world and had their fair contribution to electronic music with “Poison” having become a classic. Jean-Marc now does film music and remains a very good friend of [PIAS].”
