*Give Me The Stage, God Knows My Life Needs Staging* Transformation is at the core of Chris Corner’s music and outlook. Ever since leaving wildly successful 1990’s trip-hop group Sneaker Pimps, Corner’s process of becoming IAMX beginning in 2004 has been theatrical, transcendent, and communal. Androgynous and visceral, IAMX has metamorphosed from small-town blue-collar kid to international pop star in the 1990s to creator of raw art that disrupts gender and genre in the 2000s. Fueling electronic experimentation with punk energy and confessional lyricism, Corner’s goth and industrial sound, fashion, performances, videos, and persona are larger than life, iconoclastic, and shockingly intimate.
