"Bis" was a Scottish rock band—Steven Clark (Sci-fi Steven), John Clark (John Disco), and Amanda MacKinnon (Manda Rin).
The three musicians formed Bis in 1994, when Manda and John were in secondary school and Steven had recently finished. About a year later, they appeared on Top of the Pops performing ''Kandy Pop'' from their ''Secret Vampire Soundtrack'' EP ahead of its release, widely reported (even to the present day) as the first such appearance by an unsigned act. Bis had a number of EPs that almost scraped into the UK top 40, including ''Sweet Shop Avengerz''. In the late 1990s "Eurodisco", from the album ''Social Dancing'', became a notable success for the band.
The band's early releases were on Glasgow's legendary lo-fi Chemikal Underground label, run by The Delgados, before transferring to Wiiija where labelmates included Cornershop. In the USA, their records appeared on the underground label K Records and on the Beastie Boys' Grand Royal label. They toured extensively both in the U.K. and abroad—their diverse influences reflected in the kind of acts they appeared with: Pavement, Garbage, Luscious Jackson, Foo Fighters and Gary Numan among them....
