Sneaker Pimps

Sneaker Pimps are a British Trip-hop band formed in Hartlepool, England in 1995.

They are best known for their first album Becoming X (released in 1996) and particularly the singles "6 Underground," "Spin Spin Sugar," and "Tesko Suicide" from the same album.

They took their name from an article the Beastie Boys published in their Grand Royal magazine about a man they hired to track down classic sneakers.

The band's founding members were Chris Corner and Liam Howe, who then recruited Kelli Dayton for vocal duties.

After the first album, the band felt that demos for second album better suited his voice, especially in regard to the more raw, personal quality of the lyrics.

Combined with the fear of being identified with the fad for trip-hop acts, Dayton was asked to leave the group, and Corner became the singer.
