Electronic was a British group formed by Johnny Marr, ex-guitarist of the group The Smiths, with the guitars, low and keyboards, and by Bernard Sumner, leader of the group New Order, with the keyboards and the song.
Regarded as an alternative project from the long interludes between the exits of discs, Sumner and Marr invited at the time of other artists, the such leader of the Pet Shop Boys, Neil Holding, and Karl Bartos, of the German group Kraftwerk.
Electronic was the project which collected the most success among the various projects initiated by the members of New Order. The first simple “ Getting Away With It ”, with Neil Holding in the choruses, reached the 12th place in the sales the simple ones in the United Kingdom, and was also classified with the the United States in 1990. Their first album éponyme reached the second place in the British classifications, and was sold to more than one million specimens in the world. Their greater British success was “ Disappointed ”, reaching the 6th place of the classifications, with Neil Holding with the song.
However, in spite of these successes, Electronic could never reach the popularity of the Fart Shop Boys, New Order, or The Smiths, and their second album, “ Raise the Pressure ” was a disappointment, being sold to only 90.000 specimen.
