The new-era disco-pop band Tin Star was formed in 1996 by vocalist Dave Tomlinson, guitarist/songwriter Tim Bricheno, and bassist/programmer Tim Gordine. After playing a few shows and recording a demo, the band signed to V2 and released their debut album the Thrill Kisser in 1999. Two years later, the trio bounced back with Dirty Bird. ~ John Bush, Rovi
