Who is Benjamin Diamond?
He started life as a punk rocker in the band Chicken Pox, but taking inspiration from artists such as New Order, Michael Jackson, and Roxy Music, he veered towards electro. However, he is best known for his collaboration in Stardust with Thomas Bangalter and Alan Braxe. He sang the lyrics in their 1998 single "Music Sounds Better With You", which was an international success. This sparked interest in Diamond's own music.
In 2000, he released his first album Strange Attitude, which included his earlier singles "Little Scare" and "In Your Arms". The following year he released the EP Solitaire, which included a number of tracks he had produced especially for the Dior Autumn-Winter'01 fashion parade. In Martin James's book French Connections, his record company at the time is suggested to have wanted Strange Attitude to be an album in Stardust-style. At the same place, Benjamin Diamond says that he found it "very difficult to go back to my own style of music after Stardust". At around the same time, Diamond was involved in the somewhat short-lived music group We In Music.
