Seminal post-punk band who have gone through numerous internal conflicts and line-up changes, as well as a variety of different styles and sounds. Formed in Notting Hill in 1979 by Jaz Coleman, Geordie Walker, Youth and Paul Ferguson, their dark experimental style provided one of the main steps on from punk rock. Massively influential on a range of different styles of music, they pioneered the industrial rock style with 90's Extremities, Dirt And Various Repressed Emotions. The band have inspired many industrial bands including Nine Inch Nails, Prong and Ministry. They have been cited by Trent Reznor, Nine Inch Nails 's leader, who mentioned his interest for their early material, saying that he studied their music. Al Jourgensen of Ministry has presented himself as a "big fan" of the group. Godflesh's Justin Broadrick was particularly influenced by their early releases containing dub versions. The band has also been cited by alternative music acts such as My Bloody Valentine and LCD Soundsystem. Shoegazing guitarist and composer Kevin Shields of My Bloody Valentine mentioned the band and praised more specifically Geordie's touch that he described as "this effortless playing producing a monstruous sound". In 2002, James Murphy of electro-punk band LCD Soundsystem sampled the music of "Change" on his debut single "Losing My Edge".
