button.gif (123 bytes) "We've been successful without marketing hype, without posters,without the whole industry shebang. You need a major label to launch a band these days, supposedly, so I'm proud we've got round that. We're devoid of the usual rubbish that surrounds groups. People still don't quite know what we look like.Which is part of the charm for me, the element of subversion and mystery. I'm glad my face isn't plastered all over crisp bags." - Sister Bliss, Faithless, 1998

 
TIMELINE

Faithlessbutton.gif (123 bytes) Faithless consists of Rollo (Armstrong), Sister Bliss (Ayalah Bentovin), Jamie Catto, Maxi Jazz, and Dave Randall. The group, a mix of producers and DJs, have been creating a stir in dance clubs with their Euro-house blends and electronica sounds internationally. Rollo, who has a degree in philosophy, created his first music recording with friends, Felix and Red Jerry. The track, "Don't You Want Me" went on to become a million-seller for Felix in 1992. This success helped Rollo find more good fortune with producing, remixing, and writing for other artists including Simply Red, Donna Summer, Pet Shop Boys, and M People.

1995...

button.gif (123 bytes) Rollo turned his sights on making his own music with his own band. Sister Bliss had already found music success with the dance hits "Can't Get A Man, Can't Get A Job (Life's A Bitch)" and "Oh What A World," and DJ-ing around the U.K. before joining in with Faithless. Their first big break as a group came with the success of "Insomnia" in Germany, and the subsequent hits "Salva Mea" and "Reverence."

1996...

Faithless - Reverencebutton.gif (123 bytes) Faithless released Reverence on Rollo's label, Cheeky Records (later distributed by Arista Records). Rollo told Muzik Magazine: "Each of us have our own individual musical agendas and ambitions, we've each set our own goals, and whatever they may be, we're going to achieve them. Without the slightest hesitation. Me and Sister Bliss are going to be the first international superstar producers to arrive from house. The whole music scene is converging and we can only benefit." A new version of the track "Insomnia" hit the Top 5 in the U.K. later in the year.
