Since its first inception in 1981, Moev's shimmering soundscape has included an intoxicating blend of dance beats, melodic vocals and lush keyboards. American D.J.'s loved the song "Crucify Me" and Atlantic Records took notice of the extensive airplay and picked up Moev in the States. When Atlantic released"Yeah Whatever" in America in 1989, singles such as "Crucify Me" and"Capital Heaven" garnered the international recognition that established Moev as a staple of both the alternative dance and radio outlets. In 1990 Moev released their third full length album "Head Down" produced by John Fryer (Nine Inch Nails, Love & Rockets, Shreikback fame). "No Flash In the Sky", "In & Out" and the title track "Head Down" recieved worldwide airplay. After a successfull American tour with Xymox, Moev was once again on what seemed to be a permanent hold. Personell changes at Atlantic and personal difficulty at Nettwerk had left the band lableless. Music business frustrations and the sad death of Dean Russell had forced the members to move on.
