ayne Static (Real Name: Wayne Wells; vocals/guitar/programming) and Ken Jay (drums) met as part of their employment in a Chicago department store. They soon after hired the services of Koichi Fukada (guitar) and Tony Campos (bass) to complete their line-up for Static-X. Their M.O. was to make guttural electronically assisted Metal, and a deal with 'Warner' let them express that on CD with the release of their debut album Wisconsin Death Trip (1999). The album's title alone gave it considerable street savvy and it got seemingly endless radio play on US frequencies, especially for the tracks Push It, I'm With Stupid and Bled For Days; it didn't take too long for the album to go platinum never mind the none-existent chart placing. Tripp Rex Eisenb (ex-Dope) replaced Fukada for the release of their second effort Machine (2001), an album that had its propers delivered to it by getting a chart position of 11 US/56 UK Shadow Zone (2003) followed soon after.
