Toni Halliday contributed vocals to two tracks on Recoil’s LP 'Bloodline' in 1991 but, of course, most people will know her in her more familiar role as one half of Curve.

Formed in 1990, Curve released their first EP 'Blindfold' in 1991. Two further EP's, 'Frozen' and 'Cherry', helped to established the duo as a credible force in the British indie scene.

Their first album 'Doppelganger' in 1992 was quickly followed by 'Cuckoo' the following year and Curve were rapidly building themselves a reputation and a strong live following. However, roller coasting American tours and a full-on lifestyle left them emotionally drained resulting in Toni and Dean’s decision to take a break from the band, and each other, to work on individual projects.

Toni experimented briefly with an all-female noise rock band 'Scylla' before Curve eventually re-emerged from their extended sabbatical in 1997, with a new single 'Chinese Burn'.

Released in 1998, the latest Curve album 'Come Clean' features a less guitar-dominated edge than previous LP’s and has been welcomed by their loyal devotees. Curve were recently (April ‘98) on tour in the States and, according to the many Recoil fans who attended their shows, went down a storm!

Toni and Dean are currently working on a new LP.
