The band was born some 20 years ago on the edge of punk era and the age of electronic music. You can hear it both from their music, their sound is a violent collision of the industrial apocalypse and European classical music.

Now they are on the tour with their recent album – called Super Ready / Fragmenté. The band's line-up has generally consisted of a vocalist, a sampler operator and a drummer. TYG's instrumentation includes sampled electric guitars, drums, keyboards, and other samples creating quite unusal but often pleasing and attractive music. The lyrics mixes English with French and sometimes German.

The band has its best years behind in the late 80's and 90's (especially TV Sky album was a great music and commercial success), but still have something new to tell.
