Producer/song writer Russell uses the human voice as another instrument so on some tracks multiple different vocal tracks merge with the backing rather than float above it. Squeaking, soaring, tapping and crying 'cello adds a haunting and sometimes dolphin or whale-like sound to the intros and outros. Sax trails loosely around in the background giving some tracks a night club feel. With the addition of their unusual intrumentation Box Office Poison songs are unique (classic examples of this are Strip Show, Come With Me and Nightmare On Elm Street). They released 6 singles, three of which were double A sides: Checkmate & 1995, Mysteries, Teenage Sex & Alien, Think For Yourself & Lady Grinning Soul, Legend of Xanadu and finally Popcorn. Their debut album was Beyond The Twilight Zone (Music for the 21st Century & Beyond). Their second album was the somewhat controversial & explicit Heavy Breathing Decade.
