Pioneers of early Kiwi electronica, The Body Electric was formed from the remnants of the punk band The Steroids. The Wellingtonians became one of the first electro-dance acts to succeed on alternative radio, with their debut single 'Pulsing' spending four months in the Top 50. It laid the foundations for an explosion of the New Zealand mid-1980s club scene but the group didn't hang around to see the era through - disbanding after the release of their debut album Presentation and Reality.
