Formed in 1991 by Mat Hook, the project was obviously destined for great things since day one, a self-evident fact that lead to Mat turning down Thom Yorke who "was forming a new band and wanted a guitarist..."

"Psychophile were the sort of band the scene would have loved when people started babbling about cyber matters in the late 90s, but these days I think they'd appeal to anyone. In fact when you think how bands started trying to imagine themselves somehow equipped to turn to 'dance' elements in their work in the mid-90s, which led to many a hamfisted synth debacle, it’s not surprising Psychophile get noticed for their quality."
