Babble is the duo of New Zealand native Alannah Currie (b. September 28, 1957) and Englishman Tom Bailey (b.January 18, 1956), who formerly made up the Thompson Twins, a dance-rock band that charted with seven albums in the U.S. between 1982 and 1989, the most successful of which was the million-selling Top Ten hit Into the Gap (1984), which featured their biggest single, "Hold Me Now" (#3). They reorganized as a six-piece band with Indian and new age influences and released their first album as Babble, The Stone, in 1994. In 1996, they returned with Ether. ~ William Ruhlmann, Rovi
