Originally a Dallas area duo, with members Jay Gillian and Jimron Goff. Vocalist Will Loconto replaced Goff in 1989. The band released a cassette EP, Hot on Top, to local acclaim and airplay on local station The Edge 94.5, which also included a version of the song “Ecstasy” on the first Tales From the Edge compilation. Oak Lawn Records picked up the band for a 12″ single edition of “Don’t Let My Love (Push You Away)”, which did well enough to attract the attention of Columbia Records, who signed the group. Columbia sent them into the studio with Information Society’s Paul Robb handling production duties, releasing Intruder in 1992. Loconto quit the band in 1993, setting out to work with Information Society, leaving Gillian to bring in other players for tours with Information Society and Anything Box. T-4-2 faded into the background after 1993, with two songs appearing on compilations, and only a handful of Dallas-area live gigs since. The band has no affiliation with the Luxembourg-based band of the same name.
