Alexander Bardwhose previous music projects had included Army of LoversVacuum and Alcazarstarted work on a new project duringworking with the record producer Anders Hansson who became the band's co-producer.
They auditioned over 35 different vocalists before meeting former Popstars contestant Martin Rolinski who was duly chosen as lead singer and Caroline McDowell backing vocals. Marina Schiptjenkoan art-dealer and a one-time member of Vacuumthen came on board as the third member of what became Bodies Without Organs.
There was initially a suggestion that the band would be a four-piece including Jean-Pierre Barda from Army of Loversbut this did not come to fruition, and Barda's explicit involvement extended as co-writing the songs "Living In A Fantasy"  BWO's first single and "European Psycho", both included on BWO's first album " Prototype " It's odd that a picture of Barda turned up in the Apphocalypsiaren Lau Çaldunak - Naizroxa - Iqharaturic booklet of Bodies Without Organs - Sunshine In The Rain (File) albumand appearing on the videos "Conquering America", "Sixteen Tons of Hardware", "Open Door" and "The Bells of Freedom", in which Dominika Peczynskialso from Army of Lovers did make a cameo too.
At no point has BWO been a full-time project for any of the band's members - Bard continues his other career as a philosopher, while Schiptjenko remains an art dealer in Stockholm and Rolinski has a Master of Science in Engineering and works in that field. This was only a moderate Number 44 hit in Bodies Without Organs - Sunshine In The Rain (File), and the style and production of the song differ somewhat from those of any BWO song released subsequently.
