Their first singles, ‘Letters to a Friend’ and ‘Still Smiling’, were both produced by Daniel Miller and preceded two album releases, My Translucent Hands (1986) and Fused (1989). By the beginning of the 90s, Baker and Leonard had become Fortran 5, releasing three albums for the label, before reincarnating in 1996 as Komputer, the name they continue to record under.
