Scissor Sisters are an American band "spawned by the scuzzy, gay nightlife scene of New York" who took their name from a sexual position between two women also known as tribadism. Formed in 2001, its members consist of Jake Shears and Ana Matronic as vocalists, Babydaddy as multi-instrumentalist, Del Marquis as lead guitar/bassist, and Randy Real as drummer (who replaced Paddy Boom). Scissor Sisters came to prominence after the release of their disco version of Pink Floydâs "Comfortably Numb" became a commercial success and topped the charts throughout Europe, eventually scoring a Grammy nomination for Best Dance Recording. Their eponymous debut album became an international success particularly in the United Kingdom (a country they call their "spiritual home") where the album reached number one, was the best-selling album of 2004, was later certified platinum by the BPI and accrued them three BRIT Awards in 2005. All five singles from the album reached positions within the top twenty of the UK Singles Chart, including "Laura", "Comfortably Numb", "Take Your Mama", "Mary" and "Filthy/Gorgeous". The latter also scored the band their first number one on the Billboard chart for Hot Dance Club Songs. Although merely as successful in their native United States, the album was also a chart success in countries around Europe, in Australia and in Canada. The band''s following up studio album Ta-Dah proved to be another commercial and critical success for the band and scored them their second consecutive number one album in the UK as well producing their debut number one single in the UK "I Don''t Feel Like Dancin''". Displaying a shift towards a more club-oriented sound, their third studio album Night Work was released in 2010 and charted at number two on the UK Albums Chart, number one on Billboard''s Top Independent Albums charts and in the top ten of several international territories.
