Beranek is a Norwegian solo artist. His debut single Dra te' hælvete (1981), which was a great success, caused controversy when the song was banned by NRK. It was followed up by the albums Sound of Danger (1981), X-Ray (1983), Trigger (1984), Daylight In the Dark (1986), The Red File (1988) and Tacoma Bridge (1994). He provided synth, guitar, bass, drums and vocal on all albums, and produced all albums himself. Jean Jaques Burnel from the Stranglers recorded one track together with Beranek on Trigger. He also produced a couple of tracks for Daylight In the Dark as well as providing bass and backing vocals. Dave Greenfield from the Stranglers also contributed to the album with some synth-work together with pedal steel guitarist B.J.Cole.
