Lipps Inc was a studio band that achieved one significant hit, "Funkytown" in 1980.
The group was formed in Minneapolis by Steven Greenberg, who wrote and produced all of the group's music, and who also played several instruments. The lead singer was Cynthia Johnson, and the rest of the group consisted of a changing group of session musicians.
They achieved some popularity during the disco era of the late 1970s but only achieved one pop hit. "Funkytown" spent four weeks at number one in the United States and was awarded a platinum record. It reached number two in the United Kingdom and was a hit throughout the world. Their further singles failed to reach the pop charts, however they had a major dance hit in 1981 with "How Long". The group ceased recording in the mid 1980s.
