Xenomania is a songwriting and production outfit invented by Brian Higgins.
In the 1990s Higgins had worked as part of the Motiv-8 remixing thing, and had also co-written 'Believe' for Cher.
He worked with a songwriter called Miranda Cooper when they were in a pop thing called Moonbaby. It didn't do very well but they decided to stay together professionally. Fast-forward a few years and Brian has put a songwriting team (including Miranda and a rotating cast of talented popsmiths) inside the big house Cher bought him.
Songs like Sugababes' 'Round Round', all of Girls Aloud's amazingness, Melanie Blatt's 'Do Me Wrong', Abs '7 Ways' and Kylie's 'Giving You Up' all came out of the Xenomania funhouse.
They've had a go at inventing their own acts, too. Mini Viva were amazing. Vagabond were not. You know how this sort of thing goes.
In 2011 Brian decided that Xenomania should concentrate on what they do best (ie banging out brilliant pop for brilliant people they haven't necessarily invented) and one of the first 'fruits' of this was 'All Fired Up' for The Saturdays. Not a bad start, right viewers?
