In late 2005 a new member, Client E, joined the group. This is Emily Mann, who was a contestant on the Channel 5 reality show Make Me a Supermodel, an artist, and an active DJ, usually performing as Emily Strange. Client E left the band in June 2007. In November 2007 Charlotte Hatherley joined the band as Client C, to fill the vacant role of bassist on their European and Scandinavian tours.Client was the first act signed to Depeche Mode member Andy Fletcher's record label, Toast Hawaii. They have toured with the likes of Depeche Mode and Erasure and have been described as a combination of "the Pet Shop Boys at their most commercial and The Human League at their most obscure".Client have collaborated with several high-profile musicians and directors. Their video for "Pornography" was directed by French director Jamie Deliessche from video production company Schmooze. It features Carl Barât (formerly of The Libertines and Dirty Pretty Things) on vocals.
