          rachel reaching for the sun The Pleasurables recorded and gigged regularly 2002-2004 whilst the core band members were studying at Newcastle University on the BMus Popular and Contemporary Music degree. The line-up featured Steven Houlsby (vocals / acoustic guitar), John Ferguson (electric guitar / effects / computer), Davey Meikle (vocal harmonies), Richard Keenlyside (bass guitar) and Andy Stephenson (percussion). The original idea was to write very sparse songs, keeping the harmonic and lyrical content simple enough to allow plenty of space for sonic experimentation, lots of different guitar timbres, vocal harmonies, counter melodies, live percussion and electronic beats (running on laptop). An EP of songs 1-7 was released late 2003, we played our final gig at “The Cluney” in Byker September 2004 where these photos were taken. I’ve arranged the following studio recordings in the order we performed them that night, starting with live contemporary dance piece “the four fiends” choreographed by Charlotte Mumby, this track featured live vocals, and was somewhat different to the studio/instrumental version presented here, which was only ever intended as a guide for the dancers.

I’ve just rediscovered this stuff, and wanted to archive it somewhere other than the back of my sock-drawer! Surprisingly, an early online review is still available here.
