The Pleasure Crew – So Good (UK 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 2nd February 2015

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1987

A. Front

“So Good” was the debut single by British group Pleasure Crew released on Factory records October 1987. The 12″ version was the groups only commercially released single.

Noel Taylor was the former vocalist and guitarist for Adventure. Adventure’s prophetic dance floor sound was designed for a wide audience, but they disbanded before the curtain went up. Noel then met Himat “Chester” Singh, a pent percussionist. Both had a common dislike of band compromise and a common love of song and dance. TcO, Manchester’s big and hot production, was brought in and the kettle was on.

Pleasure Crew teamed up with Mike Pickering (Hacienda DJ/Quando Quango) to fill the house. “So Good” is a disc designed for movement. It means what you like, but it’s a means to move.

This is one of those lost 12″ single’s that many have never heard of, but demands to be given new life. I hope you like it.
