    The Pleasers would still be going with the same line up if there were some decent places to play! It seems abroad is the best option...

    A resurgence of The Pleasers music is coming round again as the Chinese social media App WeChat use The Pleasers song Troublemaker to promote and advertise (online and TV) their brand across Europe.

    Are the Pleasers still going, and with the same lineup?? I saw them years ago (if memory serves right it was at the Rochester Castle in Stoke Newington, with Wire) and really liked them, and I bought a 45 too. Thanks for reminding me of a groovy little band!

Über mich

The Band 
With their smart suits and ability to actually play their instruments The Pleasers, Nick Powell, Steve McNerney, Bo Benham & Dave Rotchelle) were at the forefront of the new wave of guitar-based groups that swept through the Britain’s music industry in the late 70’s.  
They wrote and performed great songs with superb harmonies, jangling guitars and pure sixties drum fills, and their live shows brought back the fashion for being surrounded by cool guy’s wearing thin ties and screaming mini skirted girls.  
As proud Londoners, the group described their sound as Thamesbeat but you might know it better by the name their music was given by press of the time: Powerpop. Yes The Pleasers were the group who gave birth to the title that defines strong melodic pop to this day. 
Teenage magazines, Music papers and National press alike named The Pleasers as the Sound of 1978 and toward the end of that year the sound, the look and the clean cut image evolved into a huge Mod revival that became a whole scene in itself. But that as they say, is another story. 
Always a major feature of their live act, the groups enthusiastic studio cover of the Who’s 1966 anthem ‘The Kids Are Alright’ brought a host of favorable reviews and comments when it was released in Spring ’78 from, among others, the songs composer Pete Townshend. 
If you were there at the time and were lucky enough to catch The Pleasers on one of their sell out tours, this will bring the memory back for you and if you weren’t, then you will certainly want to know what you missed. 
Listen then to some of their recently re-mastered tracks from 1977-78 (produced by Tommy Boyce, Ron Richards & Geoff Haslam).
The Pleasers 'Thamesbeat' album consisting of 17 tracks was released back in 1996 on the Lost Moment Record label shortly after Benham/McNerney of The Pleasers acquired ownership and global rights to the songs and recorded masters of their music catalog, most of which is now available on iTunes that still stand today as fresh, quality, powerful pop. No less than the original Powerpop.

A resurgence of The Pleasers music is coming round again as the Chinese social media App WeChat use The Pleasers song Troublemaker to promote and advertise (online and TV) their brand across Europe.
