The Pleasure Dome

Walls of crunchy guitars and rolling punk rock melodies mean The Pleasure Dome are someone we want you to get to know better. So we asked them the questions that matter.

Listening to The Pleasure Dome, you might be reminded of The Walkmen or even more distantly The Buzzcocks. They're romantic and sarcastic, raw and roaring with honesty. If 2020's Tory/Trump governments, global pandemic and race revolution have a soundtrack, these Bristolians play as confused, angry and sardonic a part in it as the no-good-punk scene should.

Answers are from Bobby (vocals, guitar) and Loz (bass).

RAW MEAT: Tell us about your local music scene; what’s your favourite local venue, are there any record labels or stores that we should look up, what’s the scene like where you're from?
Bobby
: The local scene in Bristol is pretty tight knit, and there’s lots of good bands - so it’s hard to know everyone. But... everyone knows someone who knows someone else, there’s lots of links. It’s quite incestuous. I think my favourite venue in Bristol is The Louisiana. I’ve been through a lot at that place.

Name one track or band that you love from the past.
Bobby
: The Zombies - 'This Will Be Our Year'.

Name one track or band that you're loving right now.
Loz
: bdrmm - 'Push/Pull'.

Name one track or band that you think we should be listening out for in the future.
Bobby: Katy J Pearson. Her songs are amazing, the best thing coming out of Bristol right now.

What are you up to now and what can we expect from you next?
Bobby: We have another single to come from our recordings at Invada Studios, which we're excited about. Working with James Trevascus at such a prestigious place as Invada was a pleasure. Other than that, keeping on with the same as usual, writing a lot and working on future releases. We’ve not played together since we did a live stream at a friends studio a few days before lockdown, so we're desperate for a live music scene to come back and to get back to recording more music.

NO ONE CARES WHAT YOU THINK, BUT LEAVE A COMMENT ANYWAY

Our slow burning love affair with high-energy punk rock peddling, The OBGMs has finally lead to us popping the question(s).

Our lovely hunks of Fresh Flesh have recommended some pretty amazing music, people and places for you lot. Here’s another round up of who the bands you love… love.

It took roughly 20 seconds for us to fall madly in love with Pabst and their latest single 'Skyline'. A band that takes mid 90s Britpop and put it through a grunge-grinder.
