Haze & The Pearson Memmott Conspiracy

21 Jul 2023 20:00

Two Sheffield bands with long pedigrees of quality adventurous music grace the stage at The Greystones for an evening of rock, prog and magic!

The Pearson Memmott Conspiracy – PMC for short – combines Richard Memmott’s bass with Pod Pearson’s guitar and Dean Cousin’s drums to produce a unique blend of quirky songwriting, lyrical music and pounding rock which first surfaced in 2016’s “The Soundtrack To An Ordinary Day”, and continues on the current release “Freedom, Industry And Providence”. The trio have won praise in various bands severally and together for decades, as fans of Bravado, Roger, Psi Phi, Prog Doctors, Double Life, The Change, Zirk Dextron and many others will attest.

Haze need little introduction to Sheffield rock audiences. Formed in the late 70s (although technically active since the late 1960s!) by brothers Chris & Paul McMahon, joined by Paul Chisnell, they established a reputation as one of the hardest working underground bands of the 80s. The band released many LPs, singles & cassettes, and continued to weave in and out of the scene as Haze, World Turtle, Treebeard, celebrating 30th and then 40th anniversaries with new songs and music. Since his retirement from music, Paul Chisnel’s drum seat has been taken by guitarist Paul’s son Danny, and their current release “Back To The Bones” is his first studio album with the band.
