The High were formed in Manchester in 1989 by Andy Couzens ( ex Stone Roses ) John
Matthews, Chris Goodwin and Simon Davies. They signed to London Records after only
one gig. Their highly acclaimed debut album ‘Somewhere Soon’ released in 1990
received rave reviews.
“ In brief, ‘Somewhere Soon’ is a very effective record, expertly executed and completely
Addictive. The dog’s bollocks. I hope they become massive”. ( 9/10) Jack Barron NME.
Combining 60’s influenced pop with psychedelic guitar, The High had 3 minor Uk chart
singles before hitting the top 30 with the re-vamped infectious Box Set Go. The band split
in 1993 and reformed in 2015 with Tony Meehan replacing Simon Davies and Jack
Couzens taking over from Chris Goodwin on drums. Scott Parkinson has since replaced
Say It Now was written in the early nineties after the release of Somewhere Soon. Although
it was a popular live track it was only ever recorded as a demo. This track never appeared on
their much sort after second album ‘ HYPE’ due to the band thinking it didn’t quite fit .
When The High reformed In 2015, Say It Now was back in the live set and re-recorded in 2018.
Sugarpuff was recorded in 2015.
25 years later The High are back with more expertly crafted guitar chime pop.
