Biography

Electric Sound of Joy formed in Chesterfield, England in the mid 1990’s. Initially a quintet, they released two 7” singles on the cult Earworm label: “Total Turn” and “Play Away”. These records sold out fairly quickly and the group found itself “tipped” by certain media players.

Despite (or perhaps because) of this attention singer Gregory left the group soon after. Rather than replace Gregory the group continued as an instrumental quartet. Foundry Recordings issued two EP’s and an eponymous album. Thereafter the group drifted into obscurity.

ESOJ made good use of analogue synths. They were sometimes compared to “retro-futurist” groups such as Plone - who hailed from nearby Birmingham and released records around the same time. The group dismissed such comparisons describing their music as “disco” in one NME interview.
