Biography

PCM were formed in 1990 by Neil Harvey and Nik Wells in Birmingham,UK Starting life as PCM Soundsystem, they began hosting parties in warehouses and empty buildings in the B’ham area and travelling to free festivals and outdoor parties with their sound. Playing an eclectic range of music from acid to hardcore to early jungle and often performing their own material live, they soon built up a large following in the emerging underground dance scene in the Midlands. After a nationwide clampdown on illegal parties in 1993, PCM started the infamous “CHAOS” club at local venue, the Moseley Dance Centre later moving it to the Circus club in Balsall Heath. With themselves as residents and playing hosts to guests such as Hyper On Experience (moving shadow), Dj Edge (edge/rabbit city), Ratty and Fallout, the club ran till ‘96 and achieved near legendary status as a mecca for those who liked their drum n bass dark and heavy. In 1995, PCM remixed “The End” by SCORN for their remix album “Ellipsis”. Despite being relatively unknown and in the company of such luminaries as Coil, Meat Beat Manifesto, Autechre and Bill Laswell, the PCM mix gained excellent reviews both in the UK and abroad. This led to an ongoing relationship with Mick Harris which has seen PCM play with Scorn in France,Holland,Belgium,Germany,Czech Republic,Austria and Switzerland as well as a 12” ep on Harris’ now defunkt Possible records and a solo project with Neil Harvey on Sub Rosa entitled ‘Shortcut to Connect”.
