PLEASURE FOREVER Pleasure Forever CD (vinyl on GSL)

The San Francisco trio formerly known as SLAVES – is the musical embodiment of that orgone enigma of human will and desire. Comprised of the deceptively simple instrumentation of piano, guitar and drums, Pleasure Forever fuses the utopian ecstasy of ’60s psychedelic pop with the sinister undercurrents of ’70s hedonist claustrophobia. The resulting album is a surreal vision of humanity, both ancient and contemporary, that embraces collapse as much as it yearns toward infinity.
