each recording converted to MP3 from various sources

The following mp3 files were all originally collected by STICK IT IN YOUR EAR TAPES.
The PLEASURE BEYOND MEASURE TAPES catalogue consists of recordings made by local bands and individuals etc.
All rights remain with the original artists.
Southampton has always boasted an incredibly diverse and prolific local music scene, but lacking any major commercial success or identifiable sound, the spotlight has fallen elsewhere.  As a consequence, far too many bands have shone for a few glorious moments, only to disappear and become a faded memory.  SIIYE now hosts a platform dedicated to these long-lost local musical orphans and outcasts.
