PMC unites the writing partnership of Richard Memmott (bass, vocal, keyboards) and Pod Pearson (guitars, vocals, synthesiser) with Dean Cousins (drums, percussion, gong)
Pod and Rich are two Sheffield-based multi instrumentalists, with a love of rock, classic pop, progressive, symphonic and jazz. Now that they have “grown up” (they describe this themselves as being “in their Autumn years”), they finally took the step to commit their music to tape. They formed The Pearson Memmott Conspiracy (PMC for short) in 2015, after decades of playing in cover bands and writing original music both together and separately. Some of their previous bands include acts such as the Prog Doctors, Psi Phi, Zirk Dextron and the Rush tribute band Bravado. They debuted with an EP in 2016, and then released the full-length album, The Soundtrack To An Ordinary Day, in February 2020. Completed by drummer and percussionist Dean Cousins (of Bravado, Tin Man, Stafford Galli), the trio have just released the exiting new album FREEDOM, INDUSTRY AND PROVIDENCE (February 2022).
