In 1988 during a garage rock concert in a small club in Madrid, guitarists Mike Sobieski and Norah Findlay were dumfounded when two hundred and fifty pound Kike Turmix commandeered the microphone and belted out “The Crusher”. The crowd went wild and Mike and Norah knew they had found the Singer they had been looking for. Two years later with the addition of Barnaby Bowles on bass, The Pleasure Fuckers became Spain´s most notorious punk rock band and continue to leave audiences screaming for more.
THE PLEASURE FUCKERS are a Punk Rock band. The fact that they consider themselves a good-time Rock´n´Roll band reflects their attitude toward their adoptive homein Madrid. This town´s unique Rock´n´Roll nightlife is what brought together The Pleasure Fuckers with their diverse backgrounds: bassist Barnaby Bowles from London, guitarists Mike Sobieski and Norah Findlay from California, Kike Turmix from the Basque country and drummer Jorge Fuertes, Madrid´s only native son. The blending of cultures together with domineering guitar riffs, straight forward melodies and fast driving rhythms accounts for their success not only in Spain but also all over Europe, South America; The United States, Canada, Japan and Australia.
