The High were formed in 1989 by Andy Couzens ( ex Stone Roses ) John Matthews, Chris Goodwin and Simon Davies. They signed to London Records after one gig and their highly acclaimed debut Lp Somewhere Soon combining 60's pop and psyche guitar was released in 1990 to rave reviews. In brief, ' Somewhere Soon ' is a very effective record, expertly executed and completely addictive. The dog's bollocks. I hope they become massive. ( 9/10 ) Jack Barron NME. The band split in 1993 but reformed in 2015 with Tony Meehan replacing Simon Davies and Jack Couzens taking over from Chris Goodwin on drums. Scott Parkinson has since replaced Jack Couzens. 25 years after their last release, these Manchester favourite's are finally back with new material.
