Chapterhouse formed in Reading (England) and went through the usual
Brit-pop initiation ritual with the singles Freefall (1990),
Sunburst (1990) and Pearl,
religiously collected in Whirlpool (Dedicated, 1991 - Cherry Red, 2006).
That brand of pop was slightly more shoegazing than the average,
(Breather, Treasure, Guilt), and occasionally danceable,
but nothing to write home about.
The future laid in the anomalous track, Falling Down, that took an
acid-house beat and sent its refrain spiraling around it.
Blood Music (Dedicated, 1993 -
Cherry Red, 2008)
pulled them out of the overcrowded Brit-pop
field and launched them in the discos.
Electronic keyboards, samples and drum machines overcome the melodies of
Summer's Gone, On The Way To Fly, Greater Power, etc.
The standout track is the guitar-driven We Are The Beautiful.
This incarnation of Chapterhouse collapsed the same way the first one had and
the band dissolved for good.
