Popular on the Brighton scene in the early eighties, THE FASCINATIONS were an eight piece soul, r&b pop band that was formed from the remnants of the
Brighton band, THE CHEEKS, in late 1979. We played pubs, clubs and colleges, also winning a Battle of the bands contest.
The line up was Rick: Guitar/Vocals/Harmonica. Pete Early: bass/Vocals. Steve Geoghan: Guitar/Vocals. Rob Grant: Drums. Simon (Spee) Spalding: keyboards.
Steve Early: Sax. Jill Early: Backing Vocals. Emma: Backing Vocals. Lindi: backing Vocals.
