The Beloved are a British electronic dance music group. t the meeting in 1986, Cambridge graduate Steve Waddington was present, and the two formed the core of Journey Through, with Tim Havard. When Guy Gausden completed the lineup, the group changed their name to The Beloved. The band originally had a guitar-orientated sound, but soon began using drum machines and dance elements. They sounded at times like New Order, and a summation of this stage of their career can be found on their first studio album, Where It Is, which is actually best described as a compilation of previously released material, consisting of singles and related B-Sides, pressed onto one individual long playing work. The record includes all the early singles, "A Hundred Words," "This Means War," "Happy Now," and the double A-side "Surprise Me" / "Forever Dancing," all of them released between 1986 and 1987, all of them on Where It Is, all of them making the Top 30 in the UK Indie Chart, and all of them failing in the UK Top 75.
