THE NIGHT & DAY SHOWCASE

PERCY

Percy are proving to be tenacious musical survivors – typical Yorkshire Terriers – scruffy and soft looking from a distance but surprisingly quick with a bite and lots of unexpected noise close too! ” Tom Robinson Bbc 6 Music
Founded in York in May 1996. Percy have often been compared to post-punk heroes like The Fall, Gang of Four or Half Man Half Biscuit. Hard hitting catchy lo-fi garage riffs and swooping synths are underpinned with wry vocal narratives on life in the North. The press description of Percy’s music is as imaginative as the music itself and the band seem to collect ace straplines such as ‘The Kinks of Punk’, ‘A Yorkshire version of the Sweeney’ and Steve Lamacq’s own ‘Toe tapping jaw droppers’.
“Percy deliver a twisted but humorous tale of small town humanity in punky rasping Yorkshire tones. Discordant nasty and great fun – your can really hear the venom!” Vic Galloway

” A toe tapping jaw dropper: Life in a northern town on viciously beaten guitars. Think Half Man Half Biscuit meets the Housemartins…” Steve Lamacq
