“The Purnells are one of Teesside’s most highly regarded bands. They combine the madness and ferocity of The Chapman Family, the heartfelt lyrics of Young Rebel Set and the beautiful musicianship of The Broken Broadcast. They bring together all that is good about this wonderful region of ours…” EXNE
With bluesy undertones, dark lyrics and a swaggering, theatrical performance from front man Stu, this is a band who don’t do things quietly. Expect bass-laden beats with anthemic melodies and a mix of styles forged together to create a truly unique sound that is both compelling and entertaining.
