An excellent reception for our gig at the Victoria Vaults in York on 1st October, and thanks to Mike Hood Photography for capturing the action. It was a great warm up for our support slot to the mighty CUD at the Crescent on 28th October – get your tickets early as it is likely to sell out.
All year we have been promoting the album “Seaside Donkeys” on vinyl only but from 23rd December you can get it on all your favourite digital platforms like Apple Music, Spotify or Tidal. So, from all of us at Percy: Happy Christmas, enjoy the songs and listen out for a brand new album in 2021. https://music.apple.com/gb/album/seaside-donkeys/1546131173
Click on the link below for a great new review of the full Seaside Donkeys album. The Guzzler says “Percy have evolved into a full on force to be reckoned with. A previous 2018 release “Sleepers Wake” was the first to showcase the present lineup and saw them regain an edge not heard since 20 years previously; “Seaside Donkeys” builds upon this whilst also introducing a keener sense of melody and arrangement, alongside moments of clangourous new-wave guitar and piercing dissonance…”
Full album review just in from Bill at With just a hint of Mayhem : “Percy are most definitely back with a bang. ‘Sleeper’s Wake’ was good but ‘Seaside Donkey’ is a whole new level. Punk, post-punk, US Garage, UK pub rock is all rolled into those menacing, satirical, maniacal, dark and twisted tales of life that Percy fans have come to know and love! If you miss out on this album then you really are a seaside donkey!”
Thanks to Bill at “With a Hint of Mayhem” for the first review of the single out this coming Friday. He says….
“The new album from York’s finest post-punkers PERCY, ‘Seaside Donkeys’ will be out in May, well COVID-19 permitting. Anyway, if you feel that you can’t wait that long for another PERCY fix they will be issuing a single from the album this Friday, 3rd April. It is called “Seaside Donkey” and will be bundled in this release with “Love Song”. I can picture massive singalongs occurring when “Seaside Donkey” gets played live, I will certainly be shouting my lungs out next time I see this excellent band live. The song has a slightly more acoustic feel than what we have come to expect from PERCY but put simply it is a great song! It even features a laconic violin motif which gives it the feel of being a drinking song, although perhaps a little bit of a maudlin drink, at least for me. “Love Song” is a complete contrast and rocks in a very John Lydon PiL vibe with a Julian Cope feel at times in the vocals, a song built for a heaving mosh pit! As a taster for the album these two tracks will almost certainly make you want to own it when it is issued, it will even be available on vinyl! If you want some music to ease yourself through this incredibly mad world then try PERCY!…”
