Phil Murray and the Boys From Bury are almost a legend in the north of England. If you haven’t heard the music you know the name. But they’re not from Bury and the singers’ name isn’t Murray. They deal in an infectious brand of punk-infused witty guitar pop inspired by life in their home town of Rotherham, a town which requires a sense of humour!
Songs like ‘I Can’t Stop Eating Trees’, ‘Shurrup Me Dads In Bed’ and ‘Dying Turtle’ (the latter inducing the audience to spontaneously get on their backs and wriggle their arms and legs in the air) have been received with great enthusiasm from audiences across the UK.
The line-up comprises Phil on lead vocal, Craig on bass, Rich on drums and Dally on guitar. The band have been playing together for a number of years both as headliners and also as support to the likes of The Damned, UK SUBS, Dr. Feelgood and John Otway.
