Purdy (the band) is performing live for the 1st time in 5 years at Red Rattler, 6 Faversham Street Marrickville, on the 18th of February.
The Purdy band will consist of several musician buddies who feature on ‘Deviant Nature’, Alex Crowfoot (ollo), Christian Houllemare (Happy Hate Me Nots / New Christs), Rory Toomey (Metabass n Breath / Simon Carter) and singer songwriter Donna Amini. The launch will also feature cameos by guest artists such as Niveen Abdelatty on trumpet and more, to be confirmed.
There will also be a host of DJ buddies, including Sir Robbo and Lars Cresta, plus suprises to make it a great night.

We are kicking off this new blog to announce our imminent next release ‘Deviant Nature‘ by Purdy.
Since the 2006 Tooth album Mudlarking (SOFT006) Mr Purdy has been busily beavering away on his next epic masterwork.
We’ve got the ball rolling by issuing 4 tracks from the album for radio. So far things are off to a great start, with FBi radio in Sydney, placing ‘I know, you said’ on rotation and lots of enthusiasm @ 2SER. That’s just in the first few days! Next, we’ll be getting these lovelies out to the rest of the country and the world asap.
‘Deviant Nature’ will be available in October.
The album has been wholly written and produced by Purdy. All instruments arranged and played by Purdy, except for the contributions by the lovely gang of talented lads & ladies who came to his aid. These include: Jim Denley (sax & flute), Christian Houllemare (bass & harmonica), Alex Crowfoot (vox & flute), Donna Amini (vox), Marge Smith (bass clarinet), Brian Hall (guitar), Joseph Leonard (bass & steel guitar), Rory Toomey (percussion), Niveen Abdelatty (trumpet), John Maddox (bass), Tim Batson (synths & farfisa), Kavi Samut (flute) and Jayson McBride (trombone).
There is quite a shift in the sonic soundscape this time around for Purdy’s 3rd solo release. After a long spell of creating mostly instrumental works Purdy has taken a radical departure into the world of lyrics. Not that it’s a new thing for him, with many years of writing, ie songs, poetry, short stories & plays as part of his creative story. He feels though now he has at last been able to approach words, voice, language and symbols in an honest and colourful way.
