The Patrick James Pearson Band: HMV Ritz gig

Crash bang and walloping straight out of Plymouth are dynamic trio THE PATRICK JAMES PEARSON BAND. Garnering a nice comfortable following in their native Cornwall & Devon, they now set out around the country as special guests on the forthcoming Hard Fi Tour. The lucky triumvirate caught the ear of Hard Fi’s frontman Richard Archer after he heard them on the Gary Crowley Show on BBC London and tracked them down and pitched up to a gig at the Kings Cross Water Rats where they were opening. That incendiary wee show was enough to persuade him and the deal was done straight after the show… So, catch them with Hard Fi at the following places:

Once described as a cross between At The Drive In and Ben Folds Five, The Patrick James Pearson Band’s first EP – The American Lover EP pricked up many ears. It was so attention-catching that the shady panel who choose bands for the BBC Introducing Stage at Glastonbury picked them out to perform on the Friday at the festival. Many, including Tom Robinson, raved about it thus rendering them the number 1 “Most Shared” band at Glastonbury for a good 24 hours on the BBC Glastonbury website home page. The song “Reasons To Move On” was also picked out by the BBC at Glastonbury to be aired on the Lauren Laverne show on 6 Music and on Friday’s BBC3 TV’s round up of the best of the festival. 3 videos of the Glastonbury performance can be seen at:

A new EP (featuring 5 whole tracks, a veritable aural feast and bargain to boot) – the aforementioned “Reasons To Move On” EP will be released on October 10th on the band’s own OUF label. Very much into the DIY ethic, The Patrick James Pearson Band do everything themselves, helped with a bit of cash earned by singer Patrick’s other job teaching music in primary schools. These tracks really were recorded in their bedrooms, drums and all, the long suffering residents of Plymouth look forward to the band going into a real studio soon! Sleeves, videos, web sites and tours all emanate from a bedroom somewhere in Plymouth, Patrick also runs popular local Plymouth club night – Ouf – though not from his bedroom!
