“One of the things that makes rock ’n’ roll great is its little imperfections and riding on the edge of disaster, knowing full well that any second it could all just fall apart.” – Vinny Piana

In an East London gutter, something deep, primal and most definitely weird is stirring.

Boy From The Crowd Cocktail: take a pinch of heavy blues, mix with some edgy surf rock, shake (don’t stir) with a hefty dose of punk attitude and some good old-fashioned rock n roll swagger. Infuse with tension, blend with menace and you’re starting to get a flavour of the rich and potent firewater served up by Boy From The Crowd.

Boyfromthecrowd started in late 2014 as a duo and is now a 3 piece band signed to Public Pressure Records
