Album Notes
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.

Gig Organiser/DJ/Promoter/Reviews
With a real sense of workin' class roots, this four-piece punk/skank band offers us a collection of vocally witty, fast paced morsal of tracks covering things im sure we all can relate to, ie: eating trees, not wakin up ya dad and being 21 again. Sounds like: Stranglers/Clash Etc...Trees starts off ambiently breakin into guitar and pacey drum, the vocal witt is instantly....funny, back 2 basics rhyme...Shurrup brought back mems of sneakin me mates in n out when i was a lad...hovis music begins...and 21 again well made me wanna be.........17? Morsals are never enough though this trail of crumbs better lead ta some more cookies...

Any demo that starts with a song about eating trees has got to be worth a listen. This is one such demo, the opening track tells the tale of a man who likes to eat, wait for it, trees, 'I've got a disease, I can't stop eating trees.' It's at this point that I begin to form what is to be an ever changing opinion of the band. At the end of the first track entitled 'Trees' (bet that took a while!) they seem like another bunch of museos trying to be funny and failing with unoriginal 'wacky' lyrics. By the third song, '21 Again' things take a turn for the better as ace melodies begin to emanate from the speakers. They begin to resemble something like what The Smiths would have sounded like if they had a sense of humour. Mixtures of punk drum beats and modesque guitar riffs mix with the moody keyboards to create what turns out to be a great demo.

Classic Brit Punk CD with Memorable And Funny Lyrics
“Welcome to Murraysville” is a Brit punk album from Phil Murray and the Boys from Bury. Most of the album takes on the simplistic, classic punk rock sound with Ramones-style three chord progressions. However, it also incorporates the organ, hand claps and intense guitar solos that draw from pop rock, blues and rockabilly. Murray’s vocals are very British and styled similarly to contemporary artist Art Brut, as well as likely influences The Ramones, The Clash, and The Smiths. PM&tBfB’s lyrics are original, humorous and often about life (and “Rainy Nights”) in Rotherham; their Northern England home town. “Welcome to Murraysville” is well-produced, intentionally giving the album that gritty punk rock sound of its predecessors. “Average Day” shows the band’s musicianship as it opens with a great bass line that is soon after matched by the guitar. “High Visibility Packamac” is a humorous song about people who drive Jettas and play Yu-Gi-Oh. The catchy chorus says it all; “He wears a high visibility packamac/With security written on the back.” “17 Stone,” “I Can’t Stop Eating Trees,” and “Dying Turtle” are also rather hilarious, pouring memorable lyrics atop that classic punk rock sound. “Welcome to Murraysville” is a packed album that does not let up until we’re all on our backs doing the “Dying Turtle.” Fans of that classic Brit punk sound with a sense of humor should check out Phil Murray and the Boys from Bury.
