About this item
Formed in Manchester in January 2007, The Great Fury 'deliver a catchy brand of garage rock/blues inspired music, singing songs of modern love, classic cocktails, Orwellian visions and political views' (VMan Events). The Great Fury name encapsulates 'the media and government escalating certain situations for their own ends, so therefore is a cause of a great fury to them' (David Cross). Bridging a Liverpool and Manchester rivalry, David and Adam forged a musical bond after a chance discussion at a local gig where a rhythm section drawn from Portsmouth and a Yorkshire provided the pulse of a new sound. The band's pedigree has meant that previous incarnations have supported the likes of The Mystery Jets, Babyshambles, The Black Keys and The Cribs, and early reviews likened the sound to a 'dirty take on the Arctic Monkeys perhaps, very similar as far as vox and lyrics go... Libertines and Jamie T fans my also be tickled pink' (Bugbear Bookings).
