Cross-genre Indie-Rock/PsychFolk/Roots with a hint of Punk & the more avant-garde
>>>BIOGRAPHY: Failed. Kept moving. Your typical starving-artist story. BFA from the Art Institute of Chicago, followed by several years in the Sign Industry. Front man in a multitude of short-lived bands, playing in clubs and warehouses in Chicago and LA's artsy, marginal war-zone neighborhoods. Now solo artist and self-recording. Bought a cheap, old house on Craig's List (without seeing first!) and moved from Chicago to Cincinnati. An "economic refugee", you could say. Now completing the renovations that make four floors of combined living/studio space. >>>INSTRUMENTATION: Guitars, keyboards, voice, computers: William McGuffey Perry >>>DISCOGRAPHY: Includes the self-recorded LP's: Flight Risk, No Bond; Entire Approx; It Can't Be Nighttime Everywhere; Wm. Perry - Draw Your Own Design! >>>INFLUENCES: Bob Dylan, The Fall, The Mekons, Silver Jews, The Clash, The Jazz Butcher, John Cale, Neil Young, Nick Cave, Mott the Hoople, John Prine, Magazine, The Pixies, Robyn Hitchcock, Golden Smog, Pernice Bros., Fatima Mansions, Leon Russell, Microdisney, Elvis Costello, Camper Van Beethoven, Talking Heads, XTC, Bukka White, The Pogues, Screaming Blue Messiahs, Hank Williams, pre-WW2 country blues, and Rockabilly. And of course, the Beatles, Kinks, and Rolling Stones. >>>RECENT PRESS: Young Moss Tongue says "a shitload of jawdroppingly stunning songs" and posts two LP's with more than 600 downloads the first week: http://youngmosstongue.blogspot.com/2011/02/wm-perry-draw-your-own-...http://youngmosstongue.blogspot.com/2011/03/wm-perry-flight-risk-no...
