Jo Mary Short Info

Raised on a diet of musical indulgences from the likes of Beefheart and Velvet Underground whilst trapped on the Wirral Peninsula between the Mersey and the Dee; Jo Mary are currently cultivating a sound. A sound which strays away from the indie nothingness, the white grins and the shit mod aesthetic. Instead they offer up something that sounds like Warhol’s drug parties; a flurried sonic debauchery soaked in a generous helping of fuzz which makes the eyes dilate and the body slump. The whirring riff driven tour de force of Jo Mary is an unstoppable power.
Having found themselves at the heart of the Wirral music scene the band have found fans in the likes of The Sundowners, The Coral and Bill Ryder Jones (with lead singer Sam and bassist Mike appearing in the ‘Two to Birkenhead’ video). In the age old Wirral tradition the boys look back for inspiration but leave the harmonies and acoustic guitar behind preferring the mad, the bad and the ugly.
