PATCHED UP PARACHUTES


LO-FI - ALT - UNPOP





About

The antithesis of the classic music-wannabe, Patched Up Parachutes (Peter Williams) is a genre-ignoring alternative singer/songwriter whose repertoire of original material includes fact-paced punky songs, epic bluesy numbers and gentler introspective songs played on lo-fi electric guitar. A late starter in music, his short time as a performer has culminated in recent support slots with Idlewild's Roddy Woomble, punk band 999 & midlands favourite The Humdrum Express.



"The King of Unpop, Williams fuses lo-fi two minute thrash with blustery blues and endearing self deprecation"
- The Humdrum Express

On selecting me for a support slot in 2014... "You're very welcome in the wondrous world of music! I know talent when I hear it
- Vix Perks (Fuzzbox)
"Salt-of the-Earth honesty and gentle self-deprecation resulted in an infallibly likeable bloke-next-door appeal. We were treated to a delicious selection box of songs, all representing an endearing cross between music, philosophy and observational comedy, with witty, thoughtful and relatable lyrics set against simple yet memorable melodies. There are few artists who could make nods to the everyday worthy of engagement,such as writing a whole song about a somewhat intimidating man with a dog (titled Man and Dog). Williams demonstrated the skill to make the simplest of sentiments and tamest of topics interesting enough to get toes tapping and hearts smiling."
