PET NEEDS “Punk isn’t Dead (It’s Just up for Sale)”

Founded in Colchester by brothers George and Johnny Marriott, PET NEEDS are the band Britain needs right now. With a clutch of anti-anthems inspired by the disastrous job interviews, self-destruction and river journeys on inflatable kayaks that have defined their lives, their idiosyncratic lyrics and an effusive spirit have seen them rise through the ranks with lightning speed. With a line up also featuring Jack (drums) and Rich (bass), the four-piece have shared stages with the likes of The Hives, Frank Turner, Muncie Girls, Buzzcocks, Maximo Park, PiL and The Undertones and impressed audiences at several major festivals.

Forced off the road in 2020, PET NEEDS took it as a sign to complete their long awaited debut: Fractured Party Music which finally arrived in 2021 to widespread praise from titles including Dork, Vive Le Rock, NARC, Punktastic, Noizze Mag and more, with radio plays from national stations inc. BBC6 Music.
