Pickup Name


In 2009, Don Yanek (drums) offered to help Al Hennagir (guitar) set up a cheap drum set in his basement. After a quick tune-up, they bashed out a few Feelies covers to test out the kit. Don apparently liked what he heard — a week later he set up his ’60s Ludwig Champagne Sparkle kit in Al’s basement. It’s been there ever since.

Eventually Al convinced Don to recruit Erik Trojnar (Swedish Cowboys, Avocet) to sit in on bass. Turns out he too shared a love for The Feelies, The Vulgar Boatmen, Neil Young, The Meat Puppets, and Yo La Tengo. They also share an affinity for smoked meats, fancy beer, and cheap beer. They dubbed themselves The Purcells and played gigs at Schuba’s Tavern, Cole’s, Lizard’s Liquid Lounge, Abbey Pub, and lots of summer BBQs.

The Purcells just released their first full length, “Words Can't Say,” in December. The LP was mixed by Pat Stolley (futureappletree) and mastered by Mike Hagler (Kingsize Soundlabs). It's currently available for streaming and purchase on Bandcamp and will be released on vinyl in March.
