Vinny Peculiar


Described as 'The Tony Hancock of pop' by UNCUT magazine, Salford-based singer-songwriter and poet Vinny Peculiar (aka Alan Wilkes) grew up in Worcestershire and trained as a nurse before signing to Manchester cult label Ugly Man records. Variously described as – ‘an under sung national treasure’ [UNCUT] – ‘a warm hearted Morrissey’ [Q Magazine] and ‘the missing link between Jarvis Cocker and Roger McGough’ [Irish Times] past work associations include Bill Drummond [KLF], Luke Haines and Jah Wobble [PIL] and his various bands have included ex members of The Smiths, OASIS, Aztec Camera and The Fall. He’s also written and recorded as Parlour Flames, the band he formed in 2013 with ex OASIS rhythm guitarist Bonehead.

'Part Pulp, part Kinks, and very much part Peculiar, this is observational, punk-tinged songwriting at its best.' [HOT PRESS]. 'Vinny Peculiar songs make you laugh and cry and think all at the same time' [TOM ROBINSON BBC 6Music]. ‘A well-measured introduction to an under sung national treasure’ [UNCUT MAGAZINE]. 'Crashing poppily through Vinnys world of nostalgia and insight every song stuffed to the gills with melody and eccentricity, clever, funny and wonderfully weird’. [R2 MAGAZINE].
