Make That A Take Records
Billy Liar grew up in the underground punk rock scene, finding his feet and forging his sound through a self-imposed relentless touring schedule, a love of playing live and an understanding that good things do not come to those who wait. Great things come to those who get out on the road and make a hell of a lot of their own mistakes.
Billy has been touring the UK, mainland Europe and America extensively for over ten years, released 7 EPs on independent record labels, had songs played on BBC Radio 1 and XFM and toured Australia and New Zealand. This will be his fourth performance at the Fest in Gainesville, he has also visited Woodford Folk Festival in Australia for a week of performances, played Rebellion Punk Festival in England eight years in a row and even co-wrote, co-directed and starred in a play with Freddy Fudd Pucker at the Edinburgh Festival in Scotland for a month of shows.
In 2018, Billy will release his long-awaited full-band, full-length record, produced by Joe McMahon (Smoke Or Fire) and featuring Robin Guy (Sham 69) on drums.
