PCY began in the early noughties when a mutual love for West Coast Americana, Crosby Stills Nash & Neil Young plus the Byrds, Gram Parsons and John Hiatt mixed in with late 60’s beat groups like The Hollies and John, Paul, George and Ringo brought the three together for some memorable shows around Melbourne's more infamous traps.
PCY did one of their first gigs at the Clifton Hill Hotel on September 11 2001 as the television screens in the front bar revealed the shocking footage of the Twin Tower attacks in New York.
Not wishing their 3 part harmony soaked acoustic renditions of their favourite country, soul and blues songs be a soundtrack to the horror being shown, the trio joined the audience in silence trying to fathom the ongoing carnage.
After many musical adventures PCY are back for one show only at the Flying Saucer in November with old favourites and new songs including their showstopping version of Crosby Stills and Nash’s “Suite Judy Blue Eyes”.
Spaniards formed in 1983 after a suggestion by keyboard player Mark Mannock who had worked with Mick Pealing's Ideals and Billy Miller's Great Blokes that the two front men get together and see what happens.
The yin and yang combination worked and with the addition of future "Electric Mary" frontman Russell Brown on bass and legendary drummer John Annas, a formidable team of singers, musicians and songwriters took to the stage with a vengeance.
The band were together for 3 years releasing the charting singles "God Is Shield" produced by Molly Meldrum, "What Can I Do For You" and "Angel"
With numerous appearances on Countdown and sellout residencies at infamous venues like The Prospect Hill Hotel and The Venue in St Kilda Spaniards also supported Tina Turner on her Private Dancer tour plus Katrina and the Waves on their Walking On Sunshine tour.
Spaniards never officially split up and have returned recently to the stage to sell out audiences and are making their debut at the celebrated Caravan Club in Oakleigh on the 28th of April.
