9am - Dick York & The Originals

In the mid 1976 as Punk Rock exploded in the UK, Dick York bought a guitar, began writing songs and formed his first band..... Sta Prest
Sta Prest began playing shows and signed a management deal with the legendary Ronnie Scotts Agency in London. Sta Prest toured the UK, Europe and Canada and after much courting from major labels, such as EMI and Polydor, signed a Recording Contract with Avatar Records and Screenworks.
Sta Prest became linked to the post punk Mod Revival movement and played alongside bands like Secret Affair, The Purple Hearts and Merton Parkas; releasing their only single, "School Days" in 1979. The single never got the success it deserved, but now is considered to be the song that defined the 'Mod Revival' and is a sought after rarity with collectors and revivalists. Dick left Sta Prest in 1980 and formed Cry Dyaan with a young drummer called Vom Ritchie.
During the years with Cry Dyaan Dick honed his song writing skills and the band were celebrated as ‘the band to watch’ in 1982 when the won the 'UK Band of the Year' promoted by BBC Radio One. However, the band was dogged by poor management and broken promises and in 1983 Dick decided to get a 'proper job' ....... Vom continued in Music playing with Doctor and The Medic (Spirit in the Sky) then moving to Germany to join the European Punk Rock super group "Die Toten Hosen"In 2008 Vom contacted Dick and persuaded him to start his music career again. Dick and Vom formed a band called Cryssis and again Dick wrote a collection of songs and the band have found great success in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Cryssis released two albums ‘Simple Men’ and ‘Kursaal Nights’ and have toured with The Drop Kick Murphy’s, Frank Turner and Die Artze. Their 3rd Album "1976" is due out in August 2017 and the band plan to undertake a European tour in early 2018.In addition to his work with Cryssis, Dick also began a recording project with Producer Gareth Young. The result of the collaboration is Dick's first solo album entitled 'Yesterday's Boys' by Dick York and Originals (Vom Ritchie guests on the album along with Steve Smart, Clive Kemp and Jay Harrison) The Album is due to be released on 24th June 2017 when Dick York & The Originals support The Undertones at the Northumbria Live Festival. Dick York & The Originals will tour as the support on the European leg of Peter and the Test Tube Babies World Tour in December 2017.
