The Purple Gang are a British rock band active intermittently since the 1960s. Although they were associated with the London psychedelic scene, they originated in Stockport, then in Cheshire, as The Young Contemporaries jugband. The band adopted the name, The Purple Gang, when they changed their image to the well-dressed, clean-cut "gangster" style in the 1960s.

The Purple Gang were more '60s jug band revivalists than they were anything else, but they have sometimes been lumped into the psychedelic scene due to the company they kept. Formed in Stockport Art College in England in the mid-'60s, they found a deal with the British folk label Transatlantic, who referred them to producer Joe Boyd. This setback contributed to the Purple Gang breaking up after just a couple of singles and one album (which included those singles), Strikes. Actually, much of the LP was standard good-time jug band music, rather reserved even by the standards of '60s jug band revivalism, though it was entirely comprised of original compositions. The only psychedelic thing about the Purple Gang was their milieu. They found their largest audience, for whatever reason, in the underground rock crowd, including the one at the UFO, where the "Granny Takes a Trip" single would often be played.

The Purple Gang's sole record is an oddity, not comfortably fitting into any of the scenes - folk, folk-rock, psychedelia - with which some historians have associated it. Actually, it's moderately engaging, moderately modernized jug band music, quite mild even compared to the better revivalists of the style in the 1960s, like Jim Kweskin or Dr. West's Medicine Show & Junk Band
