Lucas Perny (also Lukáš Perný; born 1991) is a Slovak drummer-composer, culturologist-cultural critic and political activist. His musical style has been described as psychedelic, avant-garde and conceptual. At the age of 14 he received the first set of drums from his father, Milan Perny, who was also a drummer. Initially taught by his father, Perny was learning music by mimicking the style of Ringo Starr, John Densmore, Mitch Mitchell, Christian Vander, Robert Wyatt and Jaki Liebezeit.

An edited and extended version of his thesis on 1960s counterculture was published in book form in 2014 as "Music counterculture at the break of 1960s and 1970s in the culturological perspective" (Slovak: Hudobná kontrakultúra na prelome šesťdesiatych a sedemdesiatych rokov 20. storočia v kulturologickej perspektíve I.). His second monography Cultural revolution of Ladislav Novomesky was published in 2017. He also frequently publishes articles on culture, art, philosophy, left wing politics and cultural anthropology in various journals and portals notably in "Studia Politica Slovaca" published by Slovak Academy of Sciences, but also in Slovo left wing literary weekly.

Since 2011 Perny has played with Miloslav Kollar and they released their début album, Astral Gate. In 2013 Perny recorded experimental album The Rondel with special guest artists. The title of the album refers to neolithic circular enclosures found throughout Central Europe, which were also the topic of Perny's scientific thesis at UKF. The Rondel was presented at Rádio FM in September 2013. In March 2015 Perny organized a scientific conference for the 110th anniversary of the birth of Slovak poet and communist politician, Ladislav Novomeský.
