Chris Brokaw is playing a FREE show at the Brixton Windmill at 8.45 PM TOMORROW
Codeine/Come/The New Year/The Thurston Moore Band/Dirt Music/Evan Dando Band/Steve Wynn band
Chris Brokaw is one of the hardest working musicians in America and known throughout as a true gentleman. A great guitarist also blessed with a deep soulful songwriting skill and dry smokey voice.
He was a founding member of Codeine; the band that started the Slowcore scene in the late 80’s, then he formed Come with Thalia Zedek, now drums in The New Year, plays guitar for Thurston Moore and Evan Dando and with a wealth of other high achieving acts. Chris Brokaw is a rare humble genius and one of the finest solo artists of our times.
“one of the best performers in the country” Time Out New York
“...ravaged but beautiful beyond belief, reflecting both the dark, blues-strung grief of Come, and the lean-lined, horizon-fixed heft of Codeine...” Time out London
“Brokaw proves himself as an intriguing, highly singular lyricist and vocalist as well as the most mesmerising indie guitarist since The Durutti Column's Vini Reilly.” (4/5 Stars) London Evening Standard
