Are/were great and wrote super pop songs. Discuss.
And they had a fat old man drummer when I last saw them. Also great.
but I liked the one that went "and when I needed someone to talk to, you were the only one around" off the 1st album. TOP
Mat Priest, formerly/currently of Dodgy. Nice chap.
would have been Math Priest out of Dodgy.
Writing as someone whose adjudication of their first album pissed Tom White off, which is the reason why I've never plucked up the courage to talk to him despite seeing him mingling at least five times during every festival Brakes play at that I'm also at, I reckon this year's No Need To Be Downhearted is their best album.
I loved the 1st album. Couldn't care less about em now though
but the first 2 are very good !
and they're in brakes now, so they've got an excuse for being a bit mediocre.
