sad. earl brutus were one of the most mental live bands i ever did see.
and indeed gave XRRF the tipoff. We need more bands like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yi_mTvH4HMI
I was listening to EB just today..what happened?
This has made me so sad.
i saw them live once and they had a spinning sign on stage saying 'Music' on one side and 'Chips' on the other. really sad about this.
Very sad news, EB were tremendous and possibly the only band to pull off that sort of silly deflated lagered-up aggression successfully. Chiefly by being very funny and very aware.
Him and Gordon King from EB were both in World of Twist too, another great lost band. I'll have a listen to both tonight.
I wrote about it on my blog and someone contacted me to say that Earl Brutus were planning to reform and play again before Nick's illness. A real star has been lost to us.
