Exclusive Interview with BROTHER - It's Our Time Now!
We asked Brother's frontman Lee Newell about the "argument" he had with Liam Gallagher in the media and about their new anthem which they think might be as big as the all time great Oasis classic Live Forever.....
We’re Going To Bring Guitar Music Back!If timing is everything in music, Brother might just be on to something. At a time when any young music fan usually needs to trawl down somewhere far below the Top 40 to find traces of where the latest band trying to make an impact can be found, and needs to delve back at least a decade to find the last group of musicians who dared to suggest they could change your life, these four young dreamers, who initially longed simply to break free of the industrial clutches of their hometown Slough, now have a bored generation wondering if they might just be the band to re-awaken rock n roll from its prolonged slumber.
‘We’re going to bring guitar music back’, frontman Lee Newell told Live4ever during our first encounter back in November, immediately demonstrating the self-assurance and confidence which has played a big part in helping Brother to stand out from the crowd, and which was on full beam during their first ever US gig at the recent SXSW Festival, when the band confidently told a venue packed full of crossed-armed industry types almost screaming ‘come on then, impress me’ that they had ‘definitely made the right choice’.
A week on from that first gig, we sat down with Lee, Josh, Sam and Frank shortly before their gig at New Jersey’s famous Maxwell’s venue to discuss both their past and hopes for the future, the ‘song of the next 20 years’ which might just light up their hotly-anticipated debut album, and their surprisingly understated dream rider.
It’s a 30 minute exclusive chat which shows that if Brother go on to attain even half of what they feel destined to achieve, rock n roll won’t just be awoken, it’ll be dragged out of bed kicking and screaming, strapped to the nearest sports car, and taken on a pretty eventful journey. Is everyone ready for the ride?
