Brakes

Give Blood CD

Brakes formed when Tom and Alex White (The Electric Soft Parade) and Eamon Hamilton (British Sea Power) were drinking after Eamon had supported The Lonesome Organist at Palmer's Bar in Brighton in August 2002. "We'll play drums and guitar on your tunes," they said. "Rad," said Eamon. They went to Mokinbird studios, a rehearsal/recording space in Kemptown, Brighton run by Marc Beatty (The Tenderfoot), and convinced him to play bass. After half an hour, they looked at each other and said "this sounds freshmode." Their fantastic debut album Give Blood is the sound of four friends playing music in a room, recorded on to tape, and features vocals from the fabulous Pipettes and Liela Moss of The Duke Spirit. "It's only 29 minutes. And they're an indie 'supergroup' featuring Eamon from British Sea Power! What else? There's a sun-dappled cover of The Jesus and Mary Chain's 'Sometimes Always,' "Ring a Ding Ding' sounds like a fuzz-toned Roxy music, Eamon's voice is the spit of Frank Black and they drone like Clinic at their most evil. The Duke Spirit's Leila Moss even sings a bleedin' Johnny Cash cover. Pretty much perfect." --Time Out
