“Brother is about the platonic love you have with your friends (sex is forbidden). It's about sharing and having things in common. The ups and downs, of course - about who buys more rounds of drinks than the others. It's a dry orgy, that's all it is.”
Currently in the process of recording their third album, after their acclaimed 2015 debut Hi-Fi Classics (having opted out of recording a second record to avoid the dreaded ‘difficult second album’ syndrome), ‘Brother’ is a continuation of the engrossing, yet unpredictable and hard-to-pin-down intelligence of the South London band’s output.
The origins of the band are lost in obscurity and legend, with some believing they are the result of a drunken afternoon shared by Mutado Pintado (Warmduscher, Paranoid London) and Zsa Zsa Sapien in a Wetherspoon pub, with their original concept being to actually host a Meat Raffle; evidence found in the fact that pigs’ heads and raffle tickets are visible in early photos of the band.
