As Brown Brogues shrugged their shoulders and began making a racket to an empty room. As the drums began pounding and feedback erupted it awakened the senses in those near by and people ascended from all corners. Even before the first vocal arrived people were bouncing about and nodding along. Brown Brogues are a band who many would compare to The White Stripes not only because they are a drum and vocal duo but they make rhythm and blues sleazy rock and roll music.the rain pissed down on a Thursday evening in the Shackelwell Arms (literally)
Hailing from Manchester the pair have crafted some very catchy and impressive songs like ‘Don’t touch my Hair’ which rumbles and explodes sounding like old time blues amped up and fucked up. Mark Vernon’s vocals are screamed through a harmonica microphone making them distorted and sound uber sexy. It’s simple stuff, the drummer only has a snare, floor tom and crash, it’s old school and they belt out music that makes the hips move. They’re not the new White Stripes, they’re modern day garage jive!
We suggest you catch these guy soon. Brown Brogues….it’s where it’s at.
