Viva Brother

Bloody typical, innit? You're just about to strike a perfect balance between NME-stoked hype and general public loathing for your substandard Britpop revivalist schtick when, out of the blue, some jumped-up Celtic rock band from Australia with nearly a dozen albums under their belt slap you with a writ because they came up with the band name first. Serves you right for calling yourselves 'Brother', sillies. We like to imagine that the Slough quartet took inspiration from Coldplay's last album when they were picking their new moniker, though it's probably just because they'd been whistling 'Live Forever' all day long. Their debut album, Famous First Words, drops at the start of August, with former Blur producer Stephen Street at the dials.
