Brown Brogues: British Music Abroad
Brown Brogues are a two piece band from Wigan making music like Muddy Waters brought up in the industrial wastelands of provincial Lancashire. One beats drums, the other holds his guitar high, and together they make dirty noise rock, underpinned with trash, bitterness and loathing.
The band have been performing live for approximately one year, but interest and the number of gigs has increased dramatically in the past 5 months. The band played at In The City 2010 and Cardiff’s Swn festival and have had a number of high profile support slots.
The band receives a lot of attention from blogs and the alternative press and since the summer have become one of the most hotly-tipped unsigned bands in the UK. The band released a sold-out cassette tape in August and in January will release a 7″ single.
