THE LOW-DOWN Af­ter Mona, Slough four-piece Brother will be the big new rock band of next year. They have been all the talk of the in­die un­der­ground for a few months now and were get­ting stupid money of­fers from la­bels even be­fore they had their own web­site up and run­ning. They spe­cialise in a type of 1960s garage rock leav­ened with in­die pop touches. Lis­ten­ing to them, it’s clear that this is a young band who were brought up on a diet of Brit­pop, but they’ve given that genre a good kick­ing and added in some fresh in­gre­di­ents. I saw them play live in a dingy club a while back and they were damn near the fin­ished prod­uct. And they’re a bit gobby too – which al­ways helps.
