Brat Farrar and Blackup will join forces and tour Europe again.
Brat Farrar, one half of Digger and the Pussycats, one third of Kamikaze Trio, just released III. His third record, simply untitled like its predecessors. Like its sisters this record is all guns blazing and shifts effortlessly from punk to shoegaze and other far-reaching places. Songs are at the fore on this one, mainly being about miscommunication, unrequited love and the odd missed moment here and there.
In case you haven’t heard, the Brat Farrar sound is reminiscent of early Wipers, Chrome, The Spits, Suicide, a bit like MBV (well just the guitars) on a few tracks and sometimes like power pop bands recorded incorrectly.
