Noughties By Nature #18: Brakes – Cheney

On holiday in New York with a mate, looking for a band to see. I want to go and see The Besties, he wants to see Brakes. I’d just finished explaining how a band formed by the spare drummer in BSP were unlikely to be great, when we realised the venues were next door to each other and we could do both.

Brakes are good, then they play Cheney and i’m hooked.

If you are trying to make a point don’t faff around and include some cryptic line in the third verse, just tell us what you think and move on (or play it again). “Cheney, Cheney, Cheney, Cheney, Cheney, Cheney, stop being such a dick.” Eleven seconds of perfection. Point made, there is no need for anymore. And it reminds me of Napalm Death.
