Brakes stop by


BRIGHTON'S Brakes third album Touchdown lands on Monday, a credit to the group who were left out in the cold by Rough Trade.
Now put out by FatCat, the latest from the 'supergroup', as you can imagine from a group which is laced with Electric Soft Parade, The Tenderfoot and British Sea Power connections, is a proficient collection of indie rockers.
However, with a few exceptions such as stomper Hey Hey and current single Don't Take Me To Space (Man), their schtick rarely raises the bar compared to previous work.
So if you're a fan, then Brake yourself - but otherwise there's no shame in letting it pass you by.
