It must be a day for great band names. Following our Slug Guts post come the equally magnificently named Brother Gruesome and their second 7″ release For the Morphine Makes You Comfortable.
We have the A side for you, Tubes is a song about hearing a loved one speak their final words over a telephone. The B Side, Needles, makes reference to the chemical side of dying and the inebriated self-reflection of a stick ‘n’ poke tattoo session. The superb 7″ cover art depicts this complex entanglement of musical ambition and deteriorating health.
Musically distinctive with an open-tuned electric guitar that swirls out of two amps and a sound that has evolved from their dark folk roots, Brother Gruesome have delivered a cracking record for your repeated listening pleasure.
You can purchase this vinyl gem from Nice People for $7 here.
