Noisy rock from south London foursome named after Hugh Grant's BJ buddy
As they’ve been gigging with The Hives, D4 and The Datsuns, you may have expected The Divine Brown to be receiving awards and chart attention. However, their loud guitars and angry rhythms aren’t as easily packaged. Larry Loud’s singing may be more Sham 69 than Stooges but the band know how to write a three-minute punk anthem. Neither subtle nor original, but on songs like “Superlive 45” TDB sound like a cool, vibrant band.
