Devizes based post-punk band Browfort have filmed a proper video! Simon Goodman, has been working hard on videos for local bands, and recently shot a lovely wee video for Audrey Tietz, which you can see on his Youtube channel, but this video, his first proper for any local act, is the real deal.
The video starts as a take-the-piss out of Jeremy Kyle, duly dubbed the Jeremy Vile show… with excellent cameos from Laura Kearley and Tim, Browforts bald frontman. Cue some solid drums that kick in, and a very poppy refrain from the band. It’s 3 and a half minutes of pure post punk rock – the ability to mix Joy Division style downer indie with Pistols attitude and some added alt pop, and you got an addictive and potent mix.
Despite the band being on the mature side, they are producing relevant music that their peers 6 albums in to their career would give their right arms for. Songs like “Bring Me The Head Of The Editor Of The NME”, not only a tongue twister, but a relevant stab at the downward spiral the NME has taken over the past ten years, joins a list of other such quality songs poking fun at poignant subjects.
Here is said video, and if you’re in a band and want a video, Simon is taking commissions – just send him a message over youtube.
Browfort will be releasing a free EP soon, available from their Bandcamp, the track listing is still yet to be confirmed, but the songs that don’t make the album will feature on the EP.
The bands next show is a week today, Thursday 2nd June at The Southgate, Devizes. Supporting Nigel Clark, frontman o f 90’s indie band Dodgy. They have been told to rein it in, and not exceed their 30 minute slot. They hit the stage at 9pm promt.
