First release for the electric band line-up since 1998
London band Bromideâ€™s new album â€˜I Rememberâ€™ is a nostalgic rollercoaster ride round the icons of scuffed up fuzzy guitar pop. Thereâ€™s nods to 80s hardcore heroes Husker Du, the yearning melodies of Teenage Fanclub, the gymnastic pop/rock straddling of The Only Ones and even mid-70s Top of the Popster Steve Harley gets a look in on lead track â€˜Wheelsâ€™.
Elsewhere there are encounters with rediscovered jazz legends and whimsical buskers â€˜Henry Grimesâ€™, the tale of a teenage quest for the seeds of flower power â€˜Lion Tamerâ€™s Jacketâ€™ and in the title track â€˜I Rememberâ€™ an array or early musical memories assembled in a dream sequence show and tell. Magnetic Fields get a good going over as well with a Les Paul friendly re-working of their classic 'I don't want to get over you'.
At the helm is legendary producer Brian Oâ€™Shaughnessy (Primal Scream, MBV) dispensing an economy to proceedings thatâ€™s got Robert Pollard checking his stopwatch.
Bromide are - Simon Berridge (Guitar/Vocals), Ed Lush (Drums) and Hugo Wilkinson (Bass/Backing vocals)
â€œRomping, indie-pop blast that recalls the heyday of The Only Onesâ€ The Times
â€œLike an ultra loud cross between Dinosaur Jr and The Lemonheadsâ€Â Kerrang
