Like a phoenix from the ashes...or at the very least a slightly charred pigeon from a bonfire...one of Brum’s great lost bands The Bourgeois Four have cemented their comeback with the release of brand new album, A Ninth Path.
It’s an ambitiously eclectic collection of, in their words, lo-fi B-Punk ranging from the New Wave-ish Celebrity Body Crisis to the dreamy epicness of The Lighthouse, all 6 minutes and 47 glorious seconds of it. For my money undoubted highlight of the whole shebang though is Meat and Motorways which somehow fuses spunky indie punk a la Young Knives at their finest with almost Sabbath-esque riffage. Now that’s something you’ve not heard B4 eh?
There’s an album launch party at The Station, Kings Heath on Saturday 30th April in aid of Kings Heath Action for Refugees. Tickets just a fiver right here right now AND...wait for it...AND you get a copy of the ruddy album too!
