have you guys read the pitchfork review of their cd?
The Bravery will tell you they don't know of any nu-rock revival. They just happen to like wearing leather jackets and having their gaunt faces photographed in elevators. Their idea to combine new wave, garage rock, and dance music just popped into their head, because, hey, what if rock bands started doing that? The Bravery aren't fooling anybody: They fit the post-new wave blueprint so immaculately, they're one power chord away from securing a gig at the 2005 VMA's between their rivals the Killers and Razorlight. So here come the Bravery-- hi-hats, synthesizers, mop-tops, ennui, and all.
love it! exactly what i thought when watching the video for "an honest mistake"
i saw them opening for ash in march, and would love to see them again, cos i thought they were great live...also would like to see the (international) noise conspiracy. however, my wallet will not let me
AND in unrelated news, i just found out bauhaus is coming!
saw them at HOmelands last may and they sucked ass, like really sucked, the tent they were playing in cleared out, but Groove Armada, Jazzy Jeff, the Scratch Perverts and Andy C were all playing during their set
