Biography

There is more than one band with the name Brick. A funk/jazz band from Atlanta, GA, USA, a hardcore band from Baltimore, MD, USA, a hard rock band from Finland, a noise rock band from Sweden and a death metal band from Saint Paul, MN, USA.

1) Brick was an Atlanta band that created a successful merger of funk and jazz in the ’70s they called “dazz. ” Brick’s roster included lead vocalist/saxophonist/flutist Jimmy Brown; guitarist/bassist/vocalist Regi Hargis Hickman; lead singer Ray Ransom, who doubled as a bassist/keyboardist/percussionist; and Eddie Irons, who did lead vocals and played drums and keyboards. They recorded “Music Matic” for Main Street in 1976, before signing to the CBS-distributed label Bang. Their first Bang single, “Dazz,” topped the R&B charts and was number-three pop in 1976, and they continued on Bang until 1982. Brick scored two more huge hits in 1977, “Dusic” and “Ain’t Gonna’ Hurt Nobody,” each with a chunky, propulsive beat and catchy, light pop-jazz refrain. Their last Top Ten R&B hit was “Sweat (Til You Get Wet)” in 1981.

2) Brick is a hardcore band from Baltimore, Maryland. Featuring ex-members of Get Big, Surroundings, and Summer So Far. Currently, Brick only has a demo that was released in 2008. From bone crushing riffs to intelligent and true lyrics about life’s lessons this band is definitely both a force to be reckoned with and a band to keep an eye on. The band is on tour right now, go see them live. MySpace
