    A rare example of an obscure band who fucking deserved their obscurity.

    One of my favourite début albums of 2011 - shame there won't be a follow-up to it. Honestly though, Viva Brother were incredible live - won't be forgetting their Reading and Leeds set any time soon - turned my nose up at Muse to see them; and it was worth it. 'Still Here' #nowplaying.

    “We’re already polarising opinion massively. People might think we’re arrogant, but it’s just belief. We know how amazing we are. And soon everyone else will.” hahaha. double lol at them for comparing themselves with the smiths. bye bye lad rockers. you go the same way as the metros. good riddance.
