The Mighty 'Brew
Posted: 19th December 2011
The second album arrives from these local legends.
Back once again with ten blasts of good, old fashioned street punk, Homebrew are calling Last Orders, in part because at one point this looked like being their final album (Dave was due to move abroad with work, putting the band on hiatus - something which has now been put off) in part a reference to the number of pubs that seem to be closing, running themselves down or just plain struggling in this current economic climate.
Of course that climate hasn't effected the band. It took them 14 long years to come up with their debut album, The Heart of Insurrection, and yet this arrives only 2 years later - certainly a sign that the band are bordering on prolific in their old age... Or perhaps, in true punk rock tradition, they just needed a Conservative government under which to really find their rage?
The album is once again a split with Boss Tuneage's punked-up little brother, X-Fist Records and the band will be playing a shit load of gigs in the new year to support it.
Up the punks!
