The Rock-itt : January 2010
The five member well known band called 'Bagster' who supported Real Big Fish on two National Tours, amongst the likes of Goldfinger and Guttermouth , supported Pennywise, and Canadian band Billy Talent are now a tight 3 member heavy punk rock band called 'Brother'. Gone is the brass that 'Bagster' used as their trademark to a different sound the remaining three members have longed to play. Now 'Muse' guitar riffs and metal like bridges tie up great sounding different music. The songs are epic tales told with energetic musical compositions influenced by punk, metal and rock. Mitchell Johnson on drums, Koby Geddes on vocals and guitar, and Paul Anderson on bass is all that's needed to create their masterpieces. 'Brother' influences include a background of Punk Rock bands such as Bad Religion, NoFX, and Propaganda, Metal influences such as Sikth and Opeth, and healthy rock influences such as Muse and Baroness. 'Brother' have just come back from a Melbourne tour delivering the new sound to packed audiences. Known well to the Melbourne scene as Bagster, they were a little uncertain about how their new music would be accepted. Their fears were unrealised as the crowd responded well to each new song played and were hungry for the free CD's 'Brother' threw to the crowds at the end of each show. 'Brother' played three gigs on this Melbourne tour, starting on the Friday night at Birmingham Hotel along with a well known Melbourne band, 'The Statics' (pop/rock). An in store appearance at "Fist to Face" enabled Brother to pass out more free CD's to promote their new sound to the passing crowds. A final gig at Bang Nightclub in Melbourne (similar to 'Hot Dam' on a Thursday night at Spectrum nightclub on Oxford Street in Sydney), supporting "Bombs Away' cemented their new arrival on the Melbourne scene as 'Brother'. 'Brother' plan to record demo CDs over the next 12 months in preparation for a longer production of a 20 song CD with Sunline Studios. They will continue their tours to Melbourne, the Gold Coast and Brisbane as well as playing regular gigs here in Sydney. 'Brother' have enough new music to do a 35 minute set, and if the response by the Melbourne crowd is any indication you should try to get to one of their gigs here in Sydney. You can see them at the Landsowne on Broadway, Adgen Court Hotel Broadway, Oxford Tavern in Wollongong or the Sandringham in Newtown.
