BRAKES – Cease & Desist (7″ Single)

Rough Trade RTRADS391: 26th February 2007
1. Cease & Desist
“Now can’t you hear the angels crying, their songs of love are now songs of dying”
2. We Saw Jerry’s Daughter
“We were walkin’ down the road at night, brothers and sisters were goin’ nowhere, peace and love were not around, trouble and strife was everywhere”
3. Huevos Rancheros
“I got a bird that whistles, honey got a bird, honey got a bird that sings”

‘Cease & Desist’ fuses bits from ‘Paperback Writer’ with Brakes’ own brand of aggressive Punk-Pop to tell the tale of God playing poker against Satan and losing.  ‘We Saw Jerry’s Daughter’ is a cover of Camper Van Beethoven remade in the style of Pixies.  ‘Huevos Rancheros’ is an all too brief forty-seven second thrasher that rocks as hard as anybody.  This is from a band that had two songs on their debut album that clocked in under ten seconds each.
