On Bratya Grim

This is your favourite band. Has been for a while now, so you have decided to come out of the closet.

You only really became aware of them after you left Russia, so you can’t blame it on nostalgia.

They are a Post Soviet group so entirely lack the extra cool that surviving as a rock band under communism lends.

Clearly they do not gain much cool from any other direction either, although someone seems to have had at them with the peroxide bottle as their career has progressed, which can only be a good thing.

B says they are lightweights in the lyrics department, which is about as dismissive as a Russian gets. Although as you really don’t go in much for lyrics, you could care less.

But you do like the music. It cheers you up.

Plus one of their songs includes a rock harpsichord. Not here, you couldn’t find that one. But still. A rock harpsichord. Imagine that. It makes you hug yourself with glee.

  1. You are so right about that. I was wondering who they reminded me of. I had a vaugue thought it might be John Lydon…

    *briefly wrestles with the idea of trying to figure out how to put links neatly into a post and then decides it’s a bit too late for that…*

    But no, they are the Weasley twins. Good call.
