Album: My Best Unbeaten Brother – Pessimistic Pizza

Finally! The debut mini-album from My Best Unbeaten Brother, is out via Audio Antihero. Three men from Croydon. Former Nosferatu D2 / Superman Revenge Squad / Tempertwig / The Jonbarr Hinge.

I wrote about singles here so I will not repeat myself:

Here is a quote from Ben Parker (Guitar & Vocals) about the album: “Seven songs by three men from Croydon. Inspired by getting older, getting sadder, getting angrier with a post-Brexit world where The Smiths have been ruined by the actions of the ex-singer. Learning to let go; learning to be Spider-Man; trying to understand The Fall; trying to understand life and death, and trying to understand records by The Steve Miller Band.” 

I’ve been eagerly anticipating the release of this debut mini-album and intentionally refrained from listening to it before the release date so I could share the experience with others. This album is an exuberant piece of post-punk indie rock that really grabs your attention and gets you pumped. The artists pour their emotions into every track, and I’m thoroughly enjoying it.

Lately, I’ve been hearing a lot about the challenges faced by musicians in post-Brexit Britain, and it’s disheartening. In fact, we’ve noticed a significant drop in orders from the UK since Brexit, which is quite disappointing considering it used to be one of our top markets. Brexit was a setback then, and it continues to be one now. I genuinely hope for a future where our British friends can once again be part of the European community.

In the meantime, I highly recommend listening to this album as it captures the current spirit of Britain. Every song on this album is remarkable, and I can’t wait to listen to them repeatedly. The album’s energy is so compelling that anyone who listens to it will be drawn back to it time and time again.

For me one of the best albums of this summer.
