Larry Wallis was one of rock’s nearly men. He was a member of UFO for about three weeks in 1972. He adopted the guitarist’s role in the Pink Fairies later in the decade, by which time, the band were arguably past their best. He recorded a riff-based single, ‘Police Car’ for Stiff Records in 1977 that failed to chart. Even in terms of other Stiff product from the time, it’s not always the most celebrated.
The Brains are coming to Europe this summer. The Canadian psychobilly-horrorpunk outfit will be playing six intimate shows in the UK (including one at The Underworld, Camden) between a run of shows in Belgium and Germany.
All confirmed shows are listed below. The Brains release their new LP ‘The Horror Within’ on April 15th.
