BRAND NEW BRAND
All-star power pop rock act The Crunch release their sensational second album. After winning critical acclaim for the compelling mix of pop hooks and punk grit on debut 'Busy Making Noise', vocalist Sulo Karlsson (Diamond Dogs), guitarist Mick Geggus (Cockney Rejects), bassist Dave Tregunna (Sham 69) and drummer Terry Chimes (The Clash) wasted no time recording the follow-up. The new record retains and builds upon many of the hallmarks established on 'Busy Making Noise'; most notably an enviable knack for huge, power-pop hooks, and massive, memorable blasts of melody. 'Brand New Brand' also brings another crop of evocative slowburners. One standout is the immense 'Save The Glow', which swells from an understated, semi-acoustic opening, into a swaying, lighters-aloft anthem.
