INTERVIEW | Brawlers at The Garage, Islington

Are Brawlers just a bunch of dudes who love beer and making music? If you’ve ever seen them live, you’d probably answer that question with a yes.

“Pert shit himself a few days ago, that’s quite cool.” Laughs front-man Harry Johns. “We went to Glasgow. We thought a Buckybomb was a shot of Jåger in a pool of Buckfast. It’s not. So we were at the Nice and Sleazys drinking 5 or 6 of these each, [and] started not being able to see. This girl came over and was like “What are you doing? We’ve been watching you for an hour being morons”… So then everything went pretty weird, and everything got a bit shouty and the next day we woke up, had to drive to the next show.
