Tonight we've got the wonderful Brakes in session our second Brighton band of the week. They're promoting the release of their new live album Rock Is Dodelijk.

Their live set is notorious for its rambunctious energy and ear-splitting immediacy. Hand-picked by Brakes partly from a hometown (Brighton, UK) show in August 2008, and partly from a May 2009 show in Cologne, Germany.

The band have released 2 albums on Rough Trade Records, 2005's 'Give Blood' and 2006's 'The Beatific Visions'. Brakes are now with FatCat and, in 2009, releases studio album number 3 'Touchdown'.
