MAD BUTCHER 80’s German Revival: THE BRACES “Prime Cut” & “Blue Flame” LP

THE BRACES were part of the first wave of amazing post-2-TONE German bands, but (in our option) had a more pop oriented songwriting style that set them apart from “harder” edged bands like No Sports, Blechreitz, Skaos, or The Frits. Songs on their debut “PRIME CUT” (Unicorn Records) have stood the test of time, specifically “Julie Julie” and “Her Smile Means Nothing” which we played to death on our radio show back in the day!  A couple years later they returned with their follow up “BLUE FLAME” on Pork Pie Records.
