Slough’s finest band Brother forced to change their name to Viva Brother

© Viva BrotherJust when you thought Slough’s Oasis-aping bunch of inadvertent comedy geniuses couldn’t get any funnier, you’re wrong. Their botched attempts at guerrilla gigging in Slough might have proven they had less gumption than a local council paper shuffler, but now they’ve had to rename themselves after losing a legal battle with a ‘powerhouse celtic tribal trio’ based in USA. But then said trio do combine ‘the deep pulse of the didgeridoo, the soaring highs of the bagpipes and tribal percussion’. Brother’s new name? ‘Viva Brother’, which is a bit of a wasted opportunity. We’d have gone for something more befitting of their career path like ‘Oh, Brother’ or ‘Brother Can You Spare A Dime?’. Got any better ideas? Leave your comments below.
