The Brutalists are a new rock ‘n roll group featuring founding L.A. Guns member Mick Cripps and London Quireboys founder Nigel Mogg. The group is rounded out by guitarist/vocalist Kent Holmes, bassist Robert Cripps and vocalist/drummer Charlie Nice.
Join Nancy J. Reid and Lisa D. Smith, the mother-daughter travel team and publishers of Big Blend Magazines, for a Big Blend Radio conversation with Mick Cripps who talks about The Brutalists, and their self-titled debut album that features a mix of their influences – the dirty, leering blues of pub rock and R&B, the urgency of street punk and the synthesized dance ennui of post-punk, seasoned with bits of ska and reggae. The album is available via Cleopatra Records and on BandCamp. The Brutalists perform regularly in downtown Los Angeles, throughout California and in London.
