Beat Rhythm FashionBring Real Freedom


The long awaited disc of finely-crafted songs from this much respected and greatly sought after Wellington band. Sweepingly beautiful and thought provoking intelligent music, this disc collects all three singles lovingly restored and remastered, plus 9 tracks from the band's later live set to complete 'The album BRF would have made' if life had played out differently.
'Beings Rest Finally' b/w 'Brings Real Freedom' appeared around mid-1981 on the Bunk label. In an interview in the July 1981 issue of In Touch Dan Birch described 'Beings Rest Finally' as a song about the death of millions: "It's not a sad song musically, it's meant to be a happy sort of lullaby. We wanted something like that Lou Reed song where a guy jumps out of a window and it's not sad or terrible but quite a wonderful, purifying thing."
While BRF were seen by punters and critics alike as being very much a part of the Wellington post-punk underground, the Birch brothers themselves felt somewhat detached from that scene. Coming from what could be considered a cosmopolitan background (they spent most of their youth in Hong Kong), New Zealand in 1981 seemed something of a cultural wasteland by comparison, and they felt little in common with the other bands. The Birch brothers were also part of an event that has subsequently assumed legendary status: a jam session with The Cure in the basement of a Wellington school during their second NZ tour in early August 1981.
