Last of the Light Brigade – Last Laugh

Last of the Light Brigade - Last LaughTen years on since forming as Stratosfear, Guernsey indie-rock three-piece Last Of The Light Brigade released their third album, Last Laugh on Saturday 19th April 2014 with a gig at The Fermain Tavern.

The album was recorded over the previous year and was preceded by singles The Door, Walking Blind, Can’t Go On, You Go On and Stimulator as well as two brief tours of the UK.

Last Laugh also marked a turning point for the band as they bid farewell to their bass player Ben and went on hiatus.

My review was published in The Guernsey Press on Saturday 19th April 2014:
