Pub rock legend BRINSLEY SCHWARZ has a new video which he's launching exclusively with Vive Le Rock!

Guitarist, singer and keyboard-player Schwarz gave his name to the band Brinsley Schwarz, also featuring Nick Lowe, when they morphed out of pop band Kippington Lodge at the end of the 60s. Darlings of the thriving early-70s London pub rock scene, they released six albums during their lifetime, along with the classic single 'What's So Funny About Peace, Love And Understanding'. They split up in '75 with Schwarz joining The Rumour to back Graham Parker, with who he's collaborated on and off for the past forty years.

New single 'Storm In The Hills', a commentary on climate change, politics and modern times, is taken from Schwarz's second solo album Tangled, due out later in the year through Fretsore Records. It follows on from his debut solo release Unexpected which came out in 2016 and is also due for reissue.

'Storm In The Hills' is available to stream here.
