Brother forced to change band name
Slough-based four piece Brother, who rocked Glastonbury festival over the weekend, have been forced to change their name following a legal battle over the moniker.
Singer Lee Newell told the NME that another band in Australia served them a writ over use of the name:
"There's this fucking Celtic band called Brother too. We knew about it but honestly we thought nothing about it because they were so small."
Josh Ward, Brother's bassist, added:
"This guy travelled across America to come to our San Francisco show, fought his way to the front and chucked a 30 page document on my feet while we were playing. "I said, 'What the fuck's that?' and he went, 'You've been served'.
They have since re-branded as Viva Brother and debuted a new banner at Glastonbury, with their revamped name, during their set. Watch a video they filmed on the event's site here:
