The Thirst Are On The Brink!!!

A Thursday in South London is not always great but when you’re off to visit Brixton’s The Thirst; the clouds soon get a silver lining. Brothers Mensah (lead guitar/ vocals) and Kwame (bass) linked with Mark (rhythm guitar) and Marcus (drummer) some years ago to create one of the UK’s most promising bands. Here are a few pics of the den…

Here is an EXCLLLUUUUUUSIVE behind the scenes clip of them practicing My Everything before they went on the BBC’s 6 Music radio station.

RIGHT!, get onto iTunes now or if this has made you thirsty (see what I did there?).

Ps – Stay tuned to RWD mag, and MTV Base as they will be appearing in a highly-produced feature in the near near future. So near I can drink it.

PPS - Their debut LP On the Brink, and their lead (and great) single Sail Away are both out in May I do believe
