Old Dirty Brasstards go paranoid with latest release

A unique take by those ever inventive brass ensemble lads of a iconic Radiohead song certainly makes a Brexit impression in more ways than one...

Brasstards
  The lads have certainly given a classic song a unique take...

Those cheeky Old Dirty Brasstards have just released a new music video cover of 'Paranoid Android' by Radiohead to commemorate the 20th year anniversary of the group's classic album 'OK Computer'.

Formed in 2012, the 10 piece brass ensemble is made up of some of the finest brass playing talent plying their trade in London, and covers everything from pop and rock to hip hop funk and soul. They have been enjoyed at venues from Glastonbury to Hammersmith Apollo and have even had a residency at the Brooklyn Bowl.

The lads are currently making a mark before their performance at the famous Glastonbury Festival next week, so sit back, take a gulp of early morning coffee and enjoy...you may recognise a few people in all their glory too4BR

Paranoid Computer

Now they have covered 'Paranoid Computer' aided by their own brilliantly surreal parody version for the video based on the original animation by Magnus Carlsson, to put their own political spin on things to acknowledge the first anniversary of the Brexit Referendum.

It's brill…. and you do wonder where Cai Isfryn puts his mobile phone after he has his shower...
