The best by some distance was McDermott’s 2 Hours.Formed by songwriter and guitarist Nick Burbridge (pictured at right) this outfit were passionate, extremely talented and were quite simply the best Brighton live band during my formative years of gig going as a teenager.Looking back over the…See More
