The Rise and Rise of Brindle

Who: Brindle
Where: The Cambridge Hotel
When: Wednesday March 12, 2003

Brindle took to the stage on Janaury 19, it shared the bill with the likes of Queens of the Stone Age

and PJ Harvey. No, the band hadn't experienced a sudden of overnight success. Brindle was one of 10 independent acts from Brisbane picked to perform on the Gold Coast Big Day Out's local stage. ``It was all very exciting for us and we were all terrified, but we had an absolute ball and played well considering,'' lead vocalist Deb Suckling said. ``We were really spun out by the whole thing but I think it's a good idea because it gives bands like us the chance to increase our profile.'' Founded in 1999 by Suckling and guitarist Craig Spann, the pair started out as an acoustic duo before moving into the darker, rock sounds it is known for today. The past year has been one of the biggest for the band, with the release of its new EP Classification and with three of its tracks receiving airplay on Triple J. Brindle is on the road to launch the new EP and will perform at The Cambridge Hotel on March 12. Classification has already sold out its third pressing, but Suckling said the band is already planning for its debut album. ``We'll start demoing in May and hopefully have the album out by September. ``We tend to record quite quickly and we like to get it out there pretty quick - we're quite impatient.''
