The Gutter Brothers
The Gutter Brothers erupted in the 1980’s as a busking band based in London, regulars
on the Covent Garden street scene. They released their first album ‘Isometric Boogie’ in
1988, going on to release two more albums, and writing the soundtrack music to ‘Fools &
Horses’ Christmas special in 1991.
The band toured constantly in the UK, Europe and the US, sharing stages with the likes of
Dr Feelgood, Desmond Dekker, Albert Lee, Steve Harley, Debbie Harry and Jools
Holland. In 1993 the band split when lead singer Tony returned to live in his native New
Orleans.
The original 1988 line-up of Tony Green (vocals), Steve Turner (bass), Jeff Walker
(drums) and Chris Cawte (guitar) has reunited on an annual basis from 2003 following the
death of founding member Dennis Johnson (tea-chest bass and lyrics) and have played a
short run of UK gigs most years since as time and travel allow.
In 2008 the band released ‘El Krusho’, an album dedicated to Dennis’ memory and
containing all new songs composed using remaining lyrics written by him. A new recording
of previously unreleased songs ‘Mother Primeval’ followed in 2014.
April 2019 sees the Gutter Brothers return to celebrate more than 30 years of swampy
rock ‘n’ roll history with a country style gumbo of great tunes, rare funk grooves, a slab of
ska and a small pinch of metal to taste.
