If you ask the likes of Peter Buck, Scott Mccaughey, Willy Vlautin, Jay Farrar, John Murry or Kathleen Edwards they’ll all agree that Peter Bruntnell is a writer with rare and mysterious qualities.There are many influences at work on his records from The Beatles to Big Star to Nick Drake (although they’re not necessarily apparent, like the�best influences aren’t),and when NME claimed that “Peter Bruntnell’s records should be taught in schools”, they were referring to the particular appeal of the quiet Devonian’s songwriting craft. Nos Da Comrade returns emphatically to the earliest days of Bruntnell’s career, a full-on electric psych-rock experience.
