No Ifs, Buts, Maybes
Legendary guitarist Billy Bremner
steps up to release the third solo project of his long career, and the first
with a full band since his mid-80s effort “Bash!”
Known for his place with Dave Edmunds and Nick Lowe in ROCKPILE and as a sideman
for the Pretenders (doing all the guitars on “Back in the Chain Gang”
and “My City Was Gone”), Paul McCartney, and many others, Bremner
is one of those guitar legends heard on the radio daily. “No Ifs,
Buts, Maybes” rocks out with the best of his ROCKPILE efforts, and is
sure to please fans of that group.
Born and raised in Scotland, Bremner was noticed quickly for his guitar prowess
as the British pub-rock scene exploded in the '70s. His relationship with Dave
Edmunds and Nick Lowe resulted in a number of musical and songwriting contributions
to their solo albums but only the one "official" Rockpile album: the
now-legendary "Seconds of Pleasure" (CBS, 1980), which featured Bremner
on lead vocals on two cuts.
Bremner’s previous solo efforts are “Bash!,” recorded and
released in the mid-’80s, and “A Good Week’s Work,”
recorded and released in the late ‘90s.
