Martin & The Brownshirts

Formed: Chester, Cheshire, England, UK

Great little band with an unfortunate ironic name that attracted nazis to their gigs, spelling their untimely demise with just one superb semi-novelty record as their legacy. Along with The Jerks, they were easily the best of the Lightning bands.
