The Davey Brothers first came to my attention via the 2003 film Tomb Raider: The Cradle Of Life, with their infectious tune ‘Heart Go Faster’. Unfortunately, it seemed I was destined to never acquire a CD of their music to call my own: their elusive album, Monkey No. 9, was out of print everywhere. HMV couldn’t acquire it for me, neither could Virgin Megastore. I even ordered it off several Amazon sellers, yet time and time again there was some issue along the way and it never arrived. I had given up all hope… until now. Seven years later, The Davey Brothers have sent me a copy of their debut (?!) album for review, with an interview to follow. Ladies and gentlemen, it was truly worth the wait.
