Brendan Benson

Collaborations with the White Stripes, lyrics about the pleasures of tied up women…Brendan Benson has sneaked up on the music world and given it a firm smack round the face. 1996’s ‘One Mississippi’ was one of the most overlooked pop albums of the nineties, but 2005’s ‘Alternative to Love’ has finally given the Detroit songsmith his dues receiving huge critical acclaim.
