The Golinski Brothers

The Golinski Brothers are a power pop / punk band from Brighton, East Sussex. Their original lineup featured guitarist Robert (Bob) Golinski, now a respected barrister, who played with the group at a 'Resurrection' gig in 2009, and who recorded a CD with other members of the legal profession under the name Red Corner.

The band only appeared on two official releases, the Attrix compilation Vaultage 79 (Another Two Sides Of Brighton), performing 'Too Scared' and 'Bloody', and a 7 inch release of the latter song, backed by 'Toy', on Badge in 1980, yet it was 'Bloody' which assured them a place in Peel's affections. He took to the song instantly (on his first play, he remarked, "I should be very proud indeed if I'd done that"), played it repeatedly on both releases, and it would surface from time to time in his shows over the years, usually in response to requests from listeners who could only remember the opening line ("I'm gonna go where they've never seen snow / Send my giro to Cairo.") However, John had nothing but the highest respect for the song, he would sing it when he neglected to bring it with him to the studio (e.g. on 17 December 2002), and two copies of it were found amongst the singles in John Peel's Record Box after his death.
