Upbeat, Whimsical Rock & Roll: A sonic throwback to Merseybeat, Breaking News' 'Another Guy' gleefully tackles the common crisis of desperately persuading a pal to take off the rose-tinted glasses and stop the inevitable.


Written and recorded entirely by acclaimed multi-instrumentalist Tom Monks under the pseudonym 'Breaking News', Another Guy is complete with jangly guitars, Mellotron rhythms, Hofner bass, Farfisas, and rich harmonies - intricately jam-packed into two and a half minutes of plot twists and radical left turns!
