The Thirst are a rock band based in Brixton, London. The band consists of brothers Mensah and Kwame Cofi-Agyeman, Mark Lenihan and Marcus Harris. Mensah received an electric guitar from his parents around the age of 13, and after a few years he decided to get his brother, Kwame, saving for a bass guitar from 'cash converters'. This inspired friends Mark and Marcus to complete the band by purchasing a rhythm guitar and drum kit respectively. The main inspiration behind starting the band was their strong musical upbringing and appreciation as well as the need to stay away from the life of street crime in London. "I [Mensah] started playing now and again and got these three round just smoking and trying to stay off the road. My mum allowed us all to come round her house and chill out. She’d rather that than us hanging on the corner smoking weed."Their musical influences include Jimi Hendrix, punk, drum n bass, and local hip-hop

While working with renowned producer, Jake Fior (The Libertines), The Thirst have released The Thirst EP (23 July 2007) and the "Ready To Move" single (29 October 2007) featuring B-side, "On The Brink".

Release Notes:

The Thirst are one of London's up and coming talents - they
are many things all at once: vibrant, original and hugely
(though by no means objectionably) commercial, and, as a
result of this, The Thirst are destined for great things.

Consisting of brothers Mensah and Kwame Cofie-Ageyman,
together with school friends Marcus Hariss and Mark Lennihan,
their sound is an eclectic mix of punk rock, reggae and ska.
After gigging throughout Brixton, they've built up a strong
fan-base, and recently signed a record deal with Ronnie Wood's
record label.

Unlike countless album where a handful of good tracks are
surrounded by mediocre filler, On The Brink is consistently of
a strong and satisfyingly high quality. The highlights include
Sail Away, a stunning song about typical urban life in London.
It may highlight the Dark side of living in the city, yet
also celebrates and accepts the home that they grew up in. The
erratic drum beats and Cofie-Ageyman's infectiously energetic
voice give the track a really addictive edge.

My Everthing opens with Cofie-Ageyman's mellow voice sat
alongside gentle, melodic guitar riffs - lively, resonant and
meaningful, as it was inspired by a documentary on HIV. Acre
Lane makes for a more cheery singalong though, and there's
some furious acoustic fingerwork and explosive drumming on I

The last track on the album meanwhile, Don't Waste Your Time,
is a memorable mix of ska, dub and reggae, bringing to minds
such legendary names as Bob Marley, The Specials and The Jam.

The real charm of The Thirst lies in their down to earth
music, confronting real issues, surburban life, youth culture
and London in general - on this album, they pay tribute to
these roots. It's a debut album which is confident and strong
throughout. Just like their name, they will leave you craving

ох черт возьми, пересплушивал около четырех раз альбом. да, в группе нет ничего сверхнеординарного, но ужасно цепляет. возможно влияние на это оказывают отголоски некого "этнического" звучания и попросту не банальный поход к инди-року. вообщем, лучше один раз услышать, чем десять раз прочитать отзывы.
