When The Night Comes Down


The final album and not a quiver in sight.

The Sutherland brothers began their career in 1968 as A New Generation, having some success with the single “Smokie Blues Away” (which used a melody based on the main theme of Dvo 345;ák’s, New World Symphony), backed with “She’s A Soldier Boy” on ‘Spark’. Subsequently with ‘The Sutherland Brothers Band’ won a new recording contract with Island Records and put out an album in 1972. Their first single as The Sutherland Brothers Band was a minor hit, “The Pie”, in January 1972

The Sutherland Brothers originally performed as a folk / rock duo in the field of British music in the early 1970s, and then from 1973 to 1978 joined with rock band Quiver to record and tour as Sutherland Brothers & Quiver where they had their biggest hit with “Arms of Mary”.

The Sutherland Brothers parted company with Quiver by 1979, but continued to release material as the Sutherland Brothers for a time. In this period they achieved one further chart success with “Easy Come Easy Go”, in June 1979. However they disbanded late in 1979 after recording a final album When The Night Comes Down on CBS, with the final single being “First Love”/”Crazy Town”.
