Brothers Streep.

The sickest brand in South Africa:

We’re Never Going To Be (SA Idols)

We’re never going to be SA Idols on TV
We’re never going to have a single charting in the Top 40
We’ll never win the prize, no cars, no cash, no wireless mics
We’ll never get the call to turn on Cape Town’s flashing Christmas lights

Sometimes living out your dreams, ‘aint as easy as it seems
you really want to make it far, though you’re useless at Singstar
But there’s no need to lament, those that can’t sing can present
Liezel can’t have had it hard, reading her jokes off a card

Maybe presenting is our game, maybe we’ll find honest fame
unlike Proverb – that’s not even his real name

We’re never going to be SA Idols on TV
We’re never going to have a single charting in the Top 40
We’ll never win the prize, no cars, no cash, no wireless mics
We’ll never get a chance to bug our friends with our new bragging rights

And if presentings not for you, you could judge a song or two
just no comments based on race, or Unathi will take your place
No better job that you could do to get the nation behind you
‘cause any moment you feel led you could punch Gareth in the head

Perhaps judging’s our resort, because they must be running short
just take Randall – he looks like a tanned Voldemort

We’re never going to be SA Idols on TV
We’re never going to have a single charting in the Top 40
We’ll never win the prize, no cars, no cash, no wireless mics
We’ll never be a household name like what’s her face and the great Heinz

If all you really need is a catchy tune, we’ll be seeing you in Joburg very soon

We’re never going to be SA Idols on TV
We’re never going to have a single charting in the Top 40
We’ll never win the prize, no cars, no cash, no wireless mics
We’ll only stand a chance if they still aren’t counting the voting right

We’re never going to be (never gonna be)
We’re never going to be (never gonna be)
We’re never going to be (never gonna be)
We’re never going to be (SA Idols on TV)

Bio: 

Formed in 2005 by Dylan Hichens (guitar and vocals) and Simon van Wyk (guitar and vocals), The Brothers spent their early years performing their harmonious blend of comedy and music in the Cape Town band scene, before later branching into the comedy arena. The result is a comedy band where melody and music don’t take the back seat to the laughs. Their songs span a variety of topics, from flavoured milk products to Disney princesses, as well as pirates, the economy, movie twists and other day-to-day observations – there’s certainly something for everyone with The Brothers Streep.

The Brothers Streep - Full bandCompleting the band are their friends and fellow ‘brothers’, Tim Smith (keys), Richard Graham (bass) and Tim Price (drums). Together they released their first full band album, Suitable For The Whole Family (2010) – the follow up to their debut duo release, “It Couldn’t Have Been Miss Scarlett, She Was With Us At The Time…” (2006).

The Brothers don’t just view themselves as a band, but rather an entertainment brand. They’ve been known to write songs for corporates, release podcasts on iTunes, and film various skits and music videos for YouTube. With future plans of writing a TV series and a Brothers Streep musical, it’s only a matter of time before they’re a household name. (They’ve just yet to stipulate which household.) < Their Website.
