There's A Storm Called "Brian" Coming To The UK, And Music Fans Are All Making The Same Joke
It’s going to be a bit blustery tomorrow, courtesy of a certain “Storm Brian”.
The Met Office reckon that it’ll bring strong winds and wet weather to both the UK and Ireland, from 4am on Saturday morning right through to midnight.

That, on its own, is pretty dull news. Essentially it’s a weather report, and we here at The Hook aren’t in the business of bringing you weather reports. Consult Apple Weather for that. Or maybe the BBC.
What we’re enjoying about this particular bulletin is the fact that the storm is called “Brian”. It’s a “Brianstorm” if you will…

(Any non-fans of Arctic Monkeys must be feeling pretty confused right now…)
Fans of the band, however, are having an absolute field day:
Storm Brian? Don’t y’all mean Brianstorm by the english indie rock band, Arctic Monkeys from their 2007 album Favourite Worst Nightmare??

So Brianstorm is coming to the UK and will 'wreak havoc'
If only we'd listened to Alex Turner 10 years ago we could've been ready ? pic.twitter.com/4NBL2m7tBa

Is anyone else horrified to find out that Favourite Worst Nightmare came out ten whole years ago??
Now we’re feeling old.
