REMASTERED SINGLES, COVERS & UNRELEASED TRACKS &
1996 LIVE PERFORMANCE FROM THE BLIND PIG
It's been over twenty years since Tim Taylor left this mortal coil for another realm. The world fell silent as the stinging static and manic modes of the band called Brainiac were taken away just as they were reaching a fevered pitch. We're now deep into a new century, but the promise of flying cars and Phillip K Dick premonitions have been drowned out by the stale drone of social media chatter and trivial Alexa queries. Yet a new generation of youth wonders, as they always do, what life was like before... Before they were born. Before there was a computer inside phones.
Brainiac proudly hailed From Dayton, Ohio. They put it on their T-shirts and proclaimed it religiously from the stage everywhere they went. On this double album by the same name, is the band's history unfolding from a new lens, chronologically through remastered singles, covers, and previously unreleased tracks over sides A and B. Sides C and D present a never before heard (or even torrented) example of their bombastic live experience: a concert recording from the legendary Blind Pig in Champaign-Urbana. The gatefold artwork contains a band family tree of sorts, centering Brainiac to many of their local contemporaries as well as various pictures from the band's personal collections. Listening to this release will not get you Y2K compliant, but it is a fresh reminder of how exciting Brainiac was as well as further evidence that Ohio once reigned supremely weird.
