Brainiac - From Dayton Ohio (RSD June 2021)
Brand new. Sealed 2xLP.
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.
