• Image of Brainiac at Jabberjaw LA '95

8x10 RC Silver Gelatin Print, all prints are printed by me in the darkroom using Omega enlarger and high quality RC papers. So glad I was able to get pics of this band. Another band whose history was cut short due to the passing of lead vocalist Tim Taylor. Just an awesome band to see live, way high energy and super weird music progressions and time signature's. And I keep saying this and I feel quite like the broken record, but during these years there were hardly that many bands using keyboards except the industrial and post industrial bands. Not that many in the loud, discordant, and noisy scenes. This is around the height of guitar post Nirvana and Indie Rock bands sprouting like dandelions. Bands like Brainiac and Girls Against Boys used them in rad ways that complimented their sounds. Its great that Brainiac has documentation of their sound, but man there was stuff happening live that was extra special with this band. At the time I remember they played a Jabberjaw comp record release party and were just about to record a new record after being signed. Always wondered what would have happened if their major label debut were to get released. Would they have changed another generation of music listeners like Nirvana or would they have been far too ahead of their time. Either way it was exciting to see them live and to see the buzz and energy that surrounded them.
