The first new recordings in over 30 years from this legendary psychedelic Cornish band. The Brainiacs can rock out like the Yardbirds and the Move but follow smoke trails laid down by figures as diverse as Lee Perry, Funkadelic and seminal West Coast acts like Spirit and Skip Spence. This beautiful 10" vinyl features 'Space Is The Place', dedicated to Sun Ra, plus Matelot Mick and Kabul, recreations of songs originally performed in the early '70s by the mysterious Half Human Band and until recently thought to be lost forever. Shagrar Records is delighted to release a 3-track 10" waxing of new recordings by the recently re-united Brainiac 5! Once described by the late rock historian John Platt as coming from Penzance via Mars, the Brainiac 5, (all four of them!) formed in the late '70s in Cornwall. The group inhaled the prevalent punk spirit of the times but were equally happy to ingest the plentiful psilocybins growing naturally on the Peninsular of Dreams and take their music to the outer reaches of the mind! Their 1978 debut EP 'The Mushy Doubt', was a wondrous melting pot of punk and acid rock that drew not only on the Pistols short sharp shock attack and the outlandish dub explorations of Lee Perry but also the dreamy guitar extemporisations of '60s bands like Country Joe & The Fish, and found instant favour with DJ John Peel who played the waxing regularly on his show.
