Welcome to the twisted world of The Brains. This psychobilly project from Montreal, QC released their album Zombie Nation via Stomp Records back in 2010. With this release, the trio was at it again with their trademark sound; including catchy vocal lines, fast-paced punk music, and a slapped, stand up bass (instead of the standard punk rock electric bass guitar).
Montreal, QC psychobilly’s The Brains are back with their 2011 Stomp Records release, Drunk Not Dead. The band sets up their customary 3piece drums, guitar and stand up bass and slap their way through 13 short, undead and to-the-point tracks. Their mix of punk and psychobilly overlayed with snappy vocals makes for catchy songs that latch on to your brain and don’t let go. With cool tracks from “Four Beasts Ride” and “We Are The Brains” to “Oh Murder!” and “Horsemen”, Drunk Not Dead in my opinion, holds the best songs The Brains have written to date.
