"Brain Idea is one of Chicago's most exciting new bands. Their second release is also their debut full-length on Permanent Records. It's full of stripped down, super upbeat, catchy, and totally DIY-style rock'n'roll jams, heavily influenced by New Zealand's legendary DIY indie rockers, The Clean and '90s bedroom recording pop savants. Brain Idea took most of the material on their now out-of-print and highly sought after demo cassette tape and re-recorded it with much more depth and reverb, especially on the vocals. They've added some great instrumental interludes that tie the tracks together which are quite Kraut-y in nature (these guys were the ones behind that NOi! tape (classic Oi! punk cuts covered Krautrock-style), mind you). The dudes in Brain Idea also have a part-time Creedence Clearwater Revival cover band called Graveyard Train, so you know they're of good taste. They even cover the Clean for chrissakes. Fans of lo-fi DIY pop, Krautrock, and CCR-esque pop genius will absolutely dig Brian Idea." Includes silkscreened insert.
