BRAINIAC 5 BACK IN THE SADDLE!
Reconvened Cornish psych-punks THE BRAINIAC 5 return with a new single and video.
‘Laura Riding’ is taken from Journey To X, the band’s third album released last month. The track is available to download here. The album is available on CD and deluxe gatefold vinyl from Amazon and download from iTunes.
The video is by Martin James Gee.
Formed in Cornwall, The Brainiac 5 gravitated to London, recruiting members from Stiff-signed pub-rockers PLUMMET AIRLINES, and joining the nascent psych scene. Recording their debut album with HAWKWIND’s Martin Griffin in the producer’s chair, they split in 1980, only to reform in 2012, releasing their comeback album Exploding Universe in 2015.
The band were recently featured on Cherry Red’s 80s psych box set Another Splash Of Colour, and are already working on the follow-up to Journey To X.
In between sessions, they have the following dates lined up….
Fri 14 April The Gunners, London
Sat 22 April The Railway Hotel, Southend
Fri 12 May The Betsey Trotwood, London
