The Brainiacs – S/T E.P. 7″

Easy to find a cheap yet underrated and neglected in my opinion. Don’t Tell Me Why is one hell of a obnoxious punk song. Take Me To Paris ain’t far behind. It’s simple and stupid but it just grabs me. The b-side is maybe why people ignore it? But Suzies… is totally ok and saved by the vocals. Ok it won’t be played that often I admit that. And Stunned just blows so after you’ve heard it you can delete it from your hard drive.

    I agree: this is a good 7″ which deserves more recognition. My fave cut is “Take Me To Paris” but “Don’t Tell Me Why” and “Suzies So Unsure” are pretty damn good as well. And “Stunned” is a total piece of gar-bitch, of course… :D I think they later moved in a more R&B/Funk direction, anticipating their disappearance from the scene. Thanks for sharing these nice ditties with us!

    Not bad! I’ve seen this one before, but never heard it as far as I can remember.
    Got any Spanish stuff by the way?

  3. The copy I traded away many years ago was also on yellow vinyl, so maybe all copies were (?). Gotta love that cheesy artwork on the front of the sleeve- LOL! My favorite tune is “Don’t Tell Me Why” which I remember was comped back in ’98 on KBD #15 1/2.

    Better watch it. Old boy don’t like having his songs shared for some reason. Perhaps he’s still waiting for his ship to come in on this timeless masterpiece:

      Sorry mrpoopy, your comment got stuck among the turds. Priceless comment section in your post LOL. Hope he comes here too.

  5. The first song was really good. Simple – full of energy – as I like it.
