Brainiac - Hissing Prigs In Static Couture (1996)

Brainiac was a cool little band from Dayton, Ohio who disbanded a year after the release of this album because of the death of lead singer Tim Taylor. Taylor died in a car crash in 1997, during the pre-production of their fourth album, an album that has never surfaced since. So that was that. A lot of potential, but what we're left with are three albums, of which the last two are really good.

Brainiac was a notorious live act in their day and they supported The Jesus Lizard, The Breeders and Beck, but their music doesn't sound anything like any of these three bands. I like to call their music synthpunk, because dance punk happened a few years later and sounded a lot shittier than this.
