Brainville biography
BRAINVILLE was created as a supergroup, when DAEVID ALLEN (SOFT MACHINE, GONG, and other numerous projects, including solo ones), HUGH HOPPER (SOFT MACHINE, solo career), PIP PYLE (GONG, HATFIELD AND THE NORTH, NATIONAL HEALTH (to name only a few), solo career) joined forces with a producer, musician, composer (among many other things) MARK KRAMER, also known professionally as KRAMER, who had collaborated with literally tens of groups and artists, including works with DAEVID ALLEN, HUGH HOPPER, and JOHN ZORN, within the realm of Prog.

The group toured the UKand the USA in 1998, and all this resulted in an album called "The Children's Crusade", released in 1999. The album is said to be dedicated to Stanley Kubrick, and is reported as a psychedelic jazz-rock album.

After that a group was reduced to a trio; they continued to appear live. In 2004 the live album called "Brainville: Live in the UK was released. A typical Canterbury album, it shows utmost musical skills and energy (despite the age of musicians), being a wonderful performance.

After the sad PIP PYLE's passing away CHRIS CUTLER (HENRY COW, ART BEARS (among the others), solo career) was recruited. The band is still (right for the moment - 2007) active, it tours under the slightly different name -BRAINVILLE 3 - now.

Recommended for all the Canterbury scene likers

Review by toroddfuglesteg

2 stars Big names, big mess.

Big names like Daevid Allen, Mark Kramer, Hugh Hopper and Pip Pyle should guarantee a good result. Well, the jury is still out on that one.

For those of you who regard GONG as not avant-garde enough, Brainville is the answer. This is GONG taken to the extreme and beyond. Just without the good ideas and melodies. Brainville's music is mostly atonal and based on some beastly torture of bass guitars, drums and guitars. Into the mix, they have added some sound effects. In one instance, a BEATLES song is being played in the background with some bass running over it. This album is avant-garde/RIO all over and very little Canterbury Scene like NATIONAL HEALTH and CARAVAN. Yes, it is a psyched out GONG album to a certain extent with some HENRY COW and PINK FLOYD thrown into this stew too.

The end result is not good. Well, it is not for me and I can only write a subjective review of this album. i do not like it. I think it is too atonal. I cannot excactly find the references to Jazz either. There are some good stuff here, but they are far between. This is not for me.

2 stars.

Thanks to alucard for the artist addition.
