Brain Children

The album cover alone was more than enough to entice me into trying on this self-titled release from Australian honky-disco duo Brain Children. Apparently these two dudes, Mikey Young and Max Kohane, are seasoned Melbourne punk veterans who have spent years touring and releasing records in the DIY Punk / Garage / Hardcore circuit.

When the two realised they shared a passion for classic disco and vintage hip-hop, it was only a matter of time before they were making music together. One of the results is this 6-song effort released on Stained Circles. If they rounded up a cape and a ponytail these guys could be on their way to becoming an Aussie version of Ghostland.
