Interview: Brain Eaters


Franais English

July 2004

BRAIN EATERS, that's the story of 4 unbalanced psychotics, coming straight from outer-space. BRAIN EATERS, that's 3 musiciens who play a pretty good and powerfull Garage-Rock. BRAIN EATERS, that's an amazing stage-act singer, a kind of devastating hybrid between ROCHEE SARNO and LUX INTERIOR.

Well, BRAIN EATERS are a really good stuff ... except if you got a brain, of course!
