Back in May of 2007, Brainclaw were approached by Japanese cyberpunk/spoken word author Kenji Siratori to collaborate on a spoken word song project called PIG.
Kenji supplied us with his trademark bizzare, Burroughs-styled spoken word poetry in Japanese, and we created a Brainclaw song around it.
The result was REGENERATOR P.I.G.
This strange mashup collaboration was up for and succeeded in being chosen to be the music for the Diehard 4: Live Free Or Die Hard movie trailer in Japan.
To the total honor of Brainclaw, Kenji went on to name one of his performance exhibitions Regeneratior P.I.G. as well.
As a band that is completely in love with Japan and Japanese culture, this was a great way to come full circle.
Enjoy this bit of sonic strangeness from Brainclaw and their brother from across the Pacific…
To generate excitement for the upcoming release of the new Brainclaw album DECEPTOR, let’s take a trip down Brainclaw Memory Lane…
Here is Brainclaw’s cover of the Tears For Fears classic “Mad World“ from back in the day, circa early 2005…
We will be posting rare and forgotten Brainclaw tracks over the coming weeks with regularity to get things warmed up for the new release, and to let folks get a listen to older things that may have escaped their notice the first time around.
Enjoy, and stay tuned for more!
(You may hear things that have NEVER seen the light of day before!)
