This year marks the 25th anniversary of Brainiac's debut album and to commemorate this The Bell House is hosting a tribute concert in Tim's memory. The night will also be filmed for the upcoming feature length documentary on the band by Dayton native and Brooklyn based filmmaker Eric Mahoney. The project will feature interviews from the surviving band members, the Taylor family and a slew of musicians including: Steve Albini, Wayne Coyne, Buzz Osbourne, Cedric Bixler, David Yow, Eli Janney, Fred Armisen, Melissa Auf Der Maur, Jim O’Rourke and Many More…
Mahoney's documentary and narrative work has been seen on national television and at various international film festivals such as Cannes and Tribeca. Check out a sizzle reel here: https://youtu.be/J7_DkqULMdIhttps://www.thebellhouseny.com/event/1573192/
The new album follows a compelling progression from their past releases—equally the most punk rock and sublime record in their repertoire. Beg Your Pardon features everything from noisy careeners and ‘80s hardcore nods to slightly glammy stompers and straight-up, New Zealand-inspired, guitar-pop songs (and that’s just in the first 10 minutes of side one).
The band recorded and produced Beg Your Pardon themselves in their Gowanus practice space and then handed off the songs to Mikey Young (Royal Headache, Kelley Stoltz), Geoff Sanoff (Nada Surf, Luna), Ed Ackerman (The Jayhawks, John Wesley Harding) and Matthew Barnhart (Superchunk, METZ) to mix.
Beg Your Pardon will be available worldwide on November 9th, 2018 via Ernest Jenning Record Co. with exclusive vinyl releases by Taken By Surprise Records (Germany), Bang! Records (France), Geenger Records (Croatia), Orangerie (Czech Republic) and Hello Thor Records (UK).
