Brainoil- "Death of This Dry Season" (20 Buck Spin, 2011)
Brainoil began in Oakland in 1998 and released splits with Cruevo and Iron Lung before putting out their self titled debut in 2003. A rather long hiatus in no way deterred the band from writing solid material and "Death of This Dry Season" represents a focused and deliberate attack on the senses years in the making. Now that they are back and in attack mode, Brainoil will be playing Now That's Class on October 3rd as the opening act for Lecherous Gaze. Live reviews of the band's performances suggest sweat, damaged ear drums, alcohol abuse, and enough sticky icky to melt even the strongest brain cells. Consider yourself encouraged and warned simultaneously.
