The Brains 

Zombie Nation (Stomp)

Not to be confused with an Atlanta band of some note 30 years ago, these Brains throb in Montreal. Being of the psychobilly strain, undead division, it would seem they’ve named themselves after their favourite food. Fortunately, the skills are all there, so even if the ghoulish schtick plays a little thin, The Brains are like The Stray Cats, except faster, louder and paler. “(Your Blood Tastes) Sweeter than Wine” tests the act’s viability with trendy Twilight fans. “Evil Never Dies,” all spaghetti-western chords and ghostly backing vocals, resonates with the earthly. Your choice is to be grossed out or dance and, perhaps, laugh.
