THE BRAINS OF HUMANS :: Demo 1985 + Live 1986

"We don´t need no
third World war
No Vietnam, no Hiroshima again..."

THE BRAINS OF HUMANS - švajčiarska @narcho-punková kapela z druhej polovice 80-tych rokov. Neskôr sa z nich sformovali agitační EARTH CITIZENS. Demo + živák mi nahral Pablo, ich bubeník a vytrvalý punkáč, milovník vinylov, výmien a vege žrádla.
Tu je kúsok z jeho komuniké, čo pred rokmi napísal (sorry, bez prekladu):

"...so,Sick Records was born,and we even had a few self-organized gigs,the first one in Sept.84 in a youth centre(just a few minutes before the gig our vocalist left,so I had to take over vocals!),and then the second was in Bern(capital city of Switzerland),and that was my first dose of a squat back in early 1985 at the ‚Punkhaus’!!Driven by all this we booked another studio time and yet with another line-up(and me switching to the drums)!That recording we liked so much so we changed the name of the band into The Brains Of Humans and released the tape as ‚Anarchy,Peace,Love,Liberty,Equality’.Well,I guess you know the continuation of the story,more line-up changes,more recordings,more band names,more releases.Sick Records was run by me and the ep’s guitarist of The Decay.But since I was skint for a long time,it ended up being his and our new vocalist’s label,as I simply couldn’t afford to invest any money.So one day they said you’re out!They went on and started Far Out Records.I went back home and started Resistance Productions with a few tapes of our bands,plus a tape by the then brandnew Fleisch.Before being able to put out more vinyl the thought of a zine came back to me and so I published my first punk zine ‚Alternative’ back in 1988.68 pages copied,I lost loads on cash with that,cos copy costs were so high,none would have paid $10 for a copy!The Brains Of Humans evolved and after a one year break reformed and then we decided we’d record a 7’’ and tour europe.So in 1989 Resistance Productions released it’s first 7’’.The label was run by me and Fritze(our roadie),although fully financed by him and another good friend of us named Oli.Thanx to earlier releases such as the tapes and the 7’’ I knew of this thing called ‚trading’-I send you my record,you send me yours’.I very much enjoyed this and most of what I have released was traded with people from abroad,and I still do it to this day.It’s the best way to spread your stuff and get new stuff from abroad in exchange!!Putting words into actions!!Resistance Productions became a busy label after we released our „Game 88 EP“ 7’’and we started to release stuff from penfriends’s bands as well,such as the H.C.P. ‚Anti Drugs’ EP(from Poland)and Flagrants D’eli(France).Starting with the Brains Of Humans we also started to organize gigs in Zurich,first in youth centres and then later on in squats.The first foreign band we organized was Active Minds(UK) in 1987.Of the ‚Alternative’ zine we did 5 issues,with the last peaking at 168 pages plus a poster!! Cash was becoming tight,and I didn’t wanted to stop the zine thing.So in 1991 I started ‚No Sanctuary’,a monthly zine.Pretty soon I wasn’t on my own anymore and Resistance Productions were at some point up to 4 people.The zine existed for 3 years,36 issues,obviously.I was always fascinated with the Crass comp.LP’s ‚Bullshit Detector’,so when the money was here we compiled that and co-released Vol.4 in 1993,a dream to come true,and even some Crass members said it was great we picked up their idea.When The Brains Of Humans split in 1989,just before the tour, I formed Earth Citizens with our roadie Fritze..."

...a viem, že ich profil bol aj v jednom starom čísle zinu SCENE REPORT (nájdeš tu na blogu), tak prípadne pozri aj tam, tuším v dvojke?.
