I, Braineater Rumors are True!

Yesterday we confirmed with new I, Braineater lead guitarist Duane Chaos that a new I, Braineater album is in fact in the works. Producer Gord Nichols is working the band through the rings at Suicide Studios in East Vancouver. Singer/Founder/Artists Jimmy Cummins will re-record several of the top songs from past records but in a new, hard rock style. Greats will include Funtime, Edge, Dragons, Sacred Cow, Modern Man and some new material.

The band is rumored to be rounded out with legendary drummer Zippy Pinhead, Tim Plommer (Anthill, 22nd Century) and possibly Randy Rampage (DOA, Annihilator) on second guitar. While unable to confirm the lineup or possible tour dates, the album is slated to be released later this year. This is one album you won't want to miss!

Duane Chaos, Jimmy Cummins, Randy Rampage and drummer Jon Card (DOA, SNFU) share the stage as I, Braineater last summer at the Rickshaw.

Maximum Music Group president Brian Watson said he made the proposal after hearing Quaid and his band The Fugitives perform the songs at The Commodore Ballroom.

The new album from the StrokesAngles, debuted at Number Four on the Billboard album chart on Wednesday (March 30th), selling 89,000 copies in its first week of release. The disc was the third straight effort from the New York band to debut at Number Four on the chart, following 2003's Room On Fire and 2006's First Impressions Of Earth. The band's 2001 debut, Is This It, never got higher than Number 33 on the chart.
  • The next biggest rock debut was from Panic! At The Disco, whose third album, Vices & Virtues, sold 56,000 copies to land at Number Seven. This is the group's first release since it split in half two years ago.
  • Green Day's live album, Awesome As F***, entered the chart at Number 14 with 27,000 copies sold, while Soundgarden's concert set, Live On I5, sold 11,000 copies to land at Number 47.
  • Saliva entered the chart at a disappointing Number 85, selling just 6,500 copies of its new album,Under The Skin.

Jesus Krysler reviewed in Georgia Straight

Jesus Krysler's Shades of Soul is straight out of the '70s

By Mike Usinger (

Shades of Soul (Independent)
There’s nothing wrong with going the retro route, this having been proven by everyone from Jack White and the Kings of Leon to local heroes Pride Tiger and Sun Wizard. But there’s a fine line between clever and plain old puzzling. Jesus Krysler falls on the latter side of things with Shades of Soul, a record that seems designed to make one wonder what decade the trio is living in.
