The Brainstems – No Place Else
The Brainstems recently premiere their debut LP No Place Else on Bad Diet Records. A 13 track combo of rock and roll and garage.
The Brainstems record and eat tacos in St. Louis, Missouri. They bonded a few years ago at a local radio station, which led them to form a cover band indebted to garage rippers by Ty Segall and The Coachwhips. After a pact to pursue the rock life for real, the guys inevitably began to feel the tug of the twinkling coasts, career paths and the anchor of the dollar. The title No Place Else is a nod to the decisions and developments that kept the band banded (thankfully). Counted among their peers are St. Louis’ golden heathens Lumpy & The Dumpers. In fact, both groups share a band member in Gabe “The Babe” Karabell.
