Memories and New Info
26 June 2020 | by roncarrpurdueSee all my reviews

I had the pleasure of seeing Brainiac several times, including the last time they played in Columbus and always was amazed at the brilliance of Timmy and the whole band. I thought I knew everything there was to know about the band but was happy to learn even more in this documentary. I'm watching for the second time and both times have been filled with happy memories and sadness over the potential that was lost. Amazing film!
