Thirty years ago Brain Size 61 was hatched. Born from the minds of the Hutchins brothers, it’s a stew of punk, rock and metal. A luscious blend of deranged combustible musical energy. The rules have been simple right from the get go, it had to be loud, fast and fun. Stories, struggles and crushed dreams wrapped up and ready to rumble. They’re still at it, going strong and kicking ass. This is the best of so far. Remastered for your earsplitting listening pleasure!
Turn it up and let the music do the talking!
