Alien Brains - It\'s All History Now (1979-1985) 4LP-Box 25790
Alien Brains was an abstract non-collective initiated in 1979 by Nigel Jacklin. Over the years Nigel co-operated with the likes of Mark Lancaster (Instant Automatons, 391), Allen Adams(Methods Of Execution, The Blanks, The Destructors), Philip and Richard Rupenus (Funeral Danceparty / The New Blockaders), Philip Sanderson (Storm Bugs / Snatch Tapes), Metgumbnerbone, Harold Schellinx (The Young Lions), David Jackman (Organum) and various random acquaintances (with limited musical skills).

Their works employed elements of musique concrete, the industrial avant-garde, drone music, the boogie woogie and dub. Alien Brains tools of the trade included field recordings, tape editing, use of everyday objects and devices as well as unconventionally applied traditional acoustic instruments. A keen fan of acoustics, the locations in which Alien Brains recorded or appeared were as important as the tools they used to produce their sounds.
