Saint-Etienne (France) (1999 – present)

1.) Brain Damage is a dub duo bass-machine. It was created in 1999 by two founder-members of the Bangarang dub collective from Saint-Etienne (France) and the dub band A.S.S.E (Another Sound System Experience).
The duo plays and belongs to an electro dub style of its own. In the same time dark and emotional. A style defines like emo-dub-ambient.

After a first maxi CD -Bipolar Disorder- and a compilation -Combat dub- produced by its own label (Bangarang), Brain Damage realized 2 albums with the dub label from Paris, Hammerbass. It results from the first one another compilation under the name Combat dub vol.2, remixed versions of the tracks by the main activists of the international dub scene such as Zion Train, Alpha & Omega, Vibronics, The Disciples

In 2006, the duo signed at the label Jarring Effects and produced a third album : Spoken Dub Manifesto. Spoken Dub Manifesto is an ambitious piece of work, recorded with none the less than eleven vocalists, gathered here around a spoken word concept, confirming the emotional and special way that Brain Damage has to produce dub, hereafter unique.
More than ever the duo affirms its identity trough its choices, sometimes drastic, of concepts, collaborations, mixes or masterings.

After more than 300 concerts in Europe, it is interesting to notice that everything seems to oppose the ambient and “brainy” aspect of the studio work and the live performances, where sensations become physical again, sub basses tangible and the fight against the straightness of the machines merciless.
