Brainiac: Transmissions After Zero at Brattle Theatre
In the mid ‘90s the Dayton, OH music scene became an indie rock hot spot because of bands like The Breeders and Guided by Voices. Arguably the most innovative of them all was Brainiac, led by musical genius and charismatic front man Tim Taylor. The band was slated to sign a major label record deal when Taylor was tragically killed in a bizarre accident, leaving his family and bandmates to pick up the pieces. This film explores the band’s music, legacy, influence, and how people survive and cope with the loss of loved ones.
