SCOTTI BRAINS

Scotti Brains - is the enigmatic, elusive four-piece who formed through a love of late night / early morning jams at band founder, producer Dan Carey’s Speedy Wundergound Studios in Streatham, South London. 

Made up of record producer Carey (Kate Tempest, Bat For Lashes, Franz Ferdinand) Oli Bayston (Boxed In), drummer Liam Hutton (Boxed In, Edwyn Collins, Kate Tempest) and Oli’s wife Beth Buxton – they previously put out the 4th single on Carey’s Speedy Wunderground label, the motorik psych-kraut wig-out ‘Keep Your Eyes Open Boy’ back in August 2013.

Taking their name from a shared love of San Franciscan psych outfit Bunny Brains and Dan’s cat Scotti and having come across a vintage flying Vguitar in Cash Convertors one morning – Carey uses it to full effect – layering and repeating riffs over Buxtons deranged half spoken / half shouting frenetic mantras, with Hutton and Bayston’s pummelling rhythm section holding things together on a thread that feels like it could snap at any second.
