Zircon & The Burning Brains

Profilo:
Leicester, UK based experimental industrial and Dada avant-garde trio. Zircon & The Burning Brains (aka ZBB for short) was established in 1981 as a sideline to Holy Atheist, a collaborative project of Alan & Steve Freeman with others. The unusual group name is a dedication to both Frank Zappa and Tangerine Dream's "Electronic Meditation". For most of the time, ZBB were an experimental trio comprising the Freeman brothers (from Alto Stratus) and Nigel Harris. Zircon was the equipment, originally an old ITT cassette recorder rewired as a feedback device, and the Burning Brains were the human performers. Instrumentation included motors, tin cans, pots and pans, a Sinclair Spectrum computer, various cassette machines, tape loops, and (later on) synthesizers, etc.
The original band fizzled out and ceased in 1986, reforming for two albums in 2003 with totally different equipment - but the same anything goes free spirit. This reformation also spawned the one-off sideline project The Zircon Game and the related 2/3.
