Brain Surgeons NYC on tour!

Since joining MySpace last Aug 27, at the suggestion of Kim, a lovely lady in Jackson, MS, Brain Surgeons NYC now have over 11,000 new (as well as old - MySpace has also been a great place for finding the "long lost" and vice-versa) friends. The response from people, many of whom are hearing our music for the first time, has been astounding.

DENIAL of DEATH, available since March 15, has quickly become a favorite among old and new fans alike. Nearly a month later, the first pressing is nearly sold out. Don't wait too long if you haven't ordered a copy, or there may be a delay. Consider yourselves warned.

The Brain Surgeons are the brainstorm of Albert Bouchard, whose prodigious songwriting, arrangements and creative drumming drove the legendary Blue Öyster Cult to platinum sales and arena rock status.

Contrary to the hilarious Saturday Night Live skit, he's the dude who really put the cowbell in "Don't Fear the Reaper." More important, his influence is acknowledged by rock pioneers from the Minutemen (whose Mike Watt still covers his "The Red and the Black" nightly) to Metallica, whose version of his classic "Astronomy" went quadruple-platinum in the U.S. alone.

The rare artist who's shared stages with both Jimi Hendrix and Sonic Youth, his vision, chops and giant Godzilla mask burn brightly as ever with the Brain Surgeons, who've released seven highly praised CDs on Cellsum Records and built a devoted cult following over a decade of hard touring and great word-of-mouth. The band also features Deborah Frost, an ex-rock critic in the tradition of Patti Smith and Chrissie Hynde on vocals and guitar. Their newest and perhaps most outrageous weapon is lead guitarist Ross the Boss (Dictators, Manowar).

One of the most powerful and best-loved guitarists ever to emerge from the New York scene, Ross the Boss has often made the band he's in sound like a supergroup. With Bouchard, who's longed to collaborate with him ever since the Dictators opened for Blue Öyster Cult, he's really in one. DENIAL OF DEATH, an album of completely new material written and recorded with Ross can be ordered now from the Merch department at www.cellsum.com. Details of international distribution deal and 2006 tour dates are forthcoming.
