About Brainville 3
Brainville is a collaboration between Shimmy Disc founder Kramer and three of the legends of Canterbury rock, Gong founder Daevid Allen, Soft Machine bassist Hugh Hopper, and Pip Pyle, who drummed for Gong, Hatfield and the North, and National Health. Despite three of the musicians having made their names during the psychedelic and progressive rock eras, the band's music has a contemporary sound. Kramer collaborated with both Allen and Hopper on two albums each and so it was only a matter of time before he collaborated with both at once. The most logical choice of drummer would then be Pyle, who has played frequently with Allen and Hopper over the last three decades.
