WHAT IS NERD BAIT?
Nerd Bait is a six-legged transatlantic collaborative creative collective consisting of a hyphen-collecting multi-instrumentalist-composer, singer-scientist and a bloke who does wurdz. They write and perform unfashionable forms. After the long-form concept single, a lieder cycle and a blippy radio thriller are in the works.
WHAT IS THE TREACHEROUS BRAIN?
The Treacherous Brain is Bad Boyz, Driller Killer and Quadrophenia crammed into ten minutes. That is, it’s a buddy story about a boy and his brain in which a guy has a hole drilled in his skull in the form of a prog-rock opera in which the survival of our protagonist is uncertain. And it ain’t like none of them things.
It’s hard to explain. You should come see.
