Brainticket

Tagged: Music

Minor European prog-rock group founded by Belgian/Swiss musician Joel Vandroogenbroeck. Psychonaut (1973) seems to develop some sort of Inner Space sf theme, although the lyrics are hard to follow. The concept-album Celestial Ocean (1974) gives uninspiring musical life to the genre cliché that the Ancient Egyptians were also interstellar astronauts (see Pseudoscience). Adventure (1980) and Voyage (1982) are wholly instrumental works, although with a certain sf feel to them. The word that best describes Brainticket's largely improved jazz-rock music would be "druggy". [AR]
