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 Ancient Egypt in SF; 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]
