About Crazy & The Brains:

Crazy & The Brains originally formed as a two piece anti-folk/punk act by friends Chris Urban and Jeff Rubin. For the first few years of their existence, the duo performed around the NYC anti-folk scene at places such as the Sidewalk CafĂ© while releasing their first two EPs. Shortly afterwards, the band added brothers Brett and Lawrence Miller on bass and drums respectfully becoming a four piece and full band. The new additions took Crazy & The Brains from their more lo-fi folk aesthetic to a fuller sounding (albeit still quirky) garage punk sound, and found them signed to the newly formed Baldy Longhair Records, a New Jersey-based record label dedicated to releasing all forms of punk rock on analog.

Since joining Baldy Longhair, Crazy & The Brains have released a six-song EP titled “Don’t Need No Snacks,” as well as contributed three songs to a split 7” titled “Are On The Other Side” with label-mates and friends The Disconnects, who they later toured the States with as a co-headlining summer US tour in 2012.

In the last year the band premiered three music videos on Blank TV for their songs “Let Me Go”, “Saturday Night Live”, and “It’s Alright,” and has been compared to the likes of The Moldy Peaches, Black Lips and The Dead Milkmen.
