Brain Damage are a French rock band, formed in 1977 by Haylock M.S. Ellis (guitar) and Philippe Poiret (guitar, keyboards, vocals).
In 2006, Brain Damage released their second album under one of the Creative Commons licenses on the free music platform Jamendo. It is a collection of recordings spawning more than fifteen years, mostly punk and/or psychedelic with science fiction inspired lyrics — among them « Quand le paysage se déchire » (« When the Landscape Tears ») a song about Philip K. Dick; and « Un été de serre » inspired by Norman Spinrad’s novel Greenhouse Summer, which Wagner translated into French. Most of their recorded work is now online as they work on projects including their next album, and the soundtrack to Wagner’s next novel.
He release a new album in collaboration with Big Mouth in 2021, Beyond the Blue
