Back in May of 2007, Brainclaw were approached by Japanese cyberpunk/spoken word author Kenji Siratori to collaborate on a spoken word song project called PIG.
Kenji supplied us with his trademark bizzare, Burroughs-styled spoken word poetry in Japanese, and we created a Brainclaw song around it.
The result was REGENERATOR P.I.G.
This strange mashup collaboration was up for and succeeded in being chosen to be the music for the Diehard 4: Live Free Or Die Hard movie trailer in Japan.
To the total honor of Brainclaw, Kenji went on to name one of his performance exhibitions Regeneratior P.I.G. as well.
As a band that is completely in love with Japan and Japanese culture, this was a great way to come full circle.
Enjoy this bit of sonic strangeness from Brainclaw and their brother from across the Pacific…
