After being a new wave drummer in the 80s, Pascal Lebrain became Puyo Puyo around 2002.
It was the computer and the program Protools Free that allowed him to
create a slightly devious and crazy lo-fi electropop music, home made
with little material, but much enthusiasm.
First good news: Feliz
Kubin took him on his label Gagarin Records for
a maxi vinyl entitled "A novel Trick Item" in 2004.. He then started a
series of concerts throughout Europe - and even in Mexico - dancing the
Puyo Puyo in video clips he put together himself in the same ludic and
low-budjet spirit as always. This mutant karaoke, both fragile and
energetic, became is trademark, along with his famous cosmodroid
helmet.From compilations to maxis, he went on producing his music, but still
asked his electronic idols to remix one of his pieces. This is how
Felix Kubin, Candie Hank, Brezel Goering (Stereototal), Frederik
Schikowski, Groupgris (Kap Bambino) and Gangpol got started on the
project: the album came out in 2009 as a picture disc under Brain
Records, a label created for the occasion. The Brain is also a radio
show hosted and produced by Lebrain and his partner Eva Lebrain since
1999, with whom he also organizes evening concerts and parties in
Nantes called "Superboums".
