The end of Brainiac's run was very tragic. And two out of three full lengths being pretty much perfect is a great track record.

Yeah. If GBV had closed up shop in 1999 (or sooner) they'd be fucking legendary by now. As it is, they kind of have to make sure people still know they're a thing whenever they drop a new album (or five), and they look a bit desperate and uninspired compared to most of their contemporaries. Even the ones that have long since ceased to exist. It's a shame really.
