Scatterbrain  


Humor and metal are seldom mixed, and even more seldom with any degree of success. New York's Scatterbrain were one of the few to achieve any notable success with their blend of funk, thrash, and lyrics that one can't help but smile at (as evidenced by song titles such as "Tastes Just Like Chicken", "Grandma's House Of Babes", "I'm With Stupid", and many others). The band evolved from Ludichrist, a NYC hardcore band that released two albums in the late 80's. Scatterbrain's debut, Here Comes Trouble, scored the band its biggest hit, as "Don't Call Me Dude" garnered some good MTV airplay. Though the band's joking attitude ultimately is what made them memorable, it has to be said that they had serious chops as musicians -- certainly had they chosen to go a more traditional metal route they could have achieved success there. As it was, even though they did draw a cult crowd, the fact that they didn't really make it big is probably due to the simple fact that a lot of people just didn't get it.
