Birdbrain: Roslindale Ex-Band

I’ve lived in Roslindale for 5 years now, but I didn’t realize until yesterday that there was a song named after the place. I found out via Universal Adam, who linked to Jim’s YouTube slideshow set to the song.

The band playing was called Birdbrain. The Wikipedia entry makes it sounds as though the name was well chosen, or at least, that it described their management.

This management now opted not to have any mention of Birdbrain in the advertising materials for the movie Scream, citing potential negative publicity if the movie should fail. Perhaps hundreds of millions who thus heard Birdbrain play in the movie had no idea who they were listening to.

By the way, I seem to qualify as a “Rozzie Rat,” given that I recognize some of the now-closed businesses in the slideshow.
