We Are Scientists Brain Thrust
The band spent 2007 at weight-loss camps, alcoholics' dry-out facilities, and a race car school, yet has also found time to pen, record, and road-test their sophomore offering, Brain Thrust Mastery. If W.A.S.'s first album had been far, far better than it was, and of a far more mature style, and if they had then released a limp, unenjoyable second record, and if Brain Thrust Mastery were actually their third album, it would be hailed as 'a return to form', as 'equal to -- in many ways an improvement upon -- the monumental debut'.
In the Fall of '07, long-time drummer Michael Tapper retired from the band, and We Are Scientists added a new drummer, plus, in a fit of accumulation, a fourth man on-stage. Keith and Chris also began giving inspirational lectures at universities across the UK during their hitherto unencumbered afternoons. On Brain Thrust Mastery, all of their experience (and some they only read about) shows.
