Donovan's Brain

Turned Up Later

Available Now From Career Records

"Love the Ron Sanchez / Bobby Sutliff synergy - recalls why I fell in love with the Windbreakers way back when. Good job gentlemen. With some nice Rain Parade flourishes as well via Matt Piucci - also reminds me of Plasticland in places too" Pat Thomas

The one constant since the inception of Donovan's Brain has been instigator, Ron Sanchez. The Donovan's Brain universe has expanded to include a star cluster of talent. The current recording group is staffed by Deniz Tek (Radio Birdman) and Bobby Sutliff (The Windbreakers), Tony Miller (Ideal Free Distribution), bassist Bob Brown (Deniz Tek Group), drummer Ric Parnell (Spinal Tap, Atomic Rooster), and Scott Sutherland (Model Rockets). Over the past 17 years, Donovan's Brain has been joined in the studio and on stage by many of our friends: Jason Lytle, The Young Fresh Fellows, Matt Piucci (Rain Parade) and members of The Posies, Help Yourself, Man, The Idle Race, Plummet Airlines, and the Nomads. Donovan's Brain also serve as the Career Records house band, having recorded with Deniz Tek, Angie Pepper, Roy Loney, The Plaintiffs, Penny Ikinger and Richard Booth.ron sanchez

This Montana based recording workshop was formed as a reply to the "anyone can start a band" philosophy found in the mid 80's local Bozeman music scene. Donovan's Brain first entered your consciousness in 1994 when they appeared on the premier edition of the Hit The Hay compilations. The path the band has followed over the next two decades has been as complex and unexpected, much like the modern psychedelic sounds they create.

Fires Which Burnt Brightly, the sixth full album from Donovan's Brain, was released on October 20, 2009. You can read reviews here
