Biography

THE BRAINCHIGGERS are not a new band. The origins go back to early 2000. Started by vocalist/guitarist/songwriter PM (Paul Minkah) in his home recording studio. The main goal to write and record a wide variety of songs in the Modern Heavy Rock Genre, put together a live band, start gigging extensively and of course someday get signed and tour the world.

Since the beginning, THE BRAINCHIGGERS have seen a few band members come and go, at one point THE BRAINCHIGGERS were thought to have been exterminated. Although Paul has been participating in other musical endeavors, reaching out as far as L.A.. The B.C. flame is still burning. Paul has continually been writing and recording new BC music in his home studio over the past couple years in preparation for the next release to be titled "AnuDamExperience". Lots of people who have heard THE BRAINCHIGGERS past demos are requesting the new CD and live shows. It's time THE BRAINCHIGGERS are coming back to life.

Like THE BRAINCHIGGERS of the recent past, the songs are more than merely music and lyrics put together, but attempts at relaying observations about aspects in life.

The Sound: “A Hypnotizing Musical Confession!”

THE BRAINCHIGGERS incorporate a wide variety of musical styles such as modern rock, metal, industrial metal, hard rock, punk rock & acoustics to bring something "new" and "unique" to today’s music listeners. You'll always be left wondering what they are going to come up with next. Pushing the boundaries of the entire Modern Rock Genre, never afraid to take it to any extreme!

Since the explosive birth in 2000, THE BRAINCHIGGERS have accomplished many outstanding achievements. Their hard work and dedication produced the first demo titled "Organized Chaos" in late 2001 and "Drama" late 2003. While "Organized Chaos" displays the Chigger’s heavier side, the sophomore demo “DRAMA” shows a touch of the lighter side of things.

Past Achievments:

• The track "Minnesota Personality" was added to the 2003 DVD/Book Expert Series title, “Photoshop for Nonlinear Editors”, which is being distributed nationally in many major retail chains.
• The track "Minnesota Personality" landed the BC their 1st sound track licensing deal on “Alticity 3 Worldwide 2003” by Sled Visions films.
• The song "Entity" won the BC a free spot on Militia Promotions Underground Movement Vol. 2, 2003.
• Over 58,000 hits on MP3.com before it shut down.
• THE BRAINCHIGGERS remained in the top 5 for more than a year on 92.7 WQLZ’s “BANDEMONIUM” since it’s inception in 2001.
• The BC's Debut demo "ORGANIZED CHAOS" has received airplay on many radio stations across the US with very positive feedback.
• The BC's 2nd demo "DRAMA" as well has received lots of airplay on many stations across the US.
• THE BRAINCHIGGERS have been booked at some of Chicago’s top clubs to include: THE METRO and OASIS 160.
• THE BRAINCHIGGERS have gigged extensively throughout the Midwest reaching as far as Fargo, ND. THE BRAINCHIGGERS have performed as an opening act with major label recording artist Celldweller, Mushroom Head, 5PointO, Slaves on Dope, Dog Fashion Disco and others. (Make sure to checkout the live video section)
• "ORGANIZED CHAOS and DRAMA” have received many great reviews on some popular e-zines, and music web-sites (see reviews section).

What’s Next?

The new CD titled “ANUDAMEXPERIENCE" is being recorded in L.A. @ The PlayGround studio with “multi-platinum track record Producer” Mike K and “up & coming producer” Chad Gendason this April 2007!

Talks with different musicians are already under way to shape shift this project once again into a live tour ready band.

THE BRAINCHIGGERS plan to make 2007 “The Year Of The Chigger”, with an upcoming fall radio campaign, New CD release, 24/7 promotional work, and tour plans.

THE BRAINCHIGGERS believe with hard work and dedication, that they will finally achieve that ultimate goal a "Record Deal" and the ability to get their music out to the masses!

The bug is loose and there’s no stopping it. The Brain Chiggers have landed inside your mind!

Lyrics

4 Walls

Written By: PM

The More I Live----The More I Break
The More I Give----The More They Take

The Days Go Rushing By----SO FUNNY HOW WE LIVE
It's Gone In The Blink Of An Eye
Where Do I Begin----This Life (x2)
Where Do I Fit In

Don't Look Back At Life----Don't Look Back Just Fly
The Walls Are Closing In----These Halls That Bind Me

Story Of My Life----State Of Mind I'm In
Surrounded By What Might----Reflections Of What Is

The Days KEEP Rushing By----THESE MOMENTS I AM IN
It's Gone In The Blink Of An Eye
Where Do I Begin----This Life (x2)
Where Do I Fit In

The Walls Are Closing In----Can Some-One Let Me In
The Walls Are Closing In----These Halls That I Walk

(Repeat Next Group 2 times)
Don't Look Back At Life----Don't Look Back Just Fly
The Walls Are Closing In----These Halls That Bind Me
(End Repeat)

This War Inside Of Mine----My Soul Is Wearing Thin
These Halls I Walk Them Blind
The Walls Are Closing In----moments in my life
These Halls That I Walk In----everything gonna be alright
The Walls Are Closing In

(Repeat Next Group 2 times)
Don't Look Back At Life----Don't Look Back Just Fly
The Walls Are Closing In----These Halls That Bind Me
(End Repeat)

It Takes Every Breath Of Mine
Every Single Moment In My Life
It's All Yours And It's All Mine
Paint Your Picture Of Your Life
Of Your Life---Of Your Life---Of Your Life

MINNESOTA PERSONALITY

Written By: PM

MINNESOTA PERSONALITY
Can not fight these feelings
Can't release awe
Is there nothing left to believe in is there anything at all
I Fall

I search to find some meaning some reason to this all
I'm offering a way out, A way out of this awe
So far way back, A thousand miles in space
I feel so far way back, I feel so lost in this place called my life
Control

Can't find a way back, Can't find away to believe
Can't find a way back, Can't find the strength inside me
Everyday of this life is like a struggle to breath
Its slowly building inside, Slowly breaking down me
Who the hell am I who the hell are we what the hell is life what the
hell is free

This Life I'm here, I've been living this life for 27 years
This Life I'm here, I've been living this lie for 27 years
I just want to find my way threw here, I just want to find my way from
here

This life I'm here, I've been walking a fine line
I just wanna live my life
(repeat pre-chorus and chorus)

SHAPE OF BOX (S.O.B.)

Written By: PM

it hurts inside of me
feels like I lost everything
this is a part of me it lives inside the heart of me

As I look back and see all these memories of you right there with me
How we had the Time of our life Yes

We shared sometimes, We lived our life
Our souls intwined

Bring it back to me
Bring it back to me
Bring it back to me
Its Everything I need
Bring it back to me

Everything in this life everything I've loved
Everything in this life
Everything I want
Everything in this life everything I love
Everything in this life I hold on to

We had the times
We shared the Life
Our souls intwine

(got so lost in me)
(need you right next to me)

thought it would always be you right next to me soul mates we would be

Bring it back to me, Bring it back to me
Its everything I need, Bring it back to me
(Everything in this Life Everything I need)
(Everything in this life all these memories)

Written By: PM

Hold on so tight
Holding on to our beliefs
only God knows whats right but we push fear as is we
know the meaning of Life the only way it should be

how should it be

I try to run but I can't resist,
this terrible hold on our need to exist,
as the days grow old all the souls that exist,
Its like were letting go of the true meaning of this,
we spin out of control and the evil resist and it goes on

Lost inside of me (lost)
Lost inside of me

the world we know will cease to exist,
destruction of our own the evil hits,
we can't let this go on we must resist
And it goes on Lost inside of me (lost)
Lost inside of me
(Lost)

And it goes on
And it goes on
And it goes on & on & on
(repeat)

the world we know will cease to exist,
destruction of our own the evil hits, we can't let this go on we must resist
And it goes on Lost inside of me (lost)
Lost inside of me
(Lost)

And it goes on
And it goes on
And it goes on & on & on
(repeat)
