Thirty years ago this week, Psyche released their debut album, Insomnia Theatre. The record was significant on several grounds: it was one of the first North American dark electro recordings; it was made by a couple of Canadian teenagers, instead of by rich Europeans armed with Rick Wakeman-scale equipment; and it gave us some of the catchiest tunes in the genre. “The Brain Collapses” was the most immediately gripping track on the album, and it tells the story of singer Darrin Huss coming to terms with the aftermath of a party. Psyche relocated to Europe and went through some personnel changes, but are still bothering the bats and making great tunes.
