October 9 street date. Beggars Arkive is excited to announce a limited edition 30- year Anniversary edition of Buffalo Tom's epic second album "Birdbrain". Available on mint green vinyl, the album has been out of print for years. Buffalo Tom (Bill Janovitz, Chris Colbourn, and Tom Maginnis) formed at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst in 1984 - a breeding ground of post-punk guitar bands like Dinosaur Jr. and Pixies. Their friendship with J. Mascis helped the band's career take off by assisting with the production on the band's first two albums. Since "Birdbrain"'s release 30 years ago, many songs from the album have become live favourites. According to Trouser Press, "Birdbrain" boasts most of Buffalo Tom's best songs.
