Mike Rep & The Quotas - Donovan's Brain 7" (2009)


Even among Rep's catalog of weird shit, this record is a weird one. Donovan's Brain is a two-part sci-fi red temple prayer boogie anthem, loosely based around his experience in the mid 90's producing Donovan's comeback album on Rick Rubin's American label. The resulting recordings were too fucked up for Rubin and another producer was put on the job. This hit was Rep's response and it's 1000x better than anything off of Sutras. The Ballad of Jim Croce is one of Rep's early 80's campfire parodies which got under the skin of fratboys and rednecks alike: "Sacriledge! Croce is like a goner, man!"
