The news that Ludichrist and Scatterbrain, two NYC metal bands that shared a few members, were reuniting crossed our inbox this morning, and caused us to pull out our copy of Scatterbrain’s 1990 full-length, Here Comes Trouble. While Scatterbrain may best be remembered for the doo-woppy freak-out “Don’t Call Me Dude,” we’d geek out over “Down With the Ship (Slight Return),” a Ludichrist remake that plugged famous riffs in between each of its verses … not that we can name them all, even after all these years and record purchases.
