The band started as a quartet with Pip Pyle (drums) and Kramer (bass, producer). They performed two concerts in one evening at NYC's Knitting Factory in 1998, and days later went into Kramer's Noise New Jersey studio and recorded The Children's Crusade, released the following year on Kramer's Shimmy-Disc label. Reduced to a trio, Brainville: Live in the UK, released as by "Daevid Allen with Hugh Hopper and Pip Pyle", came out in 2004.
This line-up played at the Canterbury Festival in October, 2006.
