In the mid 90's the Dayton, OH music scene became a hot spot generating world wide buzz from the influential indie rock being produced there (The Breeders, Guided by Voices). Arguably the most innovative of them all was the band Brainiac, led by musical genius and insanely charismatic front man Tim Taylor. The band was opening for Beck and being courted by major labels when Tim was tragically killed in a bizarre auto accident leaving his family and bandmates to pick up the pieces. This film explores the band's music, legacy, massive influence on pop culture and how people survive and cope with the loss of loved ones.

This feature length documentary, making its world premiere at this year's SXSW Film Festival is directed by Dayton native and Brooklyn based filmmaker Eric Mahoney (Madly, North Dixie Drive) and edited by musician Ian Jacobs (Monograms). The project, the first from Production Company Hotshot Robot will feature interviews from the surviving band members, Taylor family and a slew of musicians including: Fred Armisen, Steve Albini, Matt Berninger, Buzz Osbourne, Cedric Bixler-Zavala, Melissa Auf der Maur, David Yow, Stuart Braithewaite, Eli Janney, Gregg Foreman, Scott McCloud and many more…
