The team of obscuro-pop obsessives over at Brain Lapse Fanzine have recently loosed their thick, glossy, primary-colored first issue upon the grey matter of our nation. The Equals got the cover, Marbles took the centerfold, and The Orbits get several pages awash in baby-blue spot art. Why do you need to know? Because about 1/5 of the issue is dedicated to their super-massive interview with Mark Prellberg and Tom Sorrells, the titans behind Titan—that Kansas City power-pop Olympus brought to you from on high by last year’s Titan: It’s All Pop 2CD compilation.

Tom drops heaps of minute knowledge, while Mark talks mild smack about The Knack…all with the self-deprecating tone we’ve come to expect from these guys:

Tom: On limited-run pressings, we just never made any money. Ever.

Mark: A better way to look at it is, what were the records where we lost the least…?

A trove of classic Titan ephemera—pic sleeves, business cards, iron-ons, etc.—decorates the whole darn thing. You need a copy, don’t you?
