Dead Love: Voltaire Shares His “BRAINS!”

Musical interlude: a zombie children’s favorite – Voltaire’s “BRAINS!” from a LIVE performance at the New York Anime Fest. He’s a dark troubadour with a bit of the Guedeh about him in this performance. “Papa Guedeh,” the loa of the dead in the Vodoun belief system, is often represented in a top hat. When Guedeh shows up, he comes dressed for a party along with his barons. The party rarely seems big enough for the known dead and unknown dead, also among his minions, to join in—but ahhhh, the zombies. They serve it up, man.

    Voltaire has a secret message – use your brains…or lose them! Entertaining reminder that a brain is a terrible thing to waste. Thanks for the nudge!
