Brainwashed Archives opened its doors in April of 1996 to host Web sites for groups Meat Beat Manifesto, Greater Than One, and within a year was building and hosting the most comprehensive public resources for groups like Nurse With Wound, Current 93, Cabaret Voltaire, Coil, Throbbing Gristle, Death In June, Diamanda Galas, HNAS, and The Legendary Pink Dots. Since then, official sites and/or archives have been created for Godspeed You Black Emperor!, Fridge, Jessica Bailiff, Windy & Carl, Volcano the Bear, Aranos, V/Vm, Bowery Electric, Stars of the Lid, Matmos, Gordon Mumma, Bedhead & The New Year, Luke Vibert, Bomb the Bass, Charles Atlas, Sybarite, Labradford, Organum, Thighpaulsandra, Little Annie Anxiety, Andrew Chalk, Christoph Heemann, Andreas Martin, and more.

Brainwashed Archives is a campaign to issue music from some of these acts from the vaults, either reissuing rare and out-of-print material or making music available on CD for the first time, restoring artwork, and meticulously remastering, when needed.

We launched in 2008 with three releases from Greater Than One. The next project in the campaign is from Coil.
