Artist Bio:

Profile: Man or Astroman are four college kids from Auburn, Alabama, USA who play some of the most pristinely crafted surf instrumentals since the 1960s. Formed by CoCo the Electronic Monkey Wizard on alternate universe bass, Birdstuff on traps, Star Crunch on guitar, and Dr. Delecto & his Invisible Vaportron on bass, the group released their first full-length album, Is it...Man or Astro-Man?, in 1993. The band found time to put out a new 45 record practically every other week in addition to full-length releases like 1994's Destroy All Astromen!, 1996's Experiment Zero and 1997's Live Transmissions from Uranus. The themes of the tunes usually run the gamut from spies to sci-fi. Dexter X later replaced Dr. Delecto, and Starcrunch left the band as well. The collection, Beyond the Black Hole, was issued in summer 2001 and featured three brand new tracks.[Read More]
