Man Or Astro-Man?
WebsiteMan Or Astro-Man?
The last time anyone saw Man Or Astro-Man?, the group was tearing up the Touch And Go showcase in Chicago after a five-year hiatus; the evening ended with Brian “Birdstuff” Teasley dismantling his drum kit and handing it off to bewildered listeners. The last time anyone saw the band before that, it was verging on meltdown, releasing multiple versions of what would prove to be its last CD, 2000’s A Spectrum Of Infinite Scale, and fooling around with gimmicky “Alpha” and “Gamma” clones. Now that the ’90s fixture has been revived from its “underground cryogenic center” for a while, fans are getting used to the band’s mutated sci-fi surf rock, gussied up with lots of B-movie samples, computer-generated banter, and shiny space suits back on the scene. So to keep things as fresh as retro-futuristically possible, the band has promised to unveil new “astro capabilities” to bring you “yesterday’s technology tomorrow.”
