Biography

The Man or Astro-Man? story:

There is an undeniable connection between the South and occurrences of extra-terrestrial form. From other worldly jazz guru Sun Ra, to German rocket scientist Wernher von Braun, Alabama has always had more than an ample share of connections to outer space. Such is the case with Man or Astro-Man?, who arrived in a small college town in Alabama some years ago. ... Read more in Amazon's Man Or Astro-Man? Store

I love this album.
What is about the dark sounding neuvo-surf movement that just works?
Like Dick Dale in a bad mood, MOAM just plows through reverb-laced 2 minute nuggets, seemingly without every taking a breather.
Singing only on the "MST2000" theme cover, these instrumental slashers pay due homage to the giants of surf, while creating their own frantic pantina.
Perfect music for a late night drive down a dark highway.

Make reference to this album when you think of Man Or Astroman? because it is one of their classics. Man or Astroman? made this album with the original members, them being Starcrunch, Dr. Deleto and His Invisible Vaportron, Coco the Electronic Monkey Wizard, and Birdstuff. This album is just a wonderful example on how they play space warped surf music with amusing samples in their songs.
Reverb 10,000 is a great start to the album with its high pace and great beat, while Of Sex and Demise is a song that just relaxes a person and lets them sit back and just 'snap' their fingers. Intoxica, Bombora, Taco Wagon, and Time Bomb are woderful surf covers done by Man or Astroman? While when put in perspective, the other songs are just as great but that is for each individual to be the judge of.
In essence, Destroy All Astromen is one of Man or Astroman?'s finest albums. Although that term is used a bit loosely considering their other albums.

You've heard of Space-age bachelor pad music, the work of men like Esquivel. (If you haven't, go get some of his stuff and learn...I'll wait) But the music of Man or Astroman and other bands like Servotron deserves more notice than it gets.
MoAM is high speed, hard-hitting guitar rock, the kind of stuff the Beach Boys wish they could have gotten away with. Heavy with sound bites and samples from cheesy sci-fi movies, japanimation and classroom education films about atomic holocaust, they pound out tune after tune, no two alike, but all similar in their quality and toe-tappability.
A cover of the Mystery Science Theater Theme on this album give you a clue of the kind of stuff they like; they've also done a cover of The Munsters theme, and songs about Astro Boy and Zoltar from Battle of the Planets.
It's hard to be a throwback and something new at the same time, but they pull it off admirably.
When mankind travels to the stars, this is the kind of music they will take with them.

I love surf rock and this CD fills me up. It makes me feel wonderful when I'm sad and fiesty when I'm sluggish. I love the smooth, greasy jive of "Of Sex and Demise" to the crazed breakdown of "Bombora." I love B science fiction movies adn this CD brings back that feel and more. The instrumental ability of teh band was at one of their best at this time and excellently shines through. I have heard Man ...Or Astroman albums and this is by far the best of the bunch. For a started looking to break into surf rock, this is great; it was my first. I would not give up this CD for anyother in my collection.

This has become a favorite of mine! Its great at all parties. Total B-Movie soundtrack stuff - way cooler than just surfy stuff - lots of punk and energy too! FUN FUN.

Amazing surf music. Very tight instrumental arrangements. There is something fresh and exciting about these songs even though this album is 20 years old.

Man...or Astroman? puts on one heck of a CD with space-age surfer music that makes it fun to listen to. With an homage to B-Movies and beyond, the rattling of guitars and drums makes Man...or Astroman? a keeper. A must for having friends over for cocktails....like your drinks, they are sweet and intoxicating!
