Man Or Astro Man Background
Man Or Astro Man took
shape in Auburn, Alabama, over two decades ago. The band focused on being as over-the-top as possible, especially when it
came to their live shows. At about the same time, Man Or Astro Man forged friendships with bands that shared similar philosophies
with them as well as the penchant for instrumentation. The groups included: The Mono Men, The Phantom Surfers and Shadowy
Men on A Shadowy Planet. They also played a string of shows on the Southeast circuit, joining groups like The Woggles, The
Subsonics, Southern Culture on the Skids, The Flat Duo Jets and Hillbilly Frankenstein. Surf and garage music served as the
focal point of their style, which garnered the attention of David Crider of the Estrus record label. They issued their first
full-length studio album, is it... Man or Astro Man?, in 1993. They released several more efforts with Estrus before going
with Touch and Go. Experiment Zero, their first album under the Touch and Go label, dropped in 1996. To this day, the album
sustains its status as one of the best examples of modern instrumental guitar albums ever made. As the 90s and 2000s rolled
along, Man Or Astro Man continued to crank out albums. Their latest effort is Defcon 5... 4... 3... 2... 1, issued in 2013.
