[SURF-AND-TURF SPACE PUNK] Among the most prolific underground acts of the ’90s, the mad scientists of Man or Astro-Man? dropped one sonic petri dish after another of sci-fi samples and electro audio tweaks, new-wave attitude and surf-rock guitars. The collective took a couple of hiatuses during the last decade before original members Star Crunch, Birdstuff and Coco the Electronic Monkey Wizard—not their real names—reunited in 2010, releasing last month’s Defcon 5…4…3…2…1 some 20 years after their eponymous debut. True to extraterrestrial form, clones, robots and more MST3K connections than you can shake a Tesla coil at populate the largely instrumental album. So, too, do the considerable skills of its creators, who can still blast out hooky collages of punk and fanboy-pleasing textures. Expect an epic live show, where most all manner of geek weirdness can and will happen.
