Birdstuff explains why Man…or Astro-Man? were so freakishly great on stage. If they’d appeared on the scene 20 years earlier, they’d have been on TV every weekend. (via grantimatter)
Totally. I saw them maybe half a dozen times and was blown away that a) they always went WAY beyond the “gimmick”; b) they did it with such insanely high energy and enthusiasm. Total talent + pure showmanship.
I only ever saw them one time, but it was FANTASTIC. I believe it was in the Heaven floor in Masquerade here in Atlanta. It was during the time that I was going to so many shows (pre-kids, when I was running Breastfed Records), that I would regularly get there early and find a corner to doze in while standing up between bands, and Masquerade was perfect for that. They were set up behind some PVC structure with a clear plastic front to it and their tore the MF-ing roof off the place. Also, there may have been some Little Debbie snack cakes thrown back and forth between the band and the audience at some point. Pure brilliance.
