The 1996 album re-released on vinyl on Touch and Go! As born-again surf rockers, Man or Astro-man? bring back the frothy, metallic tones of the eternal telecaster guitar. they also throw in spoken-word sound clips, which act as the ambient accompaniment to their trebly surf-rock sound. the result, 'experiment zero', is full of truly adventurous guitar-sample sculptures. in the middle of this instrumental feast, the band covers the talking heads' 'Television Man,' shedding light on their appreciation for martian flicks.Man or Astro-man?'s gleeful retro approach is reminiscent of when guitar instrumentals beckoned the ultimate wave and the final frontier.
