[SPACE NUTS] In the ’90s, Man or Astro-man? was the king rat of retro surf acts. Taking drive-in genre cinema clips from the early ’60s and analog sounds drenched in reverb and rocketing them right into outer space, the group was untouchable. But the band also harbored some diehard indie morals, keeping them below the glass ceiling of success. After a healthy break, the Astro-men are back, playing intimate stages and bringing new meaning to the word "retro." The reanimated band still packs a punch on stage, with a barrage of short, instrumental cosmic-surf tunes that will please bespectacled dads and their hopelessly undateable sons in equal measure.
