Bio Log Page
For many eons of
future epochs people have wondered and will wonder, what is Astro
Al? Is Astro Al a band, or a character in a series of sci-fi comedy
stories? The answer is both.
The character of Astro Al was originally created and ran as a series
of short stories in the now defunct Boston rock mag Instant.
Now Astro Al is the name of one of the strangest musical experiences
in this or any other universe. How do you describe the cozmic martini
that is Astro Al the band?
Imagine if William Shatner replaced Jim Morrison
in the Doors. Picture an Ed Wood movie with a soundtrack by Pink Floyd.
Envision Edgar Allan Poe reciting a script by Monty Python. See in
your minds eye, low-fi 60’s astronauts partying with green skinned
space babes with bee hive hairdos. Now maybe you can dig it. If you
go to an Astro Al show you won’t have to imagine any of this
because you’ll witness it all in a Technicolor nightmare right
before your very eyes and ears.
This is a list of just a few places that felt the weird mutating music of Astro Al pulsing in the air.
